Very scarce Lord Elgin “Streamline 2803” men’s Streamline Moderne design wristwatch in solid 14K yellow gold, circa 1937.
The “Model 2803" has a large, rectangular case and was priced at $85.00 in 1937. It is one of the largest solid gold models Elgin produced and is quite scarce; this is the first I have offered in several years. It is in excellent condition showing only very light wear. Caseback is excellent, with a name engraving. The case measures 42mm long and 25mm wide. Original two-tone dial is excellent with slight patina, has gold embossed numerals. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 21-jewel Elgin grade 531 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
