Very rare Elgin "600 Series" men's Machine Age design wristwatch in 14K white gold fill, circa 1929.
This unidentified factory-cased Elgin is very rare, it is one of only three I have ever seen. It does not appear in any Elgin documentation discovered so far by Elgin researchers, but is likely part of Elgin's "600" series of models based on its 6/0-size movement and production date of 1929. This watch has a four-piece case with a faceted bezel and special hinged lug bars that attach inside the center case body. This example is in excellent condition with only a tiny bit of wear at the corners of the center case body. Caseback is very good with a monogram, and some light lines of wear along the edges. Case measures 29mm long and 29mm wide. Original dial is excellent with some light patina and a few light marks; has gold embossed numerals. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 15-jewel Elgin grade 428 movement, just serviced and running strong.
