Very rare Lord Elgin "50 Million" men's Retro Modern design wristwatch in solid 18K yellow gold, circa 1951.

In 1951, Elgin introduced a special limited edition solid 18K gold watch with hinged lugs to commemorate its production of 50 million jeweled watch movements. Only 1,000 of the watches were produced, each with a speical gold-flashed movement bearing unique serial numbers from 50,000,000 to 50,000,999. The watch was priced at $500.00 in 1951. This example is in excellent condition showing only very light wear, and no dents or dings. Massive hinged lugs are excellent. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. The case measures 42mm long and 25mm wide. Refinished dial is superb, has solid 18K gold applied markers. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct, special gold-flashed 21-jewel Elgin grade 670 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.

Price $1,950.
