Very scarce Elgin “Model 618” men’s Streamline Moderne design wristwatch in 14K white gold fill, circa 1929.
This version of the Elgin's "E-1" case design has a striking gold incuse exploding numeral dial. This dial is very hard to find and this is the first one I have offered in several years. It was priced at $35.00 in 1929. This example is in crisp, excellent condition with no brassing. Caseback is superb and unegraved. The case measures 34mm long and 27mm wide. Refinished dial is superb. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 7-jewel Elgin grade 430 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
