Very scarce Elgin "Model 6619G" men's Retro Modern design wristwatch in solid 10K yellow gold with stainless steel caseback, circa 1947.
This unusual model has a solid 10K gold bezel and a stainless steel caseback. It was priced at $85.00 in 1947. It is very scarce and this is one of only a handful I've ever seen. It is in excellent condition, showing only light wear, and a few light marks. Screwdown caseback is excellent and unengraved. The case measures 38mm long and 31mm wide. Crown shows some brassing. Original black finish gilt print dial is good, with some patina from age. Has new acrylic crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 16-jewel Elgin grade 539 hack-setting manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
