Scarce Elgin “Oval” men's Art Deco design wristwatch in 14K white gold fill, circa 1931.

This watch was catalogued as the "Model 663" but most Elgin collectors refer to it as the "Oval" because of its remarkable resemblance to the Hamilton "Oval." Both cases were made by the Fahys Watch Case Co. It was priced at $48.00 in 1931. This example is in excellent condition with no brassing. Caseback is excellent, with a presentation engraving from 1931. Case measures 37mm long and 28mm wide. Refinished luminous dial is superb. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 15-jewel Elgin grade 428 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.

Price $475. SOLD
