Rare Elgin "Legionnaire" men's Art Deco design wristwatch in chromium nickel, circa 1929.
This model has yet to be identified from known Elgin catalogs and advertisements. It shares the same case design as the 1928 "Legionnaire 303" but with a more highly stylized Art Deco design bezel. I have only seen a handful of this model. It is in very good condition with light overall wear to the chromium plating to the bezel. Caseback is good, with some pitting. The case measures 38mm long and 29mm wide. Original luminous dial is very good. Has new glass crystal. The watch is powered by its correct 7-jewel Elgin grade 485 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
