Elgin "Legionnaire 430" men's Art Deco design wristwatch in chromium nickel, circa 1929.
The “Legionnaire 430” has a large cushion-shaped case with Art Deco stylized geometric designs with black inlay. It was priced at $20.00. This example is in crisp, near mint condition with no wear or pitting. Case exhibits all of its factory-applied frosted and polished finishes. Caseback is excellent and unengraved, with some light scratches. The case measures 38mm long 29mm wide. Original dial is very good, with some patina. The watch is powered by its correct 7-jewel Elgin grade 485 manual wind movement, just serviced and running strong.
