Elgin “Huron” men’s Retro Modern design wristwatch in 10K yellow rolled gold plate and stainless steel with original bracelet, circa 1955.
The “Huron” has a large square case with a textured finish punctuated by black inlaid markers at each hour. It was priced at $59.50 in 1955. This example is in crisp, excellent condition with no brassing. Steel caseback is superb and unengraved, with all of its factory brushed finish. The case measures 36mm long and 28mm wide. Original black dial is excellent. Glass crystal is excellent, with a few faint scuffs. This watch is powered by its correct 17-jewel Elgin grade 712 manual wind movement, just serviced and running well. Original Hadley metal stretch bracelet is very good, with some marks and minor wear.
