Sleek Elgin “Legionnaire 1812” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in steel, circa 1937.
This smaller-sized Elgin has a wonderful stepped round case with a striking two-tone dial with silver inlay. It was priced to consumers at $29.75 in 1937. It is crisp, excellent condition showing almost no wear. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. The case measures 32mm long and 25mm wide. Refinished gold inlaid two-tone dial is superb. Has new glass crystal. This watch is powered by its correct 15-jewel Elgin grade 519 manual wind movement, just serviced and running well.
