Elgin Lord Elgin Electronic collection, these stainless steel cased models were never released from the factory and rumoured to have all been destroyed. The retail version was on market in a gold filled case between 1961 - 1963 and cost more than the Hamilton electronic watch at the time. It's rare to see one of these, having 32 in one collection is unheard of, the next biggest collection has 4 in it. These watches date 1962 - 1964, later than it was thought Elgin had abandoned electronic development.

1957 Lord Elgin Futura, scarce example with the dial printing intact, this one was an award watch, so they had the 23 jewels on the bottom of the crystal replaced with their company name and year. Sorry for the glare, this was an early photo while I was still learning to shoot watches. This watch has a sister model called the Lord Elgin Briarwood which has a white face.

Heres a great guide to photographing watches
Anyone who delights in watches and has a presence online will at some point want to take a few photographs of them. The problem is watches aren’t the easiest thing in the world to photograph.. Why?...

That is an unusually (and attractively) decorated mainspring barrel!

+Michael Grocott - Thanks for the information on that, it's good to know.  I worked on this one a couple of years ago.  It had no sign of any such markings, so yes, the lettering must have come off easily.
