A private label Elgin for a Melbourne jewellery store, from 1916.

Best thing is its from my own neck of the woods giving me a local connection to Elgin. Needs work.

Lord Elgin Randall, 1953, originally sold for $71.50. This has a faceted crystal, so you feel like you've had one too many any time you check the time. This model appears in the 1951 catalogue but doesn't appear in retail ads until 1953.

How soon before this is affordable and enables the home brew users to create their own designs ?

These photos came out too dark, unfortunately. I should have retaken them at the time. But at any rate this is a 12 size, 7 jewel, Waltham 1894 model in an 8 sided case.

I sure don't take escapements for granted. I'm amazed at all the clever designs people have come up with over the centuries.

But I still haven't found adjusting swiss lever escapements to be particularly trivial. :-)

2266 Elgin B. W. Raymond wrist chronometer, released in 1961 and was the first wristwatch approved for use on the rail road, this would be the death nail in the pocket watch market which was only 2% of all watch sales in 1961. Currently not running, needs a new dial, new strap and some TLC.

Here is another Waltham 1894 model, also in an 8 sided case, but with a different dial.

Lord Elgin Panaroma, 1957, originally sold for $89.50, part of the horizon line. There are several horizon lines similar to this, some with enamel on the outer chapter ring, if you take the crystal off, be extremely careful not to look at it the wrong way, it will be gone.
