A USA made Elgin military wristwatch. These watches were used from WW2 through to the war in Vietnam. This is a fully restored example using some reproduction parts. It is in really nice condition. The movement has a hack feature, which stops the hands when the crown is pulled. This allowed time to be syncronised between watches, when required. The watch is fitted with a beige canvas military strap, as it originally would have been.
The black dial has luminous hands, markers and numerals, a centre sweep seconds hand and inner 24 hour numerals. It is signed Elgin in matt black. The watch feature an oversize crown to allow it to be wound whilst wearing gloves. These old US military watches are lovely things to own, and have a unique look when worn.
Dimensions = 16mm between the lugs, 31mm w/o the crown, 35mm with the crown and 39mm lug to lug.
