Lord Elgin Ref. 4639

Yellow gold-filled Lord Elgin Ref. 4639, circa 1952, has an exaggerated hourglass case, measuring 24mm x 32mm, with snapback, faceted and beveled band and bezel with beaded-texture on two sides of the bezel, extended lugs and a beveled crystal. The matte dial features applied goldtone Arabic numerals and dot hour indexes, dauphine hands. The 21 jewel caliber 670 movement is warrantied by Aaron Faber for 12 months. This is a great value for mid-century design.

As with most American watches from 1930's to the 1960's, while the movements are Swiss, the styling is American, driven by a competitive design market that brought Benrus, Hamilton, Lord Elgin and Bulova to the peak of the watch design market in these decades.
