High-End Elgin Royal Canadian Navy 17j 16s WWII Era Military Pocket Watch, Gilded Movement ca.1943
Here we have an Elgin Royal Canadian Navy open-faced Military Pocket Watch, made in USA ca. 1943 (World War Two era). This is a 16-size watch, and measures approximately 51mm (2") diameter. This watch features a nickel silver screw-back-and-bezel case, a 17-jewel adjusted stem-wind and stem-set movement with a gilded finish, and a single sunk black porcelain dial with luminous hands and numerals (the luminous material no longer glows). The case is in excellent condition, showing signs of occasional pocket carry. The dial is in excellent condition except for a minor hairline near the 11 o'clock position (not noticeable by the naked eye). The movement runs and keeps excellent time, last serviced April 2019. Overall, this is a presentable and important military watch that is ready to carry or collect with pride. This is an excellent crossover collectible of interest to both watch collectors and Military buffs. You can own this very high grade, highly collectible American-made pocket watch now. Thank You.
