Here is a rare and very collectible Elgin De Luxe “Doctor’s Watch”. This is a long rectangular watch. The dial was made much longer than the movement in order to have a much larger seconds area. For this reason the case had to be made longer as well. The larger seconds dial was especially useful to doctors and nurses when taking a pulse or in similar applications when an event had to be timed to the seconds. Notice that the winding crown is not in the center of the long side but directly in line with hands pinion. This watch is form 1940s. The dial had been professionally refinished. The 10K gold filled case shows some wear, please view all the pictures. There are very few of these on the market and to get a much better example you will have to pay a much higher price. 17 jewels movement with a recent service. Priced here at $850.
I FINALLY got a custom-made deployant buckle from Igor, 18K WG with my choice of engraving, and I was THRILLED with the result — prompt, honest, courteous service. I recommend him without reservation.
I bought 2 watches from Igor over the past 6 months and it is a pleasure to deal with him. Igor is knowledgeable, accepts all questions and always replies quickly. I recommend him for sure
Just completed a deal on a 1680 as an international buyer with Igor at www.afinewatch.com . He maintained great communications, had a polite and informed manner and came through with a nice watch for the cash I paid. A trustworthy guy…….!
Just completed a deal with Igor, and may I say It couldn’t have gone smoother. Delivery from the US to the UK was simply stunning. Have no worries dealing with this gentleman.
Completed a very smooth transatlantic deal with Igor. he goes the extra mile for his customers,very professional. kind regards.
