Earliest advert for an American made wrist watch.

Here is a really poor advert for an Elgin man's wristlet watch, from June 1910. This is easily the earliest known, beating the previous best by over a year.
You can see the wire lugs and the outline of the strap, a known strap type called the Pearson's strap, first registered in 1908.
