Holy shit Flushes - where’d you get that awesome Shockmaster!? I’ve never actually seen that dial on another Elgin outside my dad’s 1951 “643”.

By the way, did you see where at 6 o’clock on the dial in VERY fine print it says “Swiss” (because of the A.Schild ebauche)? That always confused the crap out of me who understood Elgin to be a proud ‘Merican brand.

And that image of it on a box of Cohibas? Man, that is First Class all the way!

Way less artsy, but here’s an image of mine with non-lume dauphine hands:

Cool you know about the A-S movement- they only used them for a couple'a these models. Mine was my grandfather's and AIR it was purchased for him as a birthday present by my grandmother in 1949. The case is gold filled and the flex bracelet is rolled gold florentined links over steel. It looks, and amazingly, runs like the day she bought it.

The red or red tipped arrow seconds hands, I believe, indicates the Shockmaster series with the A.Schild movement and gold filled cases- I believe the few they did with those movements in that series in solid 14kt. gold had blued seconds hands and were sold on various straps.

Man, do I miss my Esplandidos- I used to smuggle them back from TJ purchased at a very cool old rustic tobacco shop in Rosarito on trips for lobster dinners. I've had to give up cigars- I hate being old's guts.
