Case: The octagonal shaped gold plated case has ornate Art Deco era engravings on the front and measures 28 mm across (including crown - and 26 not including the crown.) It is 7 mm thick. The crown is located at the 3 o'clock position. The wire lugs are adhered at the 12 and 6 o'clock areas.

Dial: The near mint round dial has an original black finish coordinated with white markings and hands.
The seconds sub-dial is located at the unusual area of the 9 o'clock position. There is a white colored 60 seconds scale around the outer edge of the sub-dial and the sweeping seconds hand is white as well. It has white colored Arabic numerals for all twelve hour markers. The antique-style hour and minutes hands are white in color. The crystal has a slight curvature on the surface and is straight on the sides and is raised 1 mm above the case at its center.
It is signed Elgin below the 12 o'clock position.
Movement: Mechanical Wind. Marked Elgin U.S.A. and the serial number 24207829 (which dates this watch to 1920.)
Strap: A brand new IW 10 mm genuine leather XL size strap (designed especially for wire lug watches.) It is sewn around the edges and has a very nice silver toned buckle.
Comments: THere is an all original Pure Art Deco wire lug timepiece from 1920 by Elgin. It features a 10K gold filled octagonal shaped beautifully engraved case with a black dial, white markings and a 60 seconds sub-dial at the unusual location of the 9 o'clock position.
This watch is in excellent cosmetic and running condition, and is an absolutely beautiful timepiece. It keeps splendid time.
