Only 4000 of these beauties were made in 1943-44 only!

Also marked "adjusted 5 positions" and "temperature", approved by all rail lines...Elgin's best selling railroad watch! Also features an original porcelain Dial in mint condition, and a beautiful and quite scarce Elgin Style 25 #3156 Yellow Gold Filled "Diamond Bar" Case with the signature wide bow signed "cased and timed by Elgin" on inside back! Case shows very little wear, personalization on back but still looks great as you can see. These #3156 Cases in this good of condition and in yellow gf are almost impossible to find nowdays. These were carried by railroad professionals who demanded accurate timekeeping. Good Running order. Movement shows beautifully...nice thruout! Folks, this movement is one of the harder to acquire in the Elgin line, and seldom appear. Very nice package here!

I've priced this one to sell quickly...first come first served!

Look it over carefully, and I'm sure you'll agree it's a fine one, and a steal at this price.
