Vintage mid century 14k two tone yellow and white gold tank tread bracelet tonneau shaped Lord Elgin 21 jewel wrist watch circa 1940-50. This would have originally been a mans watch back in the day, but by today's standards this would be considered unisex and is appropriate for a man or a woman. We have images included that show the watch both on my wrist, which is quite small, and also on my husbands wrist, which is stocky. The case measures 1-7/16" from lug tip to tip (36mm) x 1" wide tapering to 13/16" wide not including the width of the winding crown. Off white eggshell or champagne metal dial with raised yellow gold Arabic numeral markers, simple gold baton hands. With sub seconds dial, mechanical wind up 21 jewel movement. The dial is completely original and has never been refinished. There is very mild but honest faint wear on the dial, extremely pleasing and facing up very well. The back of the case is hallmarked "14K Gold". The band has a hinged folding lock clasp that is marked "14K". This feels extremely flexible and fluid, very silky on the wrist. In excellent very well cared for condition. The complete weight of the watch band and case (WITHOUT the crystal or movement) is 42 grams. Total length is 7-1/4". There are two placement adjustments depending on where you clasp the end, 7" length, or 7-1/4" length. If the watch needs to be shortened we strongly recommend taking it to a professional jeweler. My husband, who is a watch repairman, has freshly serviced (cleaned oiled and timed) this watch. The watch is running well and keeping excellent time, winds and sets smoothly, however, we make no guarantee towards this watches performance in the future.
