Hey All!

Just sharing a new addition to my collection, it's an Elgin wrist watch I picked up on FB marketplace at a bargain. From research on the Elgin database of the serial number, looks like the movement is a 1926 462 grade 3/0s size. The case is a Brooklyn Watch Case Co. Monarch gold filled. Threw on a leather strap and will be trying it out tonight! Excited to keep learning more about this watch, I've gotten really interested in these early wristwatches and now that I have this one the 3/0s size really isn't as small as I worried about before having it, it's different than the trend of gigantic flat watches and the bold numerals really stand out.
