Elgin “Legionnaire” men’s Art Deco design wristwatch in chromium nickel, circa 1929.
This variety of the “Legionnaire” is one of the scarcest in the series and has a barrel-shaped case with black inlaid Art Deco stylized geometric designs on the bezel. This is only the second example of this model I have ever offered. It is in excellent condition showing only very slight wear to the chromium finish. Caseback is very good, with some light wear and pitting, and initials. The case measures 37mm long and 30mm wide. Original dial is very good. The watch is powered by its correct 7-jewel Elgin grade 485 manual wind movement, just serviced and running well.
