Lord Elgin “Model 4803” men’s Streamline Moderne design wristwatch in 14K yellow gold fill, circa 1942.

The “Model 4803” has an unusual silvered dial with exploding Roman numerals set in a pastel green track. It is very difficult to find this model with a nice, original dial. It was priced to consumers at $55.00 in 1942. This example is in crisp, excellent condition with no brassing. Caseback is excellent and unengraved. The case measures 34mm long and 26mm wide. Original two-tone silver and green dial is excellent. The watch is powered by its correct 21-jewel Elgin grade 556 manual wind movement, just serviced and running well.
