Elgin WW2 Ord Dept USA


Worn during the war, the Ordinance Department watches were used by boots on the ground personnel. The crystal has turned yellow from the sun and shows everything it went through during the war. Yes we could’ve added a new crystal, gave it a quick clean and then added it to the shop; but we didn’t, we kept it in original condition. The character of the case and crystal make this such a cool piece.
