SCREW DOWN CASE BACK WITH LARGE CROWN CASEMENT
THIS IS AN AWESOME WRIST WATCH. VERY UNUSUAL COMPARED TO THE STANDARD DIALED ELGIN MILITARY WATCHS OF THE PERIOD. ELGIN PATENTED THIS CASE DESIGN IN RESPONCE TO THE ROLEX PATENTED OYSTER CASE. A SIMILAR CLOSURE DEVISE CASE BACK FIT INTO THE CASE AND A SPECIAL WRENCH WAS REQUIRED TO OPEN. IN ADDITION, A CROWN CASEMENT WITH LARGE MILITARY CROWN WAS ADDED. THIS FIRST MODEL WOULD BE FOLLOWED WITH A SCREWDOWN CROWN. NOTE THE LARGNESS OF THE CROWN: EVENTUALLY THIS VERY DESIGN WOULD LEAD TO THE LARGE CROWNS OF MILITARY DIVERS CASES.
