Mr. Toad, I love the bumpers as well. I'll look for a name for you.

For this evening, the 1962 Elgin Polarus. 19 jewels, 10k gold with flexible lugs.

Tuesday's watch is an Elgin 6720:

Not bad for a $15 watch, running well and complete with bracelet!

(Does anyone know whether this model has a name?)

Grumpy, I like that bumper! I'm fascinated by automatics in square cases, since the mechanism seems to push most designers to use round.
It is in the 1951 Catalog as the model 6720 as you have it listed. Isn't this during the period when Elgin just listed them with the model numbers? I know in early years and then again in the mid 50s they used names, but don't usually see names used for 40s and early 50s.

Yup, 1951, so no name. Doesn't appear in the 54 catalogue. But, by golly, it has the original bracelet.

Good spot noticing the original bracelet. With the original bracelet, its a model 6720x. The strap model had a different letter after the 6720.

Neat bracelet on that ST-6500. A Waltham Premier today. A gift from an Uncle in Huntsville, Texas.

Some guy from Australia declared it was 14k Friday, so here is my early 50's Lord Elgin Henslee. 14k gold and it uses the 21 jewel, 680 movement.
