Lord Elgin 4624 “Cheswick” (c. 1955)

Classic 1950s Lord Elgin with 14K gold filled case and a 21 jewel movement.

The Lord Elgin model 4624 was one of the named models produced by Elgin in the mid-1950s. This particular model was known as the “Cheswick” and was at one point marketed as part of their “Personality Series” watches.

This watch employed one of the many idiosyncratic case styles Elgin experimented with in the 1950s. The “pinched” case look of the Cheswick was one of the more successful models and remains popular with collectors today. This example is in excellent shape and is all original, a survivor.

The watch has a 14K yellow gold filled case, both bezel and back. The case is in Excellent shape with no brassing or wear through. The dial is in Very Good shape with only a small spot near the 11 o’clock marker — a spot that is largely unseen when the dial is inside the case. The original gold applied numbers are in Very Good shape, as are the original hands.

The movement is Elgin’s high quality 21 jewel 670 movement. The watch is running well and keeping good time, with excellent reserve.

We’ve added to this watch a faux leather band. This is a long sized band and suitable for a man. The watch itself is large for the period — measure 40mm from lug tip to lug tip and 22mm in width.

Note that this watch has not been serviced while in our possession and we do not know the service history of this piece. While it is running well and keeping good time now we do advise all vintage watch owners to have their watches regularly serviced to assure the longest enjoyment.
