In this episode of “What Is On My Wrist,” Cam talks about a very interesting Elgin chronograph that retains its original box and papers from the 1960s. Elgin was an American watchmaker with a very storied history dating back to 1864 that produced some fascinating watches throughout the company’s history.
Unfortunately, Elgin disbanded in the year 1968. All US manufacturing discontinued and the Elgin name was sold. After the Elgin names initial sale, the title passed through several hands, which resulted in some interesting pieces that were manufactured under the Elgin name from all over the world.
This Elgin Chronograph ref. 7452 is a complete time-capsule full set. The case of the ref. 7452 is reminiscent of the Heuer Camaros of the same era. The “panda” matte white dial with black subdials is signed T Swiss T and features charming red accents. The watch employs a Valjoux 7736 chronograph movement and comes complete with all of its original accessories.
