    Today my dad's 1950 Elgin which he wore through college. He gave it to me a few years ago with cracked crystal and in need of service. He had no idea when he stopped wearing it, exactly, but probably by the time my parents married 60 years ago.

    Very clean movement (and this was before service)

    Ow!

    Yes, apologies for the eye sore. It's out of focus and grainy. Took it first thing AM in a dimly lit bedroom with an out dated iPhone. Leaves plenty of room for improvement ;)
