Description

This is an Elgin Admiral Benson Trench watch in a YGF case. It is difficult to find this model in a YGF case. The case is excellent but for some chips on one case back corner by someone trying to open the case incorrectly The enamel dial is in excellent condition. The case is missing its swivel lugs at the top of the case. The missing lugs can be made by a jeweler inexpensively.

The O size movement is not running.

It is $135.00 OBO, in “AS IS” condition, please add $11.00 for shipping. SOLD

This watch can easily be converted to an Illinois Admiral Benson by replacing the existing movement and dial with Ilinois ones. I have Illinois movements and dials available.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for looking.
