Elgin Automatic Navigator c.1969

475.00

Reminiscent of the Seiko 6117-8000 circa 1970, this Elgin navigator style watch brings a glowing dial and well-loved orange pylon sweep hand to the table, packaged in a popular bezeled cushion case that many brands used during the period.

Many at the time used the notorious “import cases” at the time, but this timepiece indeed features an all stainless steel Swiss case. It houses a solid Swiss FHF 909 motor, characterized by 17 jewels, day/date display, and high 21,600 beats per hour.

Strapped on a vintage tropic-style rubber dive band, this wristwatch is sure to catch some attention…although don’t blame BOT if it’s mainly yours. All day long.

[All vintage watches are expected to function as described. However, due to age and generally unknown service history (unless otherwise stated), these watches may not keep time as accurately as new or quartz (battery) watches. This is completely normal and does not indicate that there is a major problem. Like your automobile, all mechanical watches will likely need to be serviced at some point in time. Please keep this in mind, as there is no guarantee regarding when these vintage watches may need standard maintenance. Every watch sold by Buying On Time is done so with the expectation that it is not currently in need of service or repair, unless noted.
