Welcome to our little catalog, its a work in progress and no doubt will never be 100% completed. 

A few quick hints

  • Retail window - these are dates that we have seen the models advertised, its to provide an idea of how common a model 'might be'.
  • Why are there multiple entries for the same model ? - When Wadsworth got killed off, a few models were produced by different case companies, also when movements were replaced, Elgin would have the case updated and either use the same number or allocate a different number (have a look at the Lady Elgin Clubwoman for an example).
  • Nothing is gospel, its all up for change at any point in time.
  • Missing details is just that, we don't have it.

Search and filtering will be implemented in a while.
