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.
