Appreciation of an Elgin Gift Watch will grow as Time Passes

Commencement Day!  A day for gifts that will be treasured through the years with all the sentiment of the occasion on which they are received.

Through three generation Elgin Watches have gladdened the hearts of graduates.  To many a grown man and woman the joy of school days is recalled by the inscription engraved on the inside of his or her watch case.

Truly , the appreciation of an Elgin Gift Watch grows with the passing of the years.

One way to be certain about your watch is to select from the Elgins at your Jeweler's.
