"All Previous Graduation Watch-Selling Records Shattered!" "Jewelers Experience Best Commencement Season in History!" "May-June Volume in Time Pieces Reaches New High Level!"
Are these headlines typical of the sort that will make their appearance as the graduation season draws to a close? The answer is "Yes," according to the officials of The Elgin National Watch Company. And as one important factor in the success of the season, they point to Elgin's advertising program in national magazines-one of the most impressive watch-selling campaigns ever launched in the pre-graduation season.
The 17 magazines which have been chosen to carry the Elgin story represent the cream of America's publications.
Both of the country's leading weeklies high school students will appear in Scholastic, the American High School Weekly. And special ads will be running in Outdoor Life, Field and Stream, Motor Boating, The Sportsman, The Yachtsman, National Sportsman and Yachting.
To assure jewelers maximum results from the Elgin advertising, full pages in full color will appear in all the big circulation magazines on the list. Each of these pages shows a wide selection of Elgin watches-the models expected to be most in demand during the graduation period. The background of each page is brilliantly handled in graduation colors for attention-value-and the time pieces themselves appear in their natural tones of gold and platinum. The text of each advertisement is directed toward those who desire to choose a truly fine, lasting gift at commencement.
