Elgin Type A-11 USA Army WW2 watch in NOS Condition & Serviced a genuine ” barn find ” watch !. A rare piece of military history the A11 was issued to USA servicemen. This watch has the hard to find white dial and having just been serviced is running perfectly.

The condition indicates to me a NOS watch that has never been worn but does have some very slight “handling “marks.

12 months warranty and certificate of authenticity supplied.



The Elgin National Watch Company, commonly known as Elgin Watch Company, was a major US watch maker from 1864 to 1968.
It was during the Second World War that all civilian work was stopped and Elgin made military watches, chronometers for the U.S. Navy, fuses for artillery shells, altimeters and instruments for aircraft and sapphire bearings used in the aiming of cannon. The Elgin Company was awarded ten Army-Navy “E” awards, for full filling contracts ahead of schedule.
The Elgin Company diversified after World War II making decorator clocks, transistor radios, wedding rings, but the heart’s beat was the Elgin watch.
