VINTAGE ROLEX, VINTAGE & USED SWISS, AMERICAN WATCHES & JEWELRY

Elgin AOPA 24 Hour Stainless Steel circa 1950’s RARE

$3,250.00

Before the AOPA began offering their members logo signed Breitling watches, they were offering them this ultra rare Elgin model with 24 hour dial and with gilded AOPA logo. This watch was only produced for roughly 3 years before the AOPA switched to Breitling, making this far more rare than any other dial marked with the famed wings. A fascinating find, and beautiful artifact from the beginning of one of the most important aeronautic organizations in the world. Powered by 17 jewel manual wind Elgin movement with sweep seconds. With beautifully patina’d radium indexes and hands, and red arrow tipped sweep seconds hand. Case back marked “Durapower Mainspring,” “Resistant to Shock, Dust, Water, Magnetism.” Recently fully serviced and guaranteed and offered with your choice of sporty style strap. Recently fully serviced by one of our veteran watchmakers and offered with our 1 year warranty of accurate timekeeping and operation.
