Elgin Watch Co. 16 size 19 jewel open face lever-set B.W. Raymond Up/Down winding indicator with rare "Elgin Avion" metal dial. The Avion dial is very distinctive with its indicator register marked "Flight Hours", with extra large 3/6/9 hour numerals, bold triangle at the 12 O'clock position, and with large circles at the other hour positions. Definitely one of the most unique and eye-catching of American wind indicator dials. Watch is housed in an "Elgin B.W. Raymond Model" signed gold-filled case. Movement serial number is 20635458.

Running and wind indicator functioning correctly. Very nice looking movement with excellent color and luster. Winding wheels have some small bits of oxide. Dial faces up well with a few mild spots, the largest being above the front of the word Avion. Case is attractive with a strong overall in hand look and feel but does have some filing marks at the right side of its pendant and to the adjacent portion of the bow. Good glass crystal.
