THE ELGIN a deionnairre a blue bblooded watchfor red loodecld men- J9 00 to 2'7 AN ARISTOCRAT among . watches, heir to the ELGIN tradition. Made for active,red bloodedmenim patient with wrist watches that get temperamental. The LEGIONNAIRE takes the pound of a fist on the desk top ... and ticks nonchalantly on. Takes the shock of your golf swing 78 times in a round ... or is it a 108 ? Takes the punishment of a writhing wheel when you're driving a cruel detour. Takes whatever you have to give it. Yet here is no sacrifice of style for stamina. The LEGION NAIRE'S debonair good looks (it's hardly larger than a quarter) befits a formal dinner even as its sturdiness is equal to a fishing trip in Maine. The raised -I numerals tell the time in half a glance. A luminous dial dismisses darkness. The marvelously precise ELGIN movement runs 40 to 42 hours, so if you forget to wind your watch your appointment list won't suffer .. . Four smart models, from $19 to $27.50 ...
