ELGIN ...... TIME* KEEPER * TO * THE SUCCESSFUL fi 1 I'd feel almost as lost without my right leg as without my trusty watch One of a series of little biographies of Elgin Watches WRITTEN BY EMINENT ELGINEERS I find that a great deal can be accom plished in a busy man's life by using up the corners of time that very often are wasted. Punctuality has gotten many a man a good job and kept it for him after he once had it. Everything in a business way during the last ten years has been run under a very high pressure. Men who used to do one thing are now doing many. And to accomplish many things in a day's work, a watch that keeps time and men who keep time are very necessary. Many figures have been compiled about many things, some of them aston SELC ishing figures. But nobody has ever fig ured up the amount of time wasted by the average business man in waiting for tardy people to keep an appointment. Personally, I would be about as well off without my leg as without my watch -which, by the way, is an Elgin. My father gave me my first Elgin on my twenty-first birthday. I carried this watch for many years and it always kept time, otherwise I would not have kept it. In later years, I have carried an Elgin strap-watch in place of my Elgin pocket piece. But both Elgins are what we would call in our business "hundred percen ters." They never fall down-are always on the job-and always on time. -by WM.
