The Essence of Modern Business -Correct Time CLOSE figuring on Time is so much a matter of course these days that it is hard to realize what life would be without it. The business man takes it for granted that his mail will be on his desk every morning. He looks at a railroad time table-tele graphs an appointment half way across the Continent-and keeps it to the dot. And it all depends on uniform time-keeping by the more than 400,000 Railroad Watches in the pockets of the responsible railroad men of America. Perfecting the watch of today has engaged many scientific minds. To mention any one Company might seem invidious. But the peculiar pride of the Railroad Man in his Elgin Watch is worthy of remark. All the more so, since this pride is shared by other Elgin Watch owners, in all walks and occupations of life. * * * * "FatherTime"-one of Elgin's popularRailroad move ments, here shown cased up with Winding Indicator Dial. * * * Twenty-one jewels; adjusted to temperature, isochronism andfive positions.
