Thank you man .. my grandfather died when I was two so I don't think I have any memories of him. He owned his own pharmacy in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Bushwick. I have a clear idea of watch's value money wise but of course it's most valuable to me because of who wore it. I wear it every day and hopefully when my 12 y/o gets older he will too.

Lord Elgin Shockmaster "Barrister"

This wristwatch model was released circa 1958. The cases were 14K rolled yellow gold-filled. The manual Elgin 713 caliber 21-jewel movement constituted the powerhouse. The splayed lugs on these watches set them apart.

My pictured specimen is just back from the watchmaker. I had a black leather strap affixed to it, not knowing how these watches were originally decked out. Does anyone know what strap was included from the factory?
