Yes the 40s watches are my favorites. 20s-30s are great too along with some 50s. I notice that newer than 50s watches usually seem more cheaply made and harder to fix, at least those in my price range.

I think the 40s is the sweet spot for the average quality of an Elgin. Certainly there was some high grade stuff earlier - but the average Elgin of the 30s is a 7 jewel model. Not that they can't run well - but generally they are worn.

Good luck with your continued hunting...
