I got more than I bargained for:
I was treated to a behind-the-scenes

Why, as much talent, thought, ef

new watch design as into the latest
Paris femme fatale creation!
Take for instance. America’s
largest watch manufacturers in El

men’s and ladies’ watches in the
moderately-priced category to ap

heart. Then the fireworks started.
A panel of judges was carefully se

notch New York designers. These
experts drew up a list of qualifica
tions a design must meet to get
their approval. Packed into the list
was research from throughout the
field; information from people who
forecast fashion, jewelers who find
out trends, the man on the street,
designers, manufacturers. Boiled
down, the qualifications said today's
watch must be simple and function

told at a glance. It must be smart
and uncluttered in appearance.
With the list firmly in hand, the
panel of judges next went over
hundreds of designs submitted by
Elgin. They came up with five
men’s and five ladies’ watches. And
