From the back-cover:
In the early morning of October 3, 1966, a blast was heard throughout the city of Elgin, Illinois. In just a few seconds, the once proud symbol of the Elgin national Watch Company was gone, ending a one hundred year relationship between the company and the city that shares its name.
This is the story of the famous watch company. A company that produced over sixty million watches in the span of one hundred years, dominated the watchmaking industry until World War Two, and left the city of Elgin with a permanent legacy — one that still serves the community today!
