This is one of the first battery operated watches made that has a tuning fork design that hums and the vibration tell the movement to move the hands at just the right speed. This watch has just been serviced by Dieter the Accutron Man so it is running good and keeping good time. Stainless Steel case has movable bezel and mint original black dial with date at 3.

Stainless steel case with stainless steel screw on back. New brown leather band. It measures 34 mm. across and 42 mm. lug end to lug end. Cir. 1950's. Nice watch. Just discovered that it just keeps winding like a automatic movement so I gave it to my watchmaker who says needs winding parts and I do not have them. It seems to run a long time on a good winding and I am just going to bit the bullet and reduce the price hoping a watch maker will see this and has the time and parts to fix it.. Selling as is and taking a big loss.
In 1879, Nivada started as a small family business, but almost disappeared by the 1990s. During the late 90's Salinas Pliego and its company Grupo Salinas bought the brand from its original owners in Switzerland, the company was reborn and moved to Mexico in 2000. The brand focus now is to sell entry level watches. The brand has since grown to be one of the top watch manufacturers in Mexico and has become internationally recognized in recent years.

Ken Cooper our best but only west coast sales manager has this to say about this fine timepiece
While in the US Army, stationed in Europe, Private Bundy Bunmaster made friends with a local national who taught him the art of timekeeping (repair, selling, & even making custom watches). Soon Bundy was selling all sorts of wrist watches to fellow soldiers by undercutting the PX prices by offering a better selection and no ration restriction for higher end models. Within a year Bundy was fairly well off for a private in the military who never did get promoted. Upon discharge Bundy stayed in contact with his European source for watch parts, broken watches, etc. Soon in the USA Bundy opened up a quality watch repair shop that also sold attractive, well made timepieces at a low price. For customers that wanted something special Bundy could hand make a watch like this very nice Elgin that was made from an older pocket watch. Bundy kept this Elgin in great condition as he learned from it every time he handmade a watch. Business was great until the Quartz revolution stormed into the market place. Bundy's shop suffered greatly & he tried to come up with unique ideas to stay in business. One day while replacing a battery in a quartz watch for a customer he had his idea. He would build a rechargeable watch that never needed battery changes. One late & dark night in his shop, having left his great Elgin conversion watch at home, he attempted to recharge his first rechargeable watch. Plugging it into the wall outlet all appeared well until an electrical short in the watch happened while he was handling it and sadly Bundy was electrocuted. His girl friend, Babs Babler, after receiving all of Bundy's estate sold the near perfect Elgin conversion watch to Girard's Watches where Girard now offers it for sale at a great price. Pocket watch conversions this nice are hard to find especially at this low price. Babs sold Bundy's plans for a rechargeable watch to another fellow who promptly burnt his shop to the ground following Bundy's plans. When purchasing this great manual wind Elgin Conversion timepiece ask about using Girard's unique lay-away-plan.
