Product Description

This watch is fitted with one of the best chronograph movements of all times: calibre 40-68 by Excelsior Park with a low-mass Glucydur balance makes the timepiece one of the most accurate chronographs for professionals in the 20th century.
The name ELKA is made up from the first letters of the names Louis (phonetic sound EL), Kiek and Amsterdam. Louis Eduard Kiek (1883-1974) was a Dutch maker and the founder of the ELKA company. He and his family survived the Nazi terror of World War II; in 1974 his son Ernst Louis Kiek took over the company and continued the business until the year 2000.
ELKA Watch in Amsterdam was one of the first authorised Rolex concessionaires in the Netherlands. They also sold other brands such as Ulysse Nardin, Vulcain, Breitling, Universal, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Blancpain as well as clocks and watches of their own ELKA brand.
