The Elgin FG1016A is a rectangular timepiece that presents a very opulent look, brought about by the 293 crystals that are used in its design.

Nevertheless, this does not diminish the luxurious feel of the watch at all since the Roman quarter hour marks are marked with crystals, while the hands are in gold tone. The bezel is also elaborately adorned, with crystals that appear to be extensions of the hour marks on the dial. This timepiece makes use of a Japanese movement to keep track of time.

Like the previously described timepiece, the FG9051K is also crystal-embellished.
The brilliant stones are embedded in a cross pattern on every link of the gold tone metal bracelet. An identical pattern can also be seen in the middle of the sunray dial that exhibits the luminous hour and minute hands in gold tone and the second hand in black.
Duplicating this gold-black color combination are the hour indicators on the right side of the white dial, with the Arabic numbers and stick marks outlined in gold and filled in black. The bezel that surrounds the dial is also studded with crystals, adding to the luster of the watch face.

The round-shaped timepiece has a gold tone metal case that houses a uniquely constructed watch face.
The dial is black, accented in gold and silver tones, and shows a vertical line pattern on its surface. Unlike most timepieces where the analog display occupies the entire dial, the FG8080’s hands and hour marks are contained in a sub-dial situated at the 12 o’clock position.
On the opposite end, at the 6 o’clock position, is another sub-dial that indicates the seconds. Directly above it are circular apertures that serve as skeleton dials, revealing the inner workings of the watch. Another interesting detail of this watch is the location of the gold tone fluted crown, which is situated off-center instead of the more common 3 o’clock position.
The movement used by this timepiece is Japanese and it is water resistant up to a depth of 10 meters.
