I RESEARCHED IT BY THE SERIAL NUMBER. AN REPUTABLE ELGIN SITE STATES IT WAS MADE IN 1894, HAS 11 JEWELS, SIZE 6S, AND HAS A 3/4 PLATE. IT ALSO GAVE OTHER INFO BUT IT WAS TOO MUCH TO ADD.
PLEASE NOTE: We are not watch experts. This was in my dad's personal belongings. I do not know when/where he acquired it. I do know that it had to be before 1990.
It could have came from his dad, my grandfather, who would have been in his 20's in the late 1800's. WHITE DIAL FACE WITH BLACK HOUR/MINUTE HANDS. FRAMED INSET DIAL DISPLAYS SECONDS. 12 ROMAN NUMERALS FOR HOURS. INCLUDES THE 3 WAY METAL CHAIN THAT WAS WITH THE WATCH WHEN IT WAS DISCOVERED.THE LONGEST STRAND MEASURES ABOUT 9 LONG. GOLD COLOR CHAIN IS STAMPED H.
1.5" DIAMETER BY ABOUT 3/8" DEEP AND 2-1/8 LONG. MISSING GLASS CRYSTAL FACE COVERING. THE KNOB PUSHES IN TO OPEN THE FRONT SPRING HINGED LID.IT ALSO PULLS OUT AND MOVES COUNTERCLOCKWISE TO MOVE THE DIAL HANDS. HOWEVER, IT DOES NOT MOVE CLOCKWISE WHEN PUSHED IN OR PULLED OUT. RESEARCH FOUND SIMILAR ANTIQUE ELGIN WATCHES BUT NOT EXACT. THE EMBOSSED COVERS ARE VICTORIAN STYLE AND THERE'S AN UNIDENTIFIABLE IMAGE IN THE CENTER. IT WAS SUGGESTED BY A FELLOW EBAYER AND EXPERT IN THIS FIELD, THAT THE UNUSUAL EXTERIOR DESIGN AND WITHOUT HAVING HALLMARKS INSIDE THE LID, MAY LEAD ONE TO BELIEVE THAT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A CUSTOM MADE PIECE.
