  1. Vintage & Pocket watches
    First time posting on the forum. I've only been collecting for a year or so. My grandfather gave me this Elgin watch years ago. With the new intrest in watches I dug it out. I was wondering if anyone here can tell me what model it is and what it might cost to have it serviced. Any...
  2. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi all - I’m new here, so please excuse any etiquette or rules I may be unknowingly breaking. I have a 1870 Elgin gold pocket watch (I do not believe it is working) that belonged to my grandfather and would appreciate your thoughts. Unfortunately I do not live in a city with any companies that...

    Hello, I'm very new to the world of clock & pocket watch collecting/repair and would like to know what I'm seeing here by the lever. It's from an 1891 Elgin pocket watch. Enclosed is a photo with the part in question circled. Does it look like all the parts in this area are present? If so, what...
  4. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I'm considering to buy this very nice vintage Elgin and was wondering can the dial be cleaned? I don't want to get rid of the patina but the dark spots bother me. Also, does the dial look original to you?

    Hi guys, I have an Elgin 626 movement with a broken balance... I have been searching for a cheap replacement but not too successful. My question is if other movements close to the 626 would have interchangeable balances? The 559 movement seems almost identical to the 626... Any advice or...

    Stainless Elgin "Galaxie". Approx. 34mm diameter, 40mm lug-to-lug, 10mm thick. Case is in good condition for its age with hairline scratches but crystal is a bit "wavy" due to buffing to remove scratches. Runs but needs attention due to issue with mainspring, which has become detached from arbor...

  8. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Here I have something I've never quite seen before. A run of the mill 1912 Elgin grade 298 lever set movement, but with this dial and hand set? In this Illinois watch case company conversion case? I've heard of more modern conversions but did not know they did them that long ago as well. I think...

    Elgin Direct Reading Jump Hour - Disc Removal Tool Does anyone have any information that would help me identify and source one of these tools, i.e. Elgin's description, part number, etc.. I've spent hours chasing leads with one description or the other, to no avail. Possibly if I had a more...
  12. Vintage & Pocket watches
    I haven't found out much about this watch other than it appears to have been made in 1880. I have no illusions that it's worth much to anyone else, not that I would ever consider selling it anyway. Perhaps someone can tell me more about it or finds it interesting.

    This is a 1956 Lord Elgin Millbrook, 14K GF bezel and case back. Just serviced and running well. New crystal, new black lizard strap. Gently hand polished. The dial is original and somewhat marked. Potentially a candidate for a refinish, but I will leave that up to the new owner. I...

    Working on a 15/0 Elgin, Gr 673. Beautiful movement with a free running train and an balance that swings FOREVER after a puff. Problem: Pallet fork is difficult to seat and when I think I have it seated, it is very sluggish. It doesn't flick from post to post. I have examined the jewels...

    Rose Gold Elgin driver, 14K RG. This one is less than perfect cosmetically with some "burn-thru" on the case back and lugs. Though not a total loss. Serviced and regulated, running well and accurately. Beautiful "rose-ish", coppery dial that with minimal patina that the pictures really do...

  19. Vintage & Pocket watches
    Hi! A couple months ago I fell in love with the craftsmanship and history (and everything else) of American pocket watches. I quickly bought a beautiful 15j Illinois 16s, with slight damaskeening on the mainspring barrel and nice stripes everywhere else (grade 173). The watch is working great...
