Hello all, I have several older Elgin pocket watch movements and am looking for a case for them. This may be a dumb question, but will any 40mm case do, as long as the stem is in the right position? Thanks.
I see, thanks for the info. I've been looking for 12s cases, but came across some marked as 40mm instead. I figured they "should" work, as the 12s is just slightly smaller, but didn't want to assume. I've learned that assuming can be costly in the watch world.
Like I said - the standard 12s model (pillar plate only slightly wider than the top plates) will fit standard 12s cases (plenty available). The rest need special cases. I'd not buy a '40mm" case, I'd buy a 12s case
