This watch is in a very good working condition however I think I have to fix the narrow opening on back side of the case. (see the picture) I am thinking to use a clear liquid sealant! What are your opinions? Quick fix ideas?
I have seen watches with holes like that 'fixed' with solder.
Epoxy? Probably longer lasting than a rubbery sealant. Whatever you do, you'll want to make sure it's completely cured before putting the movement back in since some curing sealants/glues give off fumes that might not be friendly to watches.
I agree it's worth saving. A nice looking piece and one of the early 8/0 Elgin movements.
