Discover your vintage watch along with this gent’s ELGIN timepiece dating to 1893. This NOBLE DESIGN WATCH features ORIGINAL porcelain DIAL designed by the artist handcrafted, GOLD PLATED CASE and original pocket watch mechanism with BLUE STEEL SCREWS, MASSIVE BARREL PLATE (3/4), CHATON of REGULATION SCREWS in GOLD, BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING and is suitable for men and women.

 

This timepiece features an ORIGINAL handsome sunken PORCELAIN dial is in good condition and designed by the artist handcrafted of THE WANDOLEC ART STUDIO specially for this excellent watch. It features a 60 minute checkered outer track border, black main Roman numerals, original blue steel Spade-style hands and sunken sub-second dial with “sweep” original blue steel seconds hand and 60 second outer chapter. Signed ELGIN in black enamel lettering below the XII.

 

It is a registered design model that features a MIDDLE SIZE three piece GOLD PLATED CASE that provides with glass cover of back lid. This watch was converted from pocket watch. The case, new custom made, fantastic, build specially for this excellent ELGIN movement. The lugs are in great condition while the winding crown is in very good shape and operates properly. The case has MINERAL glasses on the front and back side. The MIDDLE SIZE case of watch is suitable for men and women.

 

 

Peeking inside via the glass lid I find a clean, high-grade manual wind gold-plated lever escapement mechanism with BLUE STEEL SCREWS, MASSIVE BARREL PLATE (3/4), CHATON of REGULATION SCREWS in RED GOLD, BI-METALLIC MICROMETER REGULATOR & BLUE BREGUET BALANCE SPRING.

3/4 Plates were commonly used when manufacturing movement sizes 16s and smaller, offering the ability to produce a watch much thinner when compared to a full plate watch. The balance cock and the top plate were adjacent and flush, requiring a cutout in the top plate of the movement. Many times, the 3/4 plate is split into two parts.

 

Identification: The top plate has about 1/4 cut around the balance, which is flush with the top plate.

 

There is signed ELGIN NATL WATCH Co – SAFETY PINION. Also is signed the movement serial number #4.932.730. This serial number dates this watch to 1893 as per published production numbers. The movement has #6S size and #118 Caliber.

 

This beautiful wristwatch has the ORIGINAL ELGIN WATCH Co movement in an excellent status which was very well saved, considering age of this watch. Mechanism has been recently serviced to ensure it winds and sets smoothly while keeping great, accurate time.

 

 

This is a “NAIL SET” watch so you don’t pull the crown out to set the time. Instead, you press the little button near the crown IN and then move the crown to set the hands, releasing the button once you’re finished. It’s easy, so don’t worry about getting the hang of it!

 

It comes complete with a new 20mm black alligator style high quality genuine leather strap with matching gold steel buckle for a most excellent look.

Diameter (with crown):      45.00 mm
Diameter (without crown): 39.00 mm
Watch crystal diameter:    33.00 mm
Thickness:                        13.00 mm

 

This cleaned, oiled and regulated antique watch winds and sets very smoothly while keeping very good, accurate time.

Because of the vintage nature of the watch I cannot guarantee its absolute time keeping accuracy even if they are in good running condition and in some rare occasions may require additional adjustment.
