My favorite United States watch firm has always been the Elgin National Watch Company, a prolific American firm established in 1864 on 35 acres of land donated by the City of Chicago in Elgin, Illinois. It was a strategic location, right next to the Galena and Chicago Union Railroad, one of the busiest railways into Chicago. By 1867 the first watch was marketed for sale, retailing for $115 (think of that in today’s dollars) and Elgin was soon competing head-on with its chief competitor, Waltham, which (ironically) was instrumental in forming Elgin, as two of the original organizers were P.S. Bartlett and D.G. Currier of Waltham fame

Vintage watches are generating more interest over the last several years. They are added to collections and are being worn. These vintage watches are a bargain when you consider the cost of producing a comparable watch with a high grade movement. This is a very nice example of a vintage watch which would make a interesting example for any collection or just be fun to wear as your personal timepiece
Vintage watches may gain or lose a small amount of time per day as they do not keep quartz accuracy. Also, because most vintage watches being offered are between 30-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected
