Description

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
I am a watch collector as well as a buyer and seller of new, pre-owned, antique, and vintage watches
We Are U.S.A. Based Sellers
I only sell genuine, authentic, watches in "Good" to "Pristine" condition
We are members of the NAWCC, The National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors, which establishes the standards for ethical conduct for NAWCC member activities related to horology
A careful shopper who takes the time to study the photos, reads the entire description, and asks pertinent questions is our best customer.
Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting. This makes even the slightest imperfections, shadows during photography, and specks of dust appear much more prominent even though they are often not visible without magnification
You will be pleasantly surprised, and receive many compliments, when wearing your watch. There is nothing that draws attention quite like a stunning watch

Note: Because the bezel does not cover much of the dial, the watch plays much larger on the wrist than 34mm
Because older vintage wristwatches were made smaller than watches made today, men or women can wear this and would look fabulous on your wrist
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
A Word About Mechanical Watches: All mechanical watches, whether manual or automatic wind, will need periodic servicing simply due to the friction of its moving parts.
All of our watches have been tested and serviced if needed.
We time all watches for at least 48 hours prior to listing and 12 hours prior to shipment. If it doesn't maintain acceptable accuracy We won't ship it and the buyer will receive a refund

We will gladly accept a return/and or take care of a problem if we make a gross error in the description. If we have made no gross errors, the item is a final sale. This is merely due to the items being antiques, vintage, or pre-owned. Watches are sold as-is, and as described, with no warranty
