Sold Antique Elgin Pocket Watch The Gentlemen’s Dress Pocket Watch Faced with a Beautiful Patina Dress Dial circa 1923

Quick Overview

We are pleased to offer for your consideration this classic Elgin Pocket Watch circa 1923. The Gentlemen’s Dress Pocket Watch Pocket of the day was manufactured to the highest of standards. This dress dial does have heavy patina and I think it gives the pocket watch real character. The hands are blued steel and show beautifully against the White Gold Fill case and the patina on the dial. The Elgin Dress Pocket Watch Grade 345 is a wonderful configuration with the Elgin Grade 345 Movement, heavy and evenly patina dial, blued steel hands and housed in this beautifully engraved Wadsworth Gold Fill Case. This all-original Elgin Pocket Watch is truly a unique find, the Rat Rod of Pocket Watches so to speak.


This is another excellent example of the late 19th early 20th Century ingenuity that made the American Pocket Watch a worldwide standard for accuracy and beauty in timekeeping.


All Antique and Vintage Pocket Watches are cleaned, oiled and adjusted for accuracy and warranted for one full year from the date of purchase.
