Sold Extra Fine Antique Elgin Pocket Watch Housed in this Classic Hunter Case The Gentlemen’s Dress Pocket Watch of the Day circa 1891

Quick Overview

Folks we have a fine offering for your consideration in this Elgin Hunter Case Pocket Watch Grade 102 circa 1891. This classic Elgin is a size 18 and measures 2 ¼ inches in diameter, a substantial pocket watch. This Gentlemen’s Dress Pocket Watch of the day was a symbol of prestige and status and manufactured to the highest of standards, we have an excellent example with this fine configuration. The pristine Elgin 11 Jewel Movement, 14K Gold Fill Hunter Case, classic Roman Numeral Dial highlighted with the original Blued Steel Hands, all in excellent condition.

This pristine Elgin Grade 102 Model 3 Class 5 Movement is Lever Set and Stem Wound. This is referred to as a Full Plate Half Nickel Movement and is a Size 18. This fine movement is designed with 11 Ruby Jewels, a high jewel count for the day. We also have a High-grade Micrometer Regulator, Gold Balance Weights with Flush and Screw Jewel Settings. We also have a Quick Train Movement with a Safety Pinion all designed for added accuracy. This Elgin Grade 102 has just been serviced and is an excellent timekeeper as designed. This fine Elgin Grade 102 Movement is housed in this classic B&B Royal 20 Year Gold Fill Hunter Case. This case is in excellent condition with the engraving still very crisp and no personal monograms. This fine Elgin Pocket Watch would make an excellent addition to any collection or maybe an Elgin Pocket Watch for daily ware?

This antique Elgin Dial is referred to as a Porcelain Single Sunk Dial. This single sunk dial has the antique Elgin logo with classic Roman Numerals and the classic Railroad Track design around the outer circumference. Then we have a sunken sub register for the second hand. This dial does have minor crazing, not significant for a pocket watch of this age, though I have to mention. These fine dials are made using many layers of baked Silica giving the dials that deep rich Porcelain finish. This fine dial is highlighted the original delicate and beautifully Blued Steel Spade Hands. This classic Elgin Pocket Watch shows beautifully and is sure to be appreciated for generations to come.

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.
