Elgin Gentlemen’s Dress Pocket Watch – Cased in Sterling Silver and Faced with this Stunning Dress Dial

Back in the day, the Elgin Watch Company produced pocket watches for a variety of buyers. For customers who found railroad pocket watches too austere, Elgin added style to the dial and offered distinctive cases. This Model 5 is an excellent example of the breed.

Made in 1905, its flawless porcelain dial features the distinctive “upside down 9” with an outer ring of multi-colored, hand-painted leaves. The original spade hands intersect the encircled indices, enhancing Elgin’s legendary legibility.

The stunning Grade 148 movement boasts elegant damascening accentuated by the company’s elaborate typeface. Fully serviced, the Elgin just as accurate and reliable as the day it left the world’s largest watch factory.

Fashioned from the finest sterling silver, the case wraps around the dial, making this fancy Model 5 an absolute joy to hold. Will it be your hands cradling this example of American high horology? It should be.
