Folks we are pleased to offer for your consideration this antique Elgin Hunter Case Pocket Watch circa 1833. This is a size 18 and measures 2 1/4  inches in diameter, a hefty pocket watch. These Hunter Case Pocket Watches are getting harder to locate in good condition, the gold and gold fill cases are a soft metal, and most not survived. This 14k Gold Fill Hunter Case is in excellent operating condition yet it does show years of appreciation and the engraving is no longer crisp. This is a wonderful configuration with heavy Box style case, Elgin 11 Jewel Movement, pristine porcelain dial with the popular Roman numerals and highlighted with these ornate heat-treated Blued Steel Hands.

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

This Antique Pocket Watch has been cleaned, oiled and adjusted for accuracy. This entails a complete disassembly and all parts cleaned and reassembled using the finest watch oil and gear grease.

This antique Elgin Pocket Watch is warranted for one full year from the date of purchase.

Description

Folks we are pleased to offer for your consideration this antique Elgin Hunter Case Pocket Watch circa 1833. The Gentlemen’s Dress Pocket Watch of the day was a symbol of prestige and status and manufactured to the highest of standards. This is a size 18 and measures 2 1/4  inches in diameter, a hefty pocket watch. These Hunter Case Pocket Watches are getting harder to locate in good condition, the gold and gold fill cases are a soft metal, and most not survived. This 14k Gold Fill Hunter Case is in excellent operating condition yet it does show years of appreciation and the engraving is no longer crisp. This is a wonderful configuration with heavy Box style case, Elgin 11 Jewel Movement, pristine porcelain dial with the popular Roman numerals and highlighted with these ornate heat-treated Blued Steel Hands. I so hope the many pictures and extreme magnification help in the description of this fine Elgin Pocket Watch.

This Elgin is faced with a beautiful  porcelain dial. This dial has the classic Roman numerals and is in excellent condition and shows beautifully. These fine dials are ornately crafted, and this is a wonderful example. These dials were crafted using two Copper plates soldered together and then baked with many layers of Silica giving that deep glass like finish. This is also why it is so difficult to find these delicate dials in such fine condition. Then around the outer circumference we have the popular “railroad track” design, with a sunken sub-chapter for the second hand. This fine dial is highlighted with the original heat-treated Blued Steel Hands in excellent condition. This classic Elgin Hunter Case Pocket Watch shows beautifully and is sure to be appreciated for generations to come.

This early Elgin has a 11 Jewel Movement, a high jewel count for the day.  This Grade 10 is stem wind and lever set. The movement is referred to as a Full Plate Movement with a Gilt Finish. Then we have a high-grade regulator, gold balance weights, flush pressed gold cup settings, with a gold center wheel and escapement all designed for accuracy and dependability. The fine movement is housed in this original 14K Gold Fill Hunter Case. This is a wonderful “Box style” Hunter Case with the popular coin edge and ornate design at both the top and bottom. This fine antique Elgin Pocket Watch has just been serviced and is an excellent timekeeper.

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

This Antique Elgin Pocket Watch has been cleaned, oiled and adjusted for accuracy. This entails a complete disassembly and all parts cleaned and reassembled using the finest watch oil and gear grease.

This antique Elgin Pocket Watch is warranted for one full year from the date of purchase.
