Elgin Pocket Watch Project

Recommended Posts

Picked this up yesterday for $30US at an antiques store. Lacking the minutes hand, seconds hand, crystal, and balance jewel screw. The dial is a bit dinged up with a hole, but is original. The kicker is it runs.

I don't have a time grapher yet, but am playing around with an app on my phone that says its rate os within 5 seconds per day, with a bit of jumping around. Dont know the amplitude as the app doesn't provide that. The case has 9 watchmakers marks. I have measured it and it seems to be an 18, with the serial number putting it around 1892.
