This is a very beautiful and unique Lord Elgin dress watch.  The case itself is marked "14K" and has some nice hinged lugs.  The watch is running and keeping time, but it does need service.

As I try to say over and over in my auctions...These watches have been in an estate for some time.  They need service!!

My editorial:

As with all of these watches I am listing, I really suggest a full cleaning and oiling to get it back into running condition.     When I say “they run”, it means the watch will wind and they do keep time for the few minutes I watch them.  It does not mean I guarantee it nor does it mean I oiled them.  

I am a hobbyist watchmaker and have not done any work to this watch.  Just giving you my judgement/opinion as to the condition of this item.


I will ship domestically normally via USPS priority mail.  Domestic standard charge for shipping and handling will be $7.00 for this lot.  International shipping will be flat rate of $20 and will be USPS International .


Please take the time study every photo closely as this is an old watch and the photos are part of the description, I DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS.  

I have spent a lot of time with the description and have described the watch to the best of my knowledge honestly and close up photos to capture the details for you, no funny lighting, just high quality shots to show any and every possible detail for sale, please ask any questions BEFORE bidding,  I do not offer warranty or any guarantees on the watches are they are used vintage watches. 

Please ensure your paypal is set up as I require payment within 3 working days. I will only send to the address registered on the Paypal payment form, good luck and happy bidding!

Sellers Note:

I will be listing a large number of vintage wristwatches and pocket watches in the coming weeks!  Check back often for the latest auctions.
