Elgin Spare Parts and Servicing Tips

This has been extracted from a huge PDF.
It is quite interesting reading, even for someone who has never stripped down a watch.

I do hope that it is of some help, in tracking down that elusive part.

Enjoy.

Incoming late 30s early 40s

Bottom feeding wins again. :D A nice clean looking example. The seller had it at collection only and most people would not look any further, but if they had they would have seen that the seller would post. Bagged it for a song and cannot wait for it to arrive. Am I right in my dating? Will post more...

Re: Ladies Elgin 50's early 60's

Thank you Magpie I guess I have now got to look out for the king of the sea. I managed to pop open the case did not have a razor blade but I do have feeler gauges which worked after a while. Very green inside so it needs a good service. The Sea Maid is running a swiss 879 17 Jewel movement and the m...

Ladies Elgin 50's early 60's

I purchased this from Ebay for a song. I think its from late 50's or early 60's. It measures 20 mm not including the crown and 28 tip to tip of the lugs.
