Elgin Crusader

I picked this one up and I think it came out really nice. The Elgin Crusader in solid 14kt gold with the G M Wheeler movement. I serviced it and didn’t have to replace anything. It’s running impressively on the timer. Polished up nice to. 100212D3-CF2F-4E30-A83C-5EEF6D35E87C.jpeg 98625512-959A-4D11-...

Re: Article about Gruen owned by Billie Holiday

Sorry for the poor quick phone picture but those Gruens make my platinum and diamond Elgin look like it was made for a poor person.....

Re: Unexpected Find - Oversized Cal 283.

I love when that happens! Nice!
Usually a pile of junkers truly is a pile of junkers.
I found a solid gold longines in a junk pile once. Most junk piles are just parts.
Cool find. Post a pic when you finish it up.

Re: Elgin B W Raymond RR Grade 571 21j Pocket Watch from 1927.

I have a few Raymond Pocket Watches. Not as many as Doug. Yet...lol I am almost done a 571. While the engraving on the plates is more blocky and less attractive than its predecessors it is the most advanced version of the Elgin rail road Pocket Watches with 9 adjustments. Yes 9. Heat Cold Isochronis...

Re: The Elgin-Centura Line - The 100th Anniversary Line

I would like to find this at a local market! The history on the Elgin Centura line is still a bit fuzzy. From what I found all were solid gold. I would take that with a grain of salt as here is another gold filled example. I have not seen this one before so I don’t know if it’s a factory model or so...
