Help, "Lady Elgin" Wadsworth Pilot, can you ID?

#1 Post by Hoolt50 » Mon Apr 09, 2018 3:38 pm

Is this all age matched?

Looks old, s/n 24539589, but don't see any other identifying marks. Can anyone ID for age & worth?

Serial number dates to circa 1922. "Pilot" means gold filled. Non-working, realistically, probably about $25. If running and keeping time, maybe $50 to $75.

Thanks for info. Not to sound too dumb, but are the scribes on the inside service indicators, or something else?

You are correct, service markings. And there's no universal code, so only the watchmaker who put them there could say what they mean.
