Antique American Elgin BW Raymond White Gold-Filled Railroad Pocket Watch USA 1926
An antique American Elgin white gold-filled railroad open face pocket watch, made in the USA in 1926.
Dial: The white enamel dial has black Arabic numerals with outer minute divisions and outer 1-60-minute numbers. The dial has blued hands and a subsidiary second’s dial at the six. The dial is signed in the upper centre: “Elgin”.
Movement: The anchor lever movement has 21 jewels with a high regulator. The movement is signed: “BW Raymond, 21 Jewels, adjusted 5 Positions” and numbered: 29366444. As this pocket watch has a very high movement and is fully screwed, a watchmaker can make this pocket watch to work with full accuracy! Now the movement is in great working condition; however, we cannot guarantee accuracy for an antique pocket watch.
Case: The watch lies in a white gold-filled open face case with screw case both back and front with a smooth finish. The inner side of the case is signed: “Star Watch Case Co, 10Kt Gold Filled” and numbered: 9620998.
Diameter: 50 mm - Weight: 96.1 gr
Signed: Elgin - Made in USA - 1926
Please note: to set the time of watch you need to open the front screw back case and pull out the lever at the one/two and turn the winder to set the correct time. This method was done specially for the guards travelling on a train for the safety of the people, so that they could keep exactly the accurate time.
Never pull on the winder as this can break the watch!
