Elgin Vintage 1950's Serviced 19 Jewel Manual Wind Movement Mens Watch....32mm

$295.00 USD
My favorite United States watch firm has always been the Elgin National Watch Company, a prolific American firm established in 1864 on 35 acres of land donated by the City of Chicago in Elgin, Illinois. It was a strategic location, right next to the Galena and Chicago Union Railroad, one of the busiest railways into Chicago.  By 1867 the first watch was marketed for sale, retailing for $115 (think of that in today’s dollars) and Elgin was soon competing head-on with its chief competitor, Waltham, which (ironically) was instrumental in forming Elgin, as two of the original organizers were P.S. Bartlett and D.G. Currier of Waltham fame.

Vintage watches are generating more interest over the last several years. The good looking ones are added to collections and are being worn. These vintage watches are a bargain when you consider the cost of producing a comparable watch with a high grade movement. This is a very nice example of a vintage watch which would make a interesting example for any collection or just be fun to wear as your personal timepiece
Because older vintage wristwatches were made smaller than watches made today, men or women can wear this and would look fabulous on your wrist
Vintage watches may gain or lose a small amount of time per day as they do not keep quartz accuracy. Also, because most vintage watches being offered are between 30-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected
A Word About Mechanical Watches:  All mechanical watches, whether manual or automatic wind, will need periodic servicing simply due to the friction of its moving parts. A
ll of our watches have been tested and serviced if needed. 
I time all watches for at least 24 hours prior to listing and 12 hours prior to shipment. If it doesn't maintain acceptable accuracy I won't ship it and the buyer will receive a refund
Water resistance is not guaranteed on vintage or pre-owned wristwatches. Have seals and gaskets checked by a watchmaker before submerging in water, swimming, or showering
It is my hope that all of my items will go to people who will enjoy and appreciate them. I will gladly accept a return/and or take care of a problem if I make a gross error in the description. If I have made no gross errors, the item is a final sale. This is merely due to the items being antiques, vintage, or pre-owned. Watches are sold as-is, and as described, with no warranty
