Now that I've finished a couple of other projects, I can start on this nice little Elgin 12S pocket watch dating from 1921. Checking the serial number we can get something almost as interesting as an Omega "Extract of the Archives". Production Year : 1921 Size : 12s Jewels : 15 jewels Grade : 314 Model : 2 Class : 113 Run Quantity : 2000 Production Dates : 1903 to 1927 Total Grade Production : 323000 Movement Configuration : Hunter Case Movement Setting : Pendant Wind and Set Movement Finish : Nickel Damaskeening Plate : 3/4 Plate Barrel : Going Barrel Adjusted : No The case is in good nick for its age so the promise of 20 years Warranty by the case maker (Bates and Bacon of Attleboro, Massachusetts) has well and truly been met. Like many watches from this era, the enamel dial shows no signs of age as later painted/varnished dials do. The movement is fairly standard for an American watch of this era. The regulator is to me, particularly attractive and allows very fine micrometer like adjustment. So there we have it. Next steps are to start disassembly (no timing checks, it just doesn't run).
