This  rare beautiful one owner Elgin Railroad gold plate fine pocket watch has been in my family since it was presented to my Great Great Grandfather upon his retirement from The Illinoise railroad back in 1886.

This amazing family heirloom was just cleaned and seviced by the Montana Watch Co. and has sat unused in our family safe until the passing of my father last year.

On the front it says 'Elgin Natl, Watch Co.'

To change the time you must open the front and slide a hidden lever by the number 5 as well as pull the stem out one position.

Very clean case with minor scratches on the beveled original glass face.

Not sure of the jewell count, stamped case# is 126017 along with a hand engraved date 1887,' Giles anti magnetic ' is factory stamped on the shield as well.


Authentic example of early American watch craftsmanship for any serious collector.



Shipping cost includes insurance.
