Elgin 14K WG 12-Size PW C-1926, Box & Paperwork Item #13205 SOLD
ALMOST 100 YEARS OLD! With original box and paper warranty! AND in solid 14K White Gold!
This C-1926 Elgin is housed in a SOLID 14K WHITE GOLD 12-Size case. It’s signed “Cased and Timed By Elgin National Watch Co, “ and marked 14K on the inside caseback. It’s accented with a very cool Art Deco bow shaped like wings.
The frosted offwhite dial finish is all-original and features high polished silvertone Arabic hour markers. A perfect set of pierced, fancy blued steel hands tops it all off. While the dial finish isn’t perfect, at nearly a century old we think it looks outstanding.
The watch is powered by an American made Elgin movement with 17 jewels, marked “Adjusted”. The movement includes bezel set jewels, a bimetallic balance wheel, and a micrometer regulator. A wonderful piece of American ingenuity!
Completing the package is the watch’s ORIGINAL watch box, along with its ORIGINAL Elgin guarantee paper with matching serial number written in by hand. At the end of the care instructions, it’s even signed “Your Elgin”. Amazing that it’s survived all these years!
The watch has just been correctly serviced. During service, the movement was completely disassembled and cleaned. During reassembly, the movement was properly lubricated. As part of the service, the case was completely disassembled and lightly refinished before being ultrasonically cleaned. It’s looking sharp and running strong, keeping very good time. A wonderful addition to any collection!
