Other Vintage Men's Elgin Pocket Watches
In this section, you will find a nice selection of vintage gold, hunting case and dress-sized Elgin (or the earlier National Watch Co.) pocket watches that are typically considered gent's size, although in many cases would also be appropriate for a woman to carry. The Elgin watch company, out of Elgin, Illinois, was in business from 1864-1964, and while active, was the largest-producing American watch company, manufacturing an estimated half of all pocket watches ("dollar" watches not included).
As an additional resource, we've posted a Serial Number Production List which includes information for Elgin serial numbers and dates of manufacture.
