Welcome to the About Me page for this Elgin pocket watch website. For me the Elgin pocket watch has always been a thing of beauty for two main reasons. They are steeped in history and they simply look fantastic. I have been fascinated by pocket watches since childhood and I probably got that from my love of old western films and anything that involved railway engines and tracks.
The way those men used to quickly produce a pocket watch from their waistcoat and flicked open the cover was something I always wanted to be able to do. My grandfather also had a pocket watch and he allowed me the pleasure of holding it and watching it for many hours.
I have been a collector ever since and I like all pocket watches though antique ones hold a special fascination. Waltham, Hamilton and Elgin are my favourite types and if I was forced to pick, I would always select Elgin. There is just something about those pocket watches that captures my inner feelings and that is why I have put together this website to share that feeling with other Elgin enthusiasts.
I hope you enjoy the site and find the information here useful and informative. I will always continue to add articles and information to this site on a regular basis, so please check back often and see what is new. The one thing I can not do here is to guess the value of the watch but I have included many articles that will help you date, appraise and lead you towards an evaluation.
