FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) About Elgin Vintage Watches

How much is a Elgin worth?

Depending on the material the watch is made of, as well as the year of production and the significance of the particular model, prices for a railroad pocket watch generally tend to range from anywhere from $200 to $5,000. It's worth noting here that only about 10% of cases ever sold were solid gold.

How do I date my vintage Elgin watch?

Movement serial numbers provide useful insight in the manufacturing date of the movement. This is possible because Elgin watch movements were numbered sequentially.

How can I tell if my Elgin watch is real?

To identify an Elgin wristwatch, examine the dial. Until 1960, all timepieces produced by the American watchmaker showed the "Elgin" name on the dial. After the 1960s, the dials typically displayed an "E" to signify the maker. You can also check the stamp on the back of the case.

Is Elgin a expensive watch?

Their cost rarely exceeds a few hundred dollars, although some of its rarer gold-cased and railroad watches can reach four figures. At their best, high-end Elgins were exquisitely made, but it's the workhorse models that are often more appealing. Your grandpa and mine might well have owned one.

Are Elgin watches made of gold?

Whether or not Elgin watches are gold depends on the timepiece in question. The watchmaker did produce pocket watches and wristwatches out of 10-karat, 14-karat and 18-karat gold, but some timepieces are just goldtone metal.

Are Elgin watches still being made?

The company discontinued all US manufacturing in 1968 and sold the rights to the name "Elgin", which were subsequently resold multiple times over the years. The rights eventually were purchased by MZ Berger Inc., which manufactures its watches in China and distributes them outside traditional watch dealerships.

Where is the serial number on an Elgin watch?

On your pocket watch you should see two serial numbers, one on the case and one on the inner movement of the antique watch. To determine the year that your Elgin pocket watch was made you need to look only at the serial number on the inner movement. Once you have found that number write it down carefully.
