    1922 LADY ELGIN WATCH WITH STAR CASE CO. 19 1/2 KT CASE? QUESTIONS???

    HELLO,
    I RECENTLY GOT THIS WATCH FROM A FAMILY MEMBER. FROM WHAT I CAN TELL IT'S A LADY ELGIN FROM 1922. THE CASE IS FROM STAR WATCH CASE CO. AND SAYS "19 1/2 KT". I HAVE DONE A LOT OF SEARCHING (GOOGLING) AND CAN'T FIND ANYTHING LIKE THE CASE THIS WATCH HAS, NOTHING ABOUT THE "19 1/2 KT". CAN'T FIND ANOTHER ONE- OF COURSE I'M A NEWBIE AND MAY NOT BE LOOKING IN THE RIGHT PLACE.
    DOES THE "19 1/2 KT" MEAN THE CASE IS MADE OF WHITE GOLD OR PLATINUM- OR AM I TOTALLY WRONG.???
    ANY INFO ON THIS WATCH AND IT'S CASE WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! THANKS AGAIN AND HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!

    You can search the movement number here
    Elgin Watches Serial Numbers | Elgin National Watch Company Serial Number, Elgin pocket watch

    Not sure what the 19 1/2 K means unless it should have been 18K but when the case company tested them, it came out to the 19 1/2 so they had to stamp it that way.
    Others here with more knowledge should know.
    Nice looking Elgin though.
    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
