    Re: Elgin National Coin Silver Pocket Watch

    Hello and welcome to WUS!
    Congratulations on uploading pictures for your first post, and quality ones too. That always helps us.
    What you have is a very simple, and average pocket watch, but there's nothing wrong with that. It is from 1885 and the movement has 7 jewels and is a size 18s. There were 277k others just like it made. Overall it looks to be in good shape and should be fun to own. If you intend to use it, I would highly recommend that you have it serviced by somebody that works on watches and pocket watches for a living and not the family jeweler. Enjoy!

    "A watch is ruined, not by time, but by bad handling. To run well it should be wound regularly, cleaned yearly, and, if injured, taken to a competent, practical man. A ​Waltham watch properly cared for will last a lifetime." -American Waltham Watch Co. Catalog (c) 1900
    “When your watch gets out of order you have a choice of two things to do: throw it in the fire or take it to the watch-tinker. The former is the quickest.” -Mark Twain
