I'm just starting out with collecting vintage watches, I just bought an Elgin watch off eBay today and I wanted to see if any members could give me a little more information about it and whether or not they think I got ripped off.. I paid $36.00
I figured given the condition and date (1938) it seemed like a pretty good deal to me. I was able to look up the serial number and got the following information
37932245 37923001 16000 1938 524* 8/0s h3f1p 17j
I've included pictures below.
Just wondering what others thought and if they have any gems of
advice for someone just starting out in the world of vintage watch
Thanks for the help, I appreciate it.
