New to the forum and wondering if the kind folks here could confirm that my grandfather's old pocket watch in indeed a 1920 Elgin, as I think it is based on my searches online. The serial number on the movement reads 23066976. Was there only one style each year? Are the hands likely to be original? Very few of the images I have searched online show this era Elgin with gold coloured hands, which makes me curious. Is that gold on the inside of the casing?
I think it was probably his university graduation present from that same year. My father used to tell stories about playing with it as a young boy in the 30's when it no longer worked. My father had a German watchmaker repair it in the 80's and it still keeps time.
