    Question Help me with identifying this Elgin Pocket Watch!

    I've tried to track down any info about this watch and keep coming up empty handed! It doesn't have a movement serial number like everything tells me it should. I'm stumped. Any help would be appreciated!

    Hi there,

    the original Elgin Watch Co. went out of business in the mid 60s. But the brand survived under several owners, and one of them was responsible for this watch. The movement is a Swiss Unitas 6498 with the decoration style used since the 70s:
