Just wanted to quickly introduce myself.
I'm usually over at the G Shock or Suunto forum.
Most of my collection consists of wrist watches but I do have a pocket watch that I picked up 30 years ago at a flee market.
I spent 10$ plus another 20$ to replace a bushing to get it running.
I wear it rarely and it spends most of it's time on display on my night stand but it keeps good time. It's an Elgin and based on it's serial number I know that it was made in 1921 with a 7 Jewel Grade 303 movement. From what I understand this also happens to be the most prolific movement that Elgin made.
I'm not really concerned about value. I've had it so long it's more sentimental than anything.
Lately I've been kind of interested in wearing a pocket watch more often, does anyone here have experience with this model Elgin? Or should I pick up something a little newer?
