I went to pick up my first Elgin today, from my watchmaker.
Wow, he did a nice job.
The brassed, gold-filled case has been polished, the dial has been cleaned and most importantly...the crystal has been replaced!
It's a 16-size pocket watch with 15 jewels, made in 1918. I guess that would make it a wartime watch. It's got a plain, but easily-read dial with a couple of (barely noticeable) chips, but otherwise it's wonderful.
The movement reads:
