    My new collection

    Not exactly new to the watch game my father reapirs antique watches and clocks as a hobby and does some work on the side for other collectors so I have been around them all my life but I came into some extra cash through a lucky auction purchase and sale so I thought I would start my own collection. And here it is what I bought saturday afternoon.

    1919 Elgin 16s 17j bb royal ygf,
    1891 Elgin 18s 15j 20yr Philadelphia case,
    16s Elgin 15j Swing out silveroid case,
    1920 Elgin 12s 15j scepter ygf 10yr case,
    1950 Elgin 16s 15j in keystone stainless steel case,
    Progress in philadelphia victory case,
    Buren 16s 17j Rambler 10yr case,
    1886 Elgin 18s 7 j in 14k boss 25 yr case,
    1901 Elgin 18s 17j in ygf case,-
    1893 Elgin 16s 11j in 14k Deubuer 20 yr,
    1889 Elgin 18s 15j Fayhs 20yr ygf,
    1925 Elgin 16s 7j gold face ygf scepter case,
    12s Elgin 125 keystone j boss 25 yr,
    1920 Elgin 12s 7j 14k star 20 yr case,
    1947 Elgin 16s 15j star stainless steel case,
    1898 Elgin 18s 7j 10 yr ygf Philadelphia case,
    1889 Elgin 18s 15j keystone extra,
    1893 17s 15j Fahys ygf case,
