    We're not permitted to give values here.

    That said, the watch you have is on the lower end of Elgin's production for the time period, which will tend to keep the value fairly low. When buyer's see a missing bow as yours has, they tend to question the overall condition of the watch, and this too will hold the price down(although the bow itself is easy to replace).

    Thanks Ben , I wasn't aware that giving values was not allowed... all apologies. I have looked up the serial # & know that is is from 1911. Thank you for the information, I think i will try to find a local jeweler & get it appraised.
