    ? QUESTION ? on ELGIN 6s 1878 watch CASE/DIAL style

    Here is an Elgin size 6 from 1878 that is in nearly mint condition. My question is regarding the case and dial style which I have not seen on an elgin or waltham from just about any timeframe. Given that movement's were often sold separate from the case, is this an exception in that the dial on this "demi"? hunter style is obviously made for the case. Anyone familiar?

    Movements were often sold separate from the case. But they were often sold with a case too. This beauty must be one of the latter. Nice!

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
