    What kind of watch is this?!

    Hey guys,

    So my dad wants to sell one of his watches that he left in my possession. The only problem is that we have no idea what kind of watch it is. We know it's Elgin, but that's about it. It works really well, it's a wind up watch, with a really smooth second hand. Crystal is in pretty good condition, same with the case back. If you guys have any idea, any information, let me know. Unfortunately this is my first post so it won't let me put pictures up on the post.

    Thanks gents,
    Jimmy

    With no useful information or pic use a good search engine and do an image search for Vintage Elgin Wristwatch and see what comes up.

    Good luck.

    I can't link anything apparently, unless I have more than a few posts

    Ok. Update on the watch to anyone that is interested. My dad took it to get serviced, and apparently it has a Valjoux 7734 movement. Again, I would post a link but I'm many posts away before I'm allowed to attach a link.
