ELGIN POCKET WATCHES

Elgin watches have always been known for fine quality watches at very reasonable prices.  This is true today as Elgin produced vast numbers of watches in all types of grades.  Good examples are getting very hard to locate.  Here are some interesting factory advertisements.

This is a very typical Elgin Father Time advertisement.  These are getting harder to locate in good condition.  A statue of Father Time stood atop the Elgin factory.
