Here we have a Railroad-Grade Elgin Veritas from the early 1920’s. The 16-size open face case is 10k gold filled and Elgin signed. It does show some wear including some small dings on the caseback, but looks very good for close to 100 years old. The double sunk railroad dial looks great with original blued steel hands in excellent condition. The watch features a beautiful high grade Veritas movement with 23 jewels with rose gold accents, and marked adjusted to 5 positions.
The price includes full restoration and repair. The work will be performed after purchase. This entails proper service of the movement, a new mainspring, and anything else that would be necessary to bring the watch into proper working order.
Once you’ve made your purchase, please contact us so we may discuss the restoration.
Please allow 1-2 weeks after purchase for service to be completed.
Our goal is to achieve what we refer to as “Sympathetic Restoration”; in other words, bringing the watch back as close as possible to its original appearance without the need to remove all signs of its former life. We don’t want to dramatically change its history.
During the restoration, we only use we only use period-correct parts, and in most cases, genuine factory parts from the same time period as the watch.
