***Elgin’s finest movement!
This Railroad-grade movement is an earlier version of the Veritas, C-1908. It features 21 jewels, rose gold jewel settings, and rose gold timing screws. It has beautiful damasking on the plates and features a very nice 3 finger bridge. The gold filled case shows some wear, but is in good condition overall. It also features a screw-on caseback and bezel. The watch comes with a perfect railroad dial with matching blue steel hand set.
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.
