They owed much of its funding to a former Chicago Mayor called Benjamin W. The very first pocket watch they produced was a classic size 18.

Like many that were to follow this pocket watch was known for a high degree of time keeping accuracy and for its unique and wonderful style.

Although it is always sad to see the demise of any business, it does mean that you actually own an antique Elgin and one that will over time only ever increase in value. The average pocket watch in these recessional times has dropped in value from a few years ago.

For me the Elgin pocket watch and pendant watch offer a great contrast in style.

I am mainly interested in these watches as they have a sense of history to me.

The really good news is that Elgin has now ceased trading as a company.

That means none of these watches will ever be made again.

They stopped making their watches then and moved on to do bigger and heavier engineering construction tasks.

For me that is a huge loss but I guess time simply moves on, even for a watch.

However during recessions or as supply gets too big then the value will drop slightly.

Yet again the good news is that it will come up again. That means there is usually a steady enough demand and they are looking for the unique piece rather than a huge profit.
