Showing off this beautiful Elgin just because.
I think she's a perfect example of a middle quality piece that has real class. It's obvious someone took special care of of this one long ago. The CWCCo. case is one of my favorite makes and styles,but the gold trim on the movement always impressed me. It seems unusual but I am not sure.

Really nice looking example
I love those 3 finger bridge and the dial on that one sets it off.

Thanks Geoff-that dial is pretty neat. Do you think the fancy trim is a special order kind of thing?

Marty - not sure of the gold trim being a special order. However I think some of the 17 jewel run had gold train wheel. Does yours?

Sorry for the bad pics-yes,there is a gold center wheel. That's always a sign of higher quality I believe. So far,that gold trim is a mystery...nice though. :)

My old Cooksey.... Complete Guide shows the 17 jewel with gold train as a 3 star watch ( for what their classification is worth).
Might be a keeper Marty

Well,to be fair it doesn't say "5 Pos." only adjusted. I honestly don't know what to think. Maybe it's the 2 star I see above your 3 star entry? In either case she is unusual,and that is what catches my eye.

Just for fun I had a play with your picture. What do you think ?

I think the colour is better but I lost a bit of clarity. Only had a small pic to work with.

Well...I think the lousy quality of the original didn't leave you a lot to work with. :) I thought perhaps some #244's were similar to Lace Doilies. :?

Nice one Marty. You're stepping up. This is one of the nicest ones I've seen.

Rob Carter just serviced an HH Taylor KWKS for me and I'll put it up when it gets in.

For admin.........nothings changed, still an NAWCC member and address is the same. ;)
