Case: The 10K Yellow Gold Filled Hunters fancily engraved and double hinged gold case measures 47 mm in diameter and is 10 mm thick. The stem and crown is extended 17 mm from the case, and it is located at the 3 o'clock position.

The inside of the front case cover is marked with the serial number 3783816, and the inside of the back case cover is marked Illinois Watch Case Co., Elgin U.S.A., 330, and the number 3783816.
Dial: The mint round porcelain dial has a white color background with script type Roman numerals and features a beautiful example of the antique-style single sunk 60 seconds sub-dials with a gold hand and a 60 seconds scale around its outer edge. The hour markers are script type black colored Roman numerals at all 12 positions. There is a 60 minutes scale at the edge of the dial and it features black colored Arabic numerals at every 5 minute increment (from 5 to 60.)

There are beautiful applied dark and light golden colored engravings around the hour markers. The hour markers themselves are surrounded by circular figures of small intricate dots. There is also a light pinkish pastel texture color background within the fancy engravings. This dial is an absolute "work of art" and as nice as they can possibly get!

The fancy antique-style hour and minutes hands are gold in color. The crystal is flat on the surface and straight at the sides and is raised 1MM above the case. It is marked Elgin below the 12 o'clock position.

Movement: Mechanical Stem Wind and Set with ornate engravings and marked Elgin Nat'l. Watch Co. U.S.A. Safety Pinion and the serial number 21737411 (which dates this watch to 1918.)

Comments: A very nice overall conditioned fancy dial gold filled case from the late 20th century.
