WNS-PW-6036 - Elgin - 18Sz - 14K Solid Gold Hunter - Full Front View
Case: 18 size Solid 14K Gold big 18 size Hunters Case Pocket Watch with a fine H. H. Taylor 15 jewel lever set. The case is in superb condition considering it is solid 14K gold -- and it is a good thing it has lasted all these years without getting melted down like many have. The case is approximately 50 mm in diameter and is quadruple marked with the number T3632 (on both the front and back cover, the dust cover and the side of the central case.) The 14K mark is found on the dust cover and the back cover which also has the AW CO symbol. The big onion crown is located at the 3 o'clock position. The dust cover has a beautifully engraved dedication from 1886. The central portion of the triple hinged case has a coin cut edge which makes it easy to handle.
Dial: The dial is in great condition with a white background color highlighted with black applied Roman Numeral hour markers and signed Elgin Nat'l Watch Co., it has a large sunken seconds sub-dial with a detailed outer track. The hands are gun metal colored and have a very sleek antique style design.
Movement: H. H. Taylor movement that features a 15 jewel adjusted mechanical wind movement and is a lever set. The movement is marked Elgin Ill., Adjusted, H. H. Taylor, Safety Pinion and the serial number 1781976 (which dates the production of this piece to 1884.)
Comments: Excellent classic watch – circa 1884 Elgin National Watch Company full Hlunters Case Pocket Watch.
