We have added a new page for instagram feeds and will be adding more over time, if you post on instagram and would like to have your Elgins displayed on the site, let me know your instagram account or tags and I’ll add them to the feeds. We have also added a links page, if you would like to have a link posted on it, get to touch.
Introducing the Elgin Model Catalog, Your one stop for identifying that Elgin of yours.
We are initially focused on wristwatches and if we ever run out of them, we will move onto pocket watches, (this doesn’t mean you wont find them listed already). We are including all elgin products (lighters, cufflinks, wrist watches, travel clocks, etc). We will also list products for all genders (really apart from the 50 Millionth Anniversary Elgin and the Hulburd pocket watch line, the ladies left the mens line in the dust when it came to pricing).
You can find it on the menu or just go here Elgin Model Catalog
We will be continually adding information and will soon introduce the ability for users to submit entries and also have an area for you to upload images of watches to be identified.
Grade list has been corrected and six additional grades have been added.
it will now be date stamped so you know when its updated.
I’ve added the first real resource for watch collectors on the site, the movement grade list.
Elgin Movement Grade List or off the menu above.
This list has been created from Elgin’s Service Bulletins and exisiting serial number lookup databases, I will not be creating another serial number lookup as there are numerous sites already.
Jeff Sexton’s site at elgintime.com – Jeff has been updating his database over time and has also started to include wristwatch grades into his database, so I consider it the more accurate database on the net currently and it can only get better with time.
Wayne Schlitt’s site at elginwatches.org – This is the oldest database online but I’m unsure if it has been updated with recent knowledge.
