Elgin Railroad Pocket Watch cal. 572 19 Jewel Size 16s ca. 1947-1948
Here is a great post WWII Elgin railroad pocket watch using the uncatalogued cal. 572; a 16s 19 jeweled movement with railroad watch specifications. This particular Elgin movement was not catalogued by serial number like most all other movements. However, it has been documented to have been in production from1947 through 1948. The case is a classic Elgin design in yellow gold fill; the dial in a very attractive white porcelain, single sunk dial with black arabic numerals. The watch is working great and keeping good time, we serviced this watch July 2019. This is a great watch that will last many lifetimes when properly cared for. It would make a perfect gift or addition to an important collection.
