SOURCE: How to repair antique Elgin Pocket Watches i want a manual

  1. Stay away from interfering with your watch. This is a job for the expert, that has the knowledge, the tools and years of experience behind him. Buy an old 'banger' of a watch for a few dollars and mess about with it. Dismantle a portion of it and then see if you can reassemble it wiyhout doing damage.

SOURCE: opening an elgin pocket watch

The best tool to do it is watchmakers knife, but any proper knife with hardened steel blade can do the job. Make sure the blade is NOT flexible.
Check carefully the sides of your watch and you will notice the groove. Place knife blade into that groove and press it in. At the same time try to make a scooping turn to lift the caseback. Usually there must be underlayed caseback as well and it opens exactly in the same manner.
Make sure you do all this carefully and do not let the blade to slip or your watch will end up with nasty scratches or even damaged movement.
That job isn't a big deal, but requires some skill, so, BE CAREFULL.
Don't forget to rate, please.

Hello, Chipper -

Currently watches with the Elgin name are manufactured by M. Z. Berger & Co. I found the company web site and found information regarding how to obtain instructions for an Elgin brand watch the company manufactured.

From:
http://www.mzb.com/customer-care


From the company Contact Us web page, this is the phone number to call:
(718) 472-7500 ext. 7546
Long Island City, New York (Eastern Time zone)

Best wishes.
