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.

You do not need to go all over the world to find replacement for your watch glass. You have plenty of excellent watchmakers in France. I've been there, so, I know. All you have to do is to find your nearest watch repair shop and bring your watch in. Watchmaker will get all the measurements and will replace the glass.
Rate me, plz.

You might be able to pop it open with a pocket knife ... don't stab yourself though.

SOURCE: need to add links to

That's the battery number for the watch also known as the #377. It's the most common watch battery in the world. Your model number is located at the bottom of the dial (face) below the six-o'clock position. You will need a 10 power jeweler's loupe or magnifying glass to see it and read it. Jot down the number and contact Elgin directly (MZ Berger Co,) for the extra links.

probably not as much as you think it is worth. There are to many varibles to consider value. An item is only worth what another person is willing to give you for it. If you truly want its value, go have it appraised. That will cost you to get a qualified appraisal.

The Clasp broke on My Elgin watch.Is that under warranty? Jeweler says he can not fix it. It is 1 1/2 yrs old


I don't know the details of the guarantee for your watch but most makers exclude anything that is not inside the case, e.g. strap, crystal or anything else that you are likely to damage and want repairing!

I suggest you contact Elgin and see if they can sell yo another strap.

Helloi have an Elgin watch I am trying to sale I am not trying to get lowballed on the price..if you could help me out and tell me how much it is worth the info is b.w. Raymond Elgin 571 u-s-a V531181 8...


mcdevito75 here, Elgin, a fine, fine watch, If the name on the dial says Lady Elgin it could be worth more, but the fact it"s an Elgin counts alot also. Older Elgins are also worth more as they are collectables, Let"s say your Elgin is 20 years old and in fine . fine shape, no scratches, tarnishing and is keeping great time it"s worth could be $100.00 -- $150.00 Of course this depends on many factors as mentioned. If your Elgin is say only 5--10 years ols it"s value in my opinion is approx.$75.00 -- $100.00 Bset Bet, visit a few jewelers in your area, many will give a free apraisel on the value of your Elgin.
