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.

SOURCE: I want to know the price for my elgin pocket

mcdevito75 here, Depending on it"s age, condition, working or not and how well, it Could have a COLLECTOR VALUE of $40---$100.00 and that is of course what a COLLECTOR is willing to pay. Your local watch repair shop or jeweler could be more precise.

Old pocket watch Waltham what year & what it is worth Serial no. 8085585 American Watch Co.


Your watch is a 1896 model, manufactured near the end of the production runs for that year. Check this link to verify Waltham Pocket Watch age, and manufacturing info:

http://www.pocketwatchsite.com/walthamserials.html

Get a copy of the "Complete Price Guide to Watches by Cooksey Shugart", and check out pricing for thousands of watches. I've found that many of the common Walthams and Elgins for that series will be valued between 75-250.00 for standard production runs. If the watch is rare and has a 14 k or 18K gold case, then the sky is the limit, depending upon condition and the actual weight of gold in the case, and/or movement.

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.
