20 Most Recent Elgin AU13 Antique Pocket Watch Questions & Answers

Well Melissa, you have about a hundred parts or more in the watch. If anyone of them is dirty, broken or whatever your watch will not run. You need to go talk with a watchmaker (not a jeweler) about your watch. If your watch hasn't been "overhauled" in the last ten years then that is most likely what is indicated. Watch oils and greases evaporate or turn to a scummy mess which may be the problem. Or you may have a broken balance staff. Or you may have rust and dirt built up to the point the watch can't overcome it.

I am not a huge expert by any means on pocket watches, especially vintage ones. But I did manage to find a website that might be exactly what you are looking for. Let me know if this helps you at all. Best regards.

Find a registered repair person in your area. It is very difficult if not impossible to find a value on you watch via the Internet sight unseen.


Total production: 159000
Finish: Gilded
Approx year of production: 1894

Hope this tip helps.

I don't know and it hardly matters as firstly such descriptions only apply to new watches and secondly, if it has ever had the case opened it should be considered not waterproof unless it has been fitted with new seals and pressure tested, something few repairers have the equipment for...

You have a vintage watch, Elgin ceased production in the '60s
Inquire in your town who are the most competent watchmakers, and ask them if they can do it

Might be a silly answer, but have you tried the thee Elgin site? Also try a Dollar store. They have some very small batteries that I use for my older watches. :-)
