The case is marked Philadelphia 20 years and case has virtually no wear. All the engraving is still nice and crisp. Crystal is very nice with no scratches. Hands are nice with no rust. It has a beautiful double sunk dial which has no hairlines but there is a flea bite nick above the 12 which is covered by bezel. Serial number is 8401902 which dates to 1899. It has a diamond end stone and a gold train. It winds and sets and keeps time but I have no service record so it should be serviced. I wound up the watch and after 24 hours with the face of the watch up it was 30 seconds fast. This is one of Elgin? S best railroad watches and is in close to mint condition. It will be a long time before you get another chance to own a beautiful watch like this!!!
