    Here is a SUPERB and a highly sought-after VINTAGE Elgin RAILROAD GRADE pocket watch in an 18K SOLID GOLD HUNTER CASE…. The serial number indicates the estimated year of production to have been 1879, with the personal engraving on the cuvette cover revealing a presentation date of Dec. The engraving shows the presenter of this watch to have been Farnham & Lovejoy which a Google search shows to have been a Minneapolis Law Firm at the time, the watch comes with its original box that is signed Eustes Bros. Which another Google search shows to have been a jewelry store on Nicollete St. This example is a grade 50 model 1 convertible movement and was in production at The Elgin National Watch Co. There were only 36000 made during those 17 years, so it is a somewhat scarce model and unusual to find one now that is in this great condition some 135 years later…. The watch is in good running order and keeping time, the dial is nearly flawless, the Breguet style hands are in excellent condition, and the case is in good cosmetic condition with all the inside surfaces being polished to perfection, the hinges function properly and the covers rest open to the correct ninety degree angles… The front and rear covers are each signed 18K and hallmarked 18K and have tested to that content both electronically and with acid testing, gross weight 143.5 grams…. The rear cover is superbly engraved with a multi-themed scene and maintains most of its original detailing, while the front cover details are worn thin…. One interesting feature regarding the Mosely regulator__it has a traveling nut arrangement and this example is unique in that the curved threaded rod that holds the nut is a very strong BLUED STEEL COLOR… Thank You Very Much.
