Celebrate Your Individuality with this exceptional antique beauty!
I absolutely adore beautiful antique pocket watch movements, and this one, I personally think, is a rare beauty! Don't you agree? As they say, "They ain't making any more of these!"
"The Elgin National Watch Company was founded in August 1864 as the National Watch Company. The Elgin Watch Company (also known as the Elgin National Watch Company) was the largest US watch company in terms of production. In fact, Elgin produced approximately one-half of the total number of higher-quality pocket watches manufactured in the United States. The contributions of the Elgin National Watch Company to American Horological industry cannot be overstated."
This is your chance to own a magnificent piece of watchmaking history. If not for yourself, then what a wonderful gift for someone very dear to you! It will definitely never go out of style and is very, very collectible. According to the serial number (5717831), its manufacturer date was 1894 during the height of the Victorian Era, and I'm sure that the individual who originally purchased it was very, very proud of it! And now, you can be, too!
This Steampunk treasure would be equally stunning as a gift that very special male or female on your shopping list!
