    Elgin pocket watch:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This was my great grandfather's (then my grandfather's, and then my father's) pocket watch. Looking up the serial number, it was manufactured in 1924:

    Serial Number SN Range RunQty Name Year grade size code jewels Adj/reg/etc.
    -------------- -------- ------ ---- ---- ----- ---- ------ ------ ------------
    2704#### 27025001 22000 1924 303 12s o3n3p 7j

    It's not running. Does anyone have any recommendations for watch repair in San Francisco for this sort of thing? I realize that this is not a particularly valuable watch, but it has quite a lot of sentimental value to me.

    Quite the opposite; this is a very valuable watch. Not sure it gets much better than that; better make sure you get a top notch repair guy touching that.

    Graz on the Kingston. I am envious, such a beauty.

    Thanks. I am a plank owner and in on the forum design of this watch, I waited 2 years for it, but Bill did an excellent job on it.

    Here are more pictures.

    Love the Kingston.

    Also, does that crystal come standard on the sea-dweller?


    Thanks.

    Yes that is the standard crystal.

    The crystal on the Seadweller (16600) is thicker than on the date Submariner (16610) or the no date sub (14060). That is one of the changes made to gain the 1,220 meter water resistance vs 300 meter on the others.

    Here are a couple of photos of the Grand Seiko SBGR051,which I own. These are not my pics, sorry. I will try and post some of my own in the New Year, together with pics of some of my other watches. The Seiko is my usual work watch, which I wear with a suit.

    Elgin pocket watch
    That is a gorgeous piece. Why not try taking it around to some of the high end jewelry/watch shops in the area and see what they tell you? I know a jewelry store in the mall here has a watch guy who worked and trained in Switzerland for 25 years and is very highly recommended.

    Beautiful! Work of art. I'd recommend looking into your local NAWCC to see if there is a watch repairer who specializes in that mfg/type. Looks like this is the SF branch member listing: http://www.sfchapter5.org/Member%20I...ion%20List.htm I'd contact one of them to see who they might recommend
