I've been pretty busy these days putting in a lot of shop time.
Here are some of my recent restorations that I have finished up with, most are Elgin but there are a couple others as well..
1918 Elgin "Black Star Dial" Trench Watch, Fahys sterling silver "armored" case with an integrated crystal guard.
1918 Elgin Trench Watch, GIANT size 6s, semi-hermetic Illinois nickel case, correct military dial and hands that have been re-lumed.
1916 Elgin Trench Watch, size 0s, Illinois nickel silver case with a hinged case back, re-lumed dial and hands.
1917 Elgin Trench Watch, size 3/0s, Philadelphia sterling silver case with a hinged case back, RED 12 enamel dial with a "Made in USA" stamp.
WWI Hampden Transition Trench Watch, size 3/0s, Durber "silverine" case with a hinged bezel, this is a "lever arm" set movement.
While not American this is a VERY nice 1923 Rolex Trench Watch, sterling silver case with a hinged case back, 34mm case, black and white enamel dial.
The second watch, the 1918 Giant size 6s Elgin semi-hermetic is by FAR my favorite, these are VERY hard to obtain!!!!
I'm working on a sterling silver one this week. Yes, a sterling silver size 6s Elgin Trench Watch !!!!!
