Hey guys ! ! !

I just finished up with this one about an hour ago, I'm very pleased with the results ! !

This is a 1904 Elgin Transition Wrist Watch.

It started out life in a pocket watch case but was then re-cased into this Philly case that was made in 1916-1917.

Hence, transition piece.

Size 6s grade 295 movement with 15 jewels.

Giant 38mm Philadelphia "Silverode" case with the original factory crown.
(usually they were MUCH smaller, around 31mm-32mm)

ORNATE enamel Roman numeral dial that is SUPERB with a glossy finish ! ! ! ! !

New glass crystal, new mainspring, new genuine Buffalo band, new inner sleeve on the crown tube.

The new inner sleeve was the hardest part believe it or not, the exact replacement part is HARD to come by these days.

I'll be rock'n this one for a few days ! ! ! ! ! ! !














The movement looks SUPERB for being 108 years old ! ! !

Thanks ! ! !

I am really digging this style right now, it's a bit unusual from my normal stuff.

LOVE these BIG 38mm Philly cases ! ! ! ! ! !

Wish I was in the market for a watch. That one is incredible!

Quality work like I've come to expect from you. Just a very special dial and size!
+1 Jeff!

A buddy of mine at work found Stan and was telling me the horror stories
of trying to get his Trench watches fixed BEFORE meeting Stan... he is an Elgin Pershing nut.
He is simply in LOVE with Stan's watches!
