Elgin 18s 15J, circa 1886

"G. M. Wheeler", Grade 44

Pendant Set, Stem Wind

Nickel DUEBER Triple Hinged Case

Dial: The original Elgin dial is marked ELGIN NAT'L WATCH CO. The porcelain dial is in pristine condition with just the tiniest of an edge flake visible under heavy magnification, invisible to the naked eye. It features black Roman numerals surrounded by "RR Track" minute intervals. The cobalt hands are also in great condition and show very well. This really is a beauty!

Movement: This high grade nickel plated movement features an expansion balance, screw down jewel settings, and a patent micrometric regulator. It is signed "G. M. Wheeler". It has recently been professionally cleaned and oiled, and is keeping good time.

Case: This heavy 3 ounce nickel case is marked DUEBER SILVERINE CANTON OHIO inside the back cover. There are minor scratches and scuffs due to normal pocket wear on this heavy duty case. The inside dust cover hinge is worn but still functional. The back lid hinge and the bezel hinge are nice and tight. The bow is tight and the crown shows little signs of use.

Crystal: Recently fitted with a new old stock clear glass crystal to show off the excellent dial!!
