    Here is my Elgin. If you notice they took a off the shelve BW Raymond since there's 21 jewel instead of 22 jewel on the movement my guess is they were in a hurry to get these out in the beginning of production on this one. Good thread you wrote.

    On page 325 of "Military Timepieces", Whitney notes "The earlier [Elgin GCT] movements were marked 21 jewels. However they carried 22 jewels, the additional one being found in the sweep second pinion bridge."

    I have one - bought 20 years ago at an antiques show in Maryland. The dial had been doctored to show PM hours. Here is a photo of the dial during and after cleanup.



    Not pristine, runs just fine.
