    I saw 2 of these today(one Elgin, can't remember other name) they are much heaver(in hand)
    than I thought. The price was right but I didn't buy one, I'm not sure if these are for me.
    Very cool clock though.

    Yep, I just had to have a size 37 movement to go in my Elgin collection.
    I figure one wouldn't hurt.

    Yeah. About that....

    "Oh, look! A nice, 50's Lord Elgin wristwatch! It's just one! What's the worst that could happen?"

    "Oh, hey! A cute little Elgin pocket watch in rose gold! It's just one! What's the worst that could happen?"

    "Okay, a nice 16s Elgin from 1950. It's just one! What's the worst that could happen?"

    "A Keywind BW Raymond from 1871! It's just one! What's the worst that could happen?"
