    Elgin + Frederick Francis + Kewanee

    Hello. I live a couple towns from Elgin, Illinois, and worked in Elgin for 25 years. I have been collecting Elgin watches for years. And there is something I just can not figure out on my own - so I was hoping someone on this Board has the answer to this. At the very least, this is going to...

    Convertible Pocket Watches

    This has probably been posted before. But I'm not having any luck finding an answer. So my question is - Besides Elgin, how many other watch companies made convertible pocket watches? Thanks for your help.

    Elgin Grade 193 Raymond

    Hi. This is my very first post on the board. I have a question for knowledgeable Elgin collectors. I have a Grade 193 Raymond. It is a Size 12. I thought I remembered reading something somewhere that all Raymonds were RR grade "at the time" they were made. The one I have is from 1913...
