Without seeing clear scans of both the movement and the inside of the case back to be sure, I would guess that your watch was made in Europe, but placed in an American case. The Elgin Watch Case Co. was a major manufactirer of watch cases and was NOT related to the Elgin National Watch Co.

To futher clarify, the company based in Elgin that made watch cases was called the Illinois Watch Case Company and, as Ed stated, was not connected with the Elgin National Watch Company in any way.
