    Interesting.. Shugarts doesn't list any 11J 0s Elgins... Or am I going blind?
    Not that I was going to post the value up here, because it clearly states at the top of the page "No Requests for Timepiece Values".

    Tristan, as a novice some of the codes and descriptions may not mean much to you. This is a small watch (0-size), usually worn by ladies. You do not describe the case, if it has one, but "HC" means a hunting case, that is a case that has a metal cover to protect the dial. The cases are often beautifully engraved. This variety winds at the 3 o'clock position so that the dial can be easily read when the cover is opened. One or two fine cracks are common in the enamel dials of this age. You are at a good age to get into watches as a hobby, if they interest you, and working at a jewelry store is a good place to learn about them. I started when I was 14 and it has been a life-long interest.

    Since it is an heirloom, it is therefore priceless. It will always be worth more to you than anyone else.
