    I have a question about an elgin watch, I just purchased? It came with a lot of watches that I bought.The watch is in an star gold watch case . The case is marked star w. c. c. with a bowed oval circle around it. Their is also a star above it. and under the star w. c.c. their is a dot in the center with a arrow line on each side. it also says warrnted 20 years.The watch is in mint working cond. and is a 1919 eligin movement. It looks like a real gold case and not filled. Did star w. c.c make solid gold watches, and could this be one? Thanks. Scott

    I moved your question here from the Encyclopedia area. Comments on Encyclopedia articles are for clarification and questions about the article, not related material.

    In answer to your question, the presence of the 20 year warranty is a clear indication of a gold filled case. A pristine gold filled case is a very nice thing and certainly worth having.

    One of the more sad things collectors see is a gold filled case that has been damaged by a misguided attempt to determine the gold content.
