National Watch Co. (Elgin) Keywind Pocket Watch

Beautifully preserved, this first-year National Keywind watch is a gem among timepieces. Bearing the serial number 8748, it hails from the inaugural year of production at the renowned National Watch Co., later known as Elgin. The heart of this watch is the impressive “G.M. Wheeler” 18 size, 11 jewel Key wind movement, which effortlessly springs to life when wound. Currently in running condition, the watch has been recently serviced, ensuring its smooth operation. Encased in a charming silvering case, it boasts a thick glass crystal that has just been replaced, enhancing its pristine appearance. The dial is equally delightful, free from any visible hairlines. Despite its 154-year-old age, this timepiece exhibits exceptional care and remains in remarkable condition. Accompanied by a key, it is a rare find for any ardent collector seeking an early Elgin watch. The accompanying pictures provide a closer look at its exquisite details, and should you have any inquiries, please feel free to ask.
