Elgin 246 "Click" to Login or Register 
posted
This is a recent acquisition with the help of Tom McIntyre. The 246 is a 17J pendant set watch , with gold jewel settings and a gold train. The case is a 20 year Star case. The total production was 2000. I thing it is among the most beautiful movments that Elgin ever produced. This has what one member called the "lace doily" winding wheels.

Jerry, A lot of these are seen with fancy dials. BTW yours has a dial that looks to be very high grade, ie DS and looks to be glass enamel and is probably original to the watch.

Tom:

Yes that is an original glass enamel dial. I have another watch is this "lace doily series" a 161 that does have one of Elgin's fancy dials. By now I think everyone knows I admire the grades 156,162,161,155,243 and 246. These are all low production watches and beautifully finished watches!
