|Elgin 18S 17J|
Very Scarce Grade 166
Original 14K 20 Yr Case
RR Grade/Approved In 1896
2 Year Production..4011 Made
| Circa 1896, pendant set, gold jewel settings, adjusted to positions, RR Grade/Approved in 1896, Here's a scarce high grade 17 Jewel Elgin 166! |
This is the first one like this I have had in 20 years, I've never seen this model before now!
Has an early Phila 20 Yr Yellow GF case good crown tight bow, beautiful floroal scene covering half the back. Other features include a beautiful porcelain double sunk Elgin "Curly Q" dial with original hands and a beautiful nickel 17 Jewel movement marked adjusted with unusual black lettered font and damaskeening. Take a look at that unusual movement! Really a special watch!
This watch was only mfg for 2 years...1895-1896 and is one of only 4.011 made...very low production for an Elgin! It is in the same family and in fact some were marked BW Raymond as well as their top grade "150". This unmarked 166 is much harder to find!
