The perfect companion the next time you step out in style - a gentlemen's 15-jewel Elgin hunter in a gold-filled case. The factory produced this beautiful 3-finger-bridge Grade 247 for only a few years at the turn of the century, before the first World Series was played, before Harley-Davidson was founded, and before Henry Ford launched the Model T. Go back to a simpler time in another century with this nothing-but-class survivor.

Here is an excellent addition to your growing collection. It's a 16-size Elgin gentlemen's hunter in fantastic shape, housed in a 20-year gold-filled Keystone case, one of the best case makers of the day. The movement is a fully restored and entirely correct 15-jewel Grade 247, which is a pendant-set design. Fifteen jewels is an ideal and efficient jewel count, lacking only the pair on the center wheel to make seventeen, which turns too slowly to generate any appreciable friction, and this extra pair can be easily broken by someone pounding the hands on. The dial is a snow-white single-sunk Roman-numeral fronting a set of blued light-spade hands under a glass crystal. The case is in beautiful condition, with tight hinges and lids that open to precisely 90 degrees and no farther. There is no brass anywhere, and it has a blank shield and a blank dust cover with no inscriptions.
