I have a beautiful antique 1894 Elgin pocket watch with chain in working condition. I was trying to determine if this is gold or gold plated. I dont know how to tell the difference and I dont want to acid test this. I was hoping somebody could give me more information on the watch and how to determine the difference between gold and gold plated. The movement number is 5683684. The case number is 2009391. On the inside of the cover where the case number there is a crown with a scale symbol on both sides. There are no other markings. If anyone has any other knowledge on this watch let me know. Thanks.
