My grandfather gave this to me, he thought it may be worth some money. his father bought it in 1910 and gave it to my grandfather when he turned 15. it still works, says elgin on front and on back also says elgin base metal, it has alligator straps. its in pretty good condition. I would like to know if there is any value in it. any info would be very much appreciated. thank you. Patty

    Sorry to say, but this is not a 1910 model, closer to the 1970's

    Sorry to hear about Grandfather, but I'll keep an eye out for your other one. Again this one is a nice timepiece and probably 17 jewel. That's a good timepiece and the automatic feature was just the thing in the 70's. Top notch in it's day. Thanks for sharing your heirloom with me.
