This was in a box of things I inherited from my grandfather. The case is marked Elgin, but the watch is Waltham. I assume that at some point in time my grandfather or great-grandfather had the Waltham watch replaced, because of the cracks, with a new Elgin watch and just put the old watch in the case that the new one came in. Thought it was pretty cool, so wanted to share it. I don't have any info on these pieces and would love any info that you might have! Thanks!

    Just found out the watch inside this case was made in 1902. :)

    Thanks! I figured thats what it was for, but had never seen one. I didn't know they came with glass in them. Pretty neat!
