    I have this Elgin Pocket watch that I discovered in a friend of mines home after he became ill and could no longer live alone in the home. I know very little about pocket watches, I know however that this pocketwatch is 14 karat gold. I went onto the official Elgin website and did some digging, and this is what the site gave me when i put the serial number in
    Serial Number SN Range Quanty Name Year grade size code jewels Adj/reg/etc.
    -------------- -------- ------ ---- ---- ----- ---- ------ ------ ------------
    25598173 25597001 3000 1922 291 16s o3n7p 7j

    grade total runs first yr last yr class size code jewels Adj/name
    ----- ----- ----- -------- ------- ----- ---- ------ ------ ----------
    291 1501000 425 1903 1945 110 16s o3n7p 7j

    Class 110: 16s OF 3/4 pend model 7
    291 1501000 made 7j
    293 704000 made 7j gilded
    300 24000 made 15j
    313 524000 made 15j
    366 22000 made 15j gilded
    387 357700 made 17j
    However, like I said before, I know very little about pocket watches so this whole thing may as well be in a different language to me. SO if anybody could give me any information on the value of this that would be absolutely great.
