    Need some information on this Elgin pocket watch. Have not tried to open it because it's to tight and didn't want to force it. Any information is very welcome. thanks

      probably has a screw on back,..Ive found a wad of duckt tape with the sticky side out will let you grip the smooth back n twist it off,..like openign a jar,.be gentle shouldnt take a HUGE amount of force to open it,..if it wont budge hold off n hit a watch repair place,...looks to be from the 1920s from the style of it very nice piece

      get it open and get the serial number off the movement and someone in here will tell you the exact year and how neat it is

      oh don't try n twist off the front with the duct tape trick,...a lot of those old watch crystals aren't held in by much after 90 years and you can end up popping the crystal out
