    I saw another member post a circa 1923 watch and thought I would share mine. I don't come across these 10 sided cases very often, you almost always find them in octagon cases, and I have yet to see more than a handful of solid gold cased 10 sided watches, this one is 14k.

    The movement runs like a top and keeps accurate time down to the minute over days. The dial is engraved silver and also a great feature.

      I also have an Elgin 10 Sided, seirial # 20916762. I was hoping someone could give more information or a starting point on this watch.
