      What you have is a modern watch bearing the Elgin name, but no connection to the Elgin National Watch Co.
      The Elgin National Watch Co. went out of business in 1968, and in fact never made quartz watches. Watches are produced to this day under the Elgin name and others like Waltham, Gruen, etc.. These watches have been made over the years by a variety of Asian and European markets, and are not products of the original Elgin, Waltham or Gruen companies.

      They really know how to burst a bubble, don't they?
