Elgin Grade 91 movement behind the dial featured in yesterday’s post. While factory records list a single run of 1,000 serial numbers designated for the Grade 91, it is estimated that less than 350 were actually manufactured. Pictured: Elgin Grade 91 Movement, No. 942265
Pictured: Early Arabic Dial on Elgin Interchangeable Movement, c.1885. Until the 1880s, watch dials manufactured in the United States almost exclusively featured Roman Numeral hourly indicators. Not only was this.
