Description

A great dial, depicting the US Cavalry in the foregound with an Indian village in the background. Appears to be a transfer, its not handpainted, no idea when it was applied. Working and was tested over a period of 48 hours and gained between 2 & 3 minutes, will need either a service or repair to keep perfect time and to sort out other issues. These issues are.  The time set lever dosen’t extend out far enough and very hard to set the time.   The other is the winder, it doesn’t engage the movement sometimes. Note that the pocket watch was made in a cross over period between key & stem wind. It can be wound either way. The large heavy set Coin Silver case is 56.2mm in diameter & weighs 149 grams. 1873 Elgin M. D. Ogden, Grade 8, Model 2, Class 5, 18S, 11J, lever set, stem & key wind with date serial number 258090. INCREDIBLY RARE, only 4,917 of this model was made during 1873, just makes you wonder how many are remaining. Outer case is slightly worn.
