Sunday Seniors (pre-1990)


Recommended Posts

Great opportunity for me to post on this site for the first time so I thought I’d share with you this handsome little Revue Art Deco pocket watch that I picked up a while ago in the “bay”.

I’ve been informed that it dates back to the 1920s and it has a GT Revue movement. It has been looked after and serviced regularly. If keeps really good time for it’s age. If anyone can give me any further information about this watch I would welcome your responses1F27EBC4-37B4-4511-93A0-28D054C5E3BD.thumb.jpeg.6db3cb47478db8f055c51f6fac974911.jpegA9D56AA0-38F8-4F97-9B7D-C9969683821B.thumb.jpeg.a52cb7d80d921ed94bf9e1d449486bcc.jpegBE616675-36AF-47AD-B529-BD778A2B511E.thumb.jpeg.4d95510c1cce8696370ecdc094a32ed6.jpeg

Elgin PW (1924) with Masonic craft symbols, from when I used to belong to the order. Size 12, seventeen jewelled movement, grade 345, housed in a green gold 'Scepter' case.

PW, Elgin Masonic watch.

PW, Masonic watch movement.

PW, Masonic Elgin.

I do love and old Elgin for obvious reasons (living in Elgin, Moray...it's not Elgin, Illinois, the same spelling but sounds different)

The movement decoration is beautiful, and they are normally quite reasonably priced, sometimes selling for far less than they are worth.

Thanks for sharing, I like seeing the Masonic version.

Here's a pic of my 1914 Elgin which is a non funny handshake, trouser leg pulled up version. :biggrin:

Some lovely pocket watches today, so I'll join in - 1890s gold-filled case by Crescent Watch Co, 19''' Omega movement signed Trorey of Vancouver. 

Geo. Trorey, Vancouver pocket watch

 

Trorey pocket watch

George Trorey had a shop on the intersection of Hastings and Granville in the 1890s. He sold out to Birks of Toronto in 1906 and was their manager in Vancouver for another 20 years, as well as a Canadian Pacific watch inspector. The clock which stood outside his shop was moved and rebranded when Birks relocated their store.

I do love that. What a beautifully ornamented movement.

Nice watch. The movement is, as you probably know, an 18.5''' Revue 51 Hunter, from around the late '20s to early '30s period.

Regards.
