Elgin Pocket Watches


Elgin Pocket Watches

Perhaps best known for their output of pocket watches, Elgin timepieces continue to attract interest from keen bidders. Recent top prices for Elgin watches include the sale of Tom Hanks' Elgin pocket watch from the TV drama 'Castaway' which sold for $13,000. 

18ct, platinum, 14ct and 9ct gold cased pocket watches by Elgin retain an enduring appeal at auction and continue to rise in value. As above, provenance, or alternatively case detailing and chronograph capabilities can help push the price of these timepieces further. 


Elgin Military Watches

Rarely seen at auction, Elgin military watches created for the US navy sell exceptionally well at auction. 'Canteen' diver's wristwatches from the 1940s can fetch thousands with keen collectors, and so it is always worth getting your unworn and inherited timepieces checked by our specialist team. 

Our specialist Fine Jewellery & Watch auctions are held four times a year and include the whole spectrum of jewellery and wristwatches, from modern and designer pieces to antique jewels, coloured gemstone jewellery to fob and pocket watches. Our department is headed by Liz Bailey who is FGA and DGA qualified, with many years experience in the industry. We offer a free watch valuations service as well as a free collection service for items consigned to these auctions.
