Placing any type of value on an Elgin watch just can’t be done with any degree of accuracy or confidence.
The best experts in the world would not attempt this, unless they had the actual watch in their hand, and their trusty eye-glass with them.

After that in terms of value, I would like to know do you have the original box.
Now as a sense check only I would next go to e Bay or other shopping sites online.
