The Elgin watch serial number decoder

This will decode the MOVEMENT serial number to an approximate date of manufacture for your vintage Elgin watch, you need to open the watch and get the serial off the movement itself, this does not decode case serial numbers.

This date is approximate and should be thought of as the first possible date that it may have been made, it seems movements may have been made in large batches and not actually completed as a full watch until months later.
