ELGIN WATCH Co. (NATIONAL WATCH CO.) Elgin- Illinois 1864 – 1964 This was the largest watch company in terms of production, in fact, Elgin produced half of the total number of pocket watches (dollar-type not included). Some of the organizers came from Waltham Watch Co. including P.S. Bartlett, D.G. Currier, Otis Hoyt, Charles H. Mason and others. The idea of beginning a large watch company for the mid-West was discussed by J.C. Adams, Bartlett and Blake. They organized a group of inventors to put up the necessary capital and was formed in August 1864. The factory was completed in 1866, & the 1st movement was a B.W. Raymond, 18 size. The name was changed in 1974 to The Elgin National Watch Co. By 1964 over 50 million watches were produced. This watch is No. 36811, 2nd run Circa: 1868.
