Elgin pocketwatches from the early years are particularly interesting because of the methods and philosophy of the Elgin company. Elgin used what were at the time quite advanced tools, techniques and labor practices to achieve a very high quality product, in high volumes, at a relatively affordable price. Elgin watches were created using mechanized, repeatable processes, organized quality control and standardized, interchangeable, parts.
These things are all common practices in industry today, but not so at that time. The result was a product of high quality made in large quantities that dwarfed that of Elgin's competitors. Prior to Elgin's time, watches were made completely by hand, frequently by a single craftsman, from start to finish. Repairs could only be completed on such watches by someone with sufficient skill to fabricate replacement parts, from scratch, from raw material.
Elgin watches on the other hand, were mass manufactured and highly standardized. Spare parts parts were provided by Elgin that were drop-in replacements for the originals. Elgin was extremely successful with this strategy. In fact, the company introduced more than half the watches made in America from An Elgin advertisement in claimed that there were more than 14, retail jewelers in the United States and all but 12 carried Elgin watches.
Elgin recognized that craftsmanship and design were highly valued by the customer. A great deal of care and hand work went into these watches. The results were every bit as beautiful, elegant and as accurate as much more expensive competitors. Elgin watches are a product of a unique moment in industrialization and technological development. They were made on the cusp of mass manufacture, as we know it today, yet we would also say they were hand-made, and clearly by a labor force of significant skill.
They are uniquely American, in every way. Elgin's massive factory was built on 35 acres of land denoted by the city for the factory itself and housing for workers and staff. The initial construction was completed in , although there were a number of additions over the years. At its peak it employed over people, more than half of which were women. The building grew in several stages. The main building's final state is pictured above.
Its design consisted of tall and narrow arms having many windows, with open interior spaces. This was so that natural sunlight was available to as much of the interior floor space as possible. Check out photos and other images from the Elgin factory. Elgin's early form of mass-manufacturing was of a sort that is unimaginable today. In the picture the rail line is visible along the left. Trainloads of raw material - iron ore, gold, brass, leather, rubber, oil, everything - came in, and finished watches came out.
The Elgin shops literally made the machines that made the machines that made watches, from the most basic materials, all under one roof. This huge complex was completely destroyed in Today there is an unremarkable strip-mall at the site. Elgin founded a watchmakers' college near its factory in in order to create a pool of watchmakers trained in the craft, and of course in Elgin watches specifically, and the Elgin parts system.
Although the school operated independently from the Elgin company, the motivation was clear. Elgin's interchangeable, standardized parts system, together with a trained labor force of credentialed, commercial watchmakers was sure to promote Elgin's product line. And it did. The Watch Word , the Elgin factory magazine, printed a nice article on the college on its 20th anniversary in The school operated until The building has been torn down. His instructors there were among the most renown watchmakers of the time.
He is gone now, but Elgin pocketwatches remained favorites throughout his career. He said "they are all grade A. Here's the watch school's students and and staff in a photo from a issue of The Watch Word. Everett Sexton is the second from the left in the first row. Unfortunately, class photos like this were not a routine thing.
There are a few informal watch school photos taken in other years, but this one and one other of this '36 class that are the only images of this sort that I have seen. I am very lucky to have this photo. The Elgin company was the only watch company of its day to construct an observatory, in , dedicated to measuring time. Materials Diamond, White Diamond, 14k Gold.
