Elgin Watch Co. 16 size 15 jewel hunting case lever-set Grade 83 "Doctor's Watch" in a superb 14K gold drum style hunting case.  Case is exceptional being in virtually as-new condition showing essentially no wear.  Front shield of case is engraved with fancy initials.  Watch is fronted by its correct enamel dial.  Movement is gilt finish and is marked "Adjusted", and the movement serial number is 743735.  Gross weight of assembled watch is 75.3 dwt (117.1 grams).

Movement is fully wound and not running but will tick if given a twist and some extra pressure on the crown, and I think likely hasn't seen any type of servicing in many years.  Very nice looking movement with excellent gilt color but does have some mild haze in areas around the perimeters of the plates.  Dial is superb.  Case has a broken or missing liftspring, and case is missing its crystal, but case is otherwise exquisite with absolutely crisp engine turning and engraving detail.
