Elgin Watch Co. 18 size 21 jewel hunting case lever-set Veritas with a heavy 14K gold hunting case with a scalloped band.  The case of this watch is extremely impressive with superb fancy engraving including an idyllic lakeside scene on its rear.  The movement is also quite nice being a Grade 274 which was Elgin's top quality 18 size hunting case grade.  Total production of the Elgin Grade 274 was 4000 made, and of these only 1373 are believed to have been marked with the Veritas name.  Watch is fronted by its correct double-sunk enamel dial.  Movement serial number is 9625484.  Gross weight of assembled watch is 98.6 dwt (153.4 grams).

Running and a beautiful movement with superb bright color and luster.  Dial is beautiful with no flaws.  Case is beautiful with its engraving detail in superb crisp condition.  Band of case has a mild small nick to its scallop at the 11 O'clock position.  Front shield of case is engraved with initials.  Case is not the original to this particular movement showing screw marks from having held another movement at some time in its past.  Good glass crystal.

$2000 plus shipment.
