Scarce Gambler, Las Vegas, or Playing Cards Dial

Pocket Watch



We just acquired the picture below of a similar pocket watch used in an opening scene from the TV show "Hell on Wheels"

This Fancy Multicolor "Elgin National Watch Company" dial has

playing cards dial, with "Lucky Dollar" above the subsidiary seconds register. 



Elgin Factory Signed & Hallmarked 14 Karat White Gold Filled fancy engraved case edge, stem sleeve & bow Art Deco Era "Streamline" Hinged Back Case built by Wadsworth Case Company

This is an American 12 Size timepiece measuring 44.35mm in diameter (not counting the sleeve, stem, crown or fancy engraved bow).



This extremely unusual timepiece is powered by its original 3/4 nickel plate high quality Elgin factory signed, grade 479, fully adjusted & micrometer regulated (like the Railroad watches), 17 jewel, screw-down jewel settings, hand damaskeened precision movement.



The hands are also fancy. They are a matched set of fancy blued hour, minute & second hands.



We are also including with this great timepiece a matching New Old Stock (never used) Boston Link pocket watch chain!



The last time we had & sold one of these "Gamblers" or Playing Card Dial watches was 6 years ago. We had people trying to buy it for nearly a year after it sold! Don't wait too long "thinking" about this one, or it will be GONE!
