Welcome!

Classic watches, watchmaking, antique tools, history, vintage ephemera and more!

Learn about mechanical timepieces and how they work, the history of the American watch industry and especially all about the Elgin National Watch Company! Check back for new content daily.

Although this is technically a blog, the content is not generally in a time-based sequence. You can find interesting items throughout. Down the page some is an alphabetical word cloud of keywords used here. A great way to dig in is to look through those topics and click anything you find interesting. You'll see all the relevant content.

Here are a few of my favorites!

There are some large images on some posts, so that might impact your load times, bit I think you will find it worth the wait. Thanks for visiting!

Yet Another Photo Stream!

I make pretty heavy use of Google+, a service which is, unfortunately, shall we say... sort of adrift these days. So I'm adding something new to see how it goes. Now you can follow Elgintime on Instagram!

I have not used Instagram in the past because it just can't connect and engage folks the way a page of text and photos can. But we'll see how it goes and how much interest there is. Being as simplistic as it is, it certainly isn't any extra effort to post!

I am also experimenting with some other photo management sites as what I have been using has become... unsound... and continues to have even the most basic functionality removed. Stay tuned on that.
