Elgin Pocket Watch History

The Elgin National Watch Company

Most commonly known as just the Elgin Watch company was a major US watch maker. The company sold watches under the names, Elgin, Lord Elgin, and Lady Elgin. The company was first incorporated in August 1864 as the National Watch Company, in Chicago Illinois. The growing young city of Elgin, Illinois, some 30 miles to the northwest of Chicago, was chosen as the factory site. The first movement, delivered in 1867, was named the B.W. Raymond in honor of Benjamin W. Raymond. The watch was an 18 size, full plate design. In 1874, the company officially changed its name to the Elgin National Watch Company, as the Elgin name had come into common usage for their watches.
