My Elgin Pocket Watch Collection
Page Two

Gold Hunter Pocket Watch

 

Size  

 

  16 
(1 21/30")
 

Year it was made  

 

  1911
 

Number of Jewels  

 

  17
 

Serial Number  

 

  16,229,338

The Term "Hunter" indicates that the watch has a hinged lid over the front and back.  I was told by Wayne Schlitt (http://www.midwestcs.com/)   that it is a coincidence  that George Hunter was a production supervisor in the plant.  Wayne said that they called them Hunters long before George took the helm.  I think if I were George Hunter,  I would claim to my death that the Hunters were named after me!  :-)
