Elgin Pocket Watch 02.05.09 [36]

Going through the boxes from storage now. Sort of blown away from some of the finds. Forgot we had them. I had never tired to wind this until tonight.. and it works... sat for a long time just staring at the bare movement.... listening to the ticking and the impossibly small mechanisms spin in perfection.... it is beautiful.. my pictures do nothing for it really. and this is 130 years old.... 02.05.09
