Elgin watches have a serial number on the movement (right on the guts inside). The number you gave has a D in the middle and Elgin did not use letters, so maybe you meant the number without the D. I will assess it that way. Elgin pocket watch with serial number(###) ###-####is a grade 75 watch made in 1889 in size 18s. It is an openface, 15jewel pocket watch with a full plate movement. Some of the movements were marked GM Wheeler. There were 98,000 of these watches made. This watch case would be gold-filled and not gold. The value of this watch this condition$75.00 to $85.00.
