Serial Number 15157747 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: This watch is single roller. Later watches were
likely double roller.
Curator Response: Thanks for the report. The 1914 "Elgin Watches" catalog describes the grade as featuring a "double-roller escapement." However, material catalogs conflict with this description, indicating the grade was fitted with a single roller throughout production. I have removed the "double roller" property on this grade until further research can be completed.
