Watch Description

What makes the Chicago 525 unique: For this year's Valentine's Day Special Release, we are actually showcasing two incredible watches together at the same time. Both of these watches are made in the hunting style, with the crown at the 3 position, with incredible presentation dials. The pair can stand alone individually, but also could make for quite a matching pair for you and your partner. We are absolutely in love with this decorative dial and all of the gold-colored accents that go along with it. We found this incredible set of unique hands that work perfectly and draw you in to explore the watch closely. Our Gilded titanium case and gold hardware paired with this Navy leather strap really brings the entire design together nicely. As you turn this watch over, you will see more gold elements with these impeccable gears that hide beneath this intricately machined build plate. This watch features 17 screw-set jewels that stand out against this nickel-plated finish and will help keep this watch running accurately for years to come.

On February 14th, 1859, Oregon was admitted to the United States as the 33rd state. This event was significant in that it marked the first time that a territory was admitted to the Union with a free constitution. This event was a milestone in the history of the United States and was celebrated on Valentine's Day as a symbol of love for the nation. This day is now celebrated in Oregon as Oregon Admission Day. On this day, Oregonians celebrate the state's admission to the Union with parades, festivals, and other activities.

Movement Manufacturer Information

The movement inside of this watch was made by Elgin Watch Company. We call this model "The Chicago" because of the company's proximity to the city.

Also known as Elgin National Watch Company, Elgin wasn't only the largest watch manufacturer in the United States, but the largest watch manufacturer in the world for almost 100 years, operating from 1864-1964. The company often used a depiction of father time on advertisements. At one point, the company was making 7,500 watch movements per week and had 2,300 employees. The factory was demolished in 1966 and replaced with a shopping center.
