The Elgin National Watch Company was in business between 1864 and 1968. The founders of the company persuaded watchmakers from Waltham Watch Co in Massachusetts to join them in Elgin, Illinois, some thirty miles northwest of Chicago, where a new factory was built for the manufacture of Elgin watches. The original, now obsolete, factory in Elgin closed in 1964 with final US manufacture under the original brand being discontinued in 1968.
