The Elgin company was never heavily into clocks. It did produce some clocks for automobiles and for military applications. Most of these are actually 16 size grades, pocketwatch designs, with a lesser quality finish.
If you have a clock marked Elgin, particularly something like a wall clock, keep in mind that Elgin went completely out of business in 1968. The Elgin name has been used ever since by a variety of companies, many of which made clocks.
The Elgin brand appears on clocks to this day, a testament to the reputation of the Elgin watch company. However these product have no connection to the original business.
