This is a vintage watch with a mechanical movement that needs to be hand-wound periodically in order to keep time correctly. It is a watch from the 1950s, so its level of time-keeping accuracy is specific to the period when it was manufactured.
Elgin was founded in 1864, right as the civil war was coming to an end. The first watch Elgin made, an 18 sized B W Raymond railroad grade watch, was finished in 1867 and over the next 100 years, they went on to produce about 60 million watches. Elgin produced its first wristwatch around 1910, leading most other American watch companies by many years. Elgin was originally called the "National Watch Company". The name never really stuck and in 1874, they changed their name to the "Elgin National Watch Company" because most of the watch trade and public were calling them "watches from Elgin". They kept that name until the late 1960s when they stopped producing watches and changed their name to the "Elgin National Industries".
