A lot of information can be determined about your Elgin watch from just the serial number on the movement (where the gears are).
For example, at the bottom of this web page is a table that can tell you approximately what year your watch was made.
The reason that the movement and case serial numbers are unrelated is because up until the 1920's, almost all American watches were sold separately from the watch cases.
These movements featured bi-directional, full-rotor winding, and had two automatic winding gear ratios, which were automatically engaged as the mainspring tension increased.
