Whilst I am talking about Ingersoll watches, here is one of mine. I bought it off eBay for a fiver, as I thought I could do with an early wrist watch in my collection. Especially at that price 😉
This Ingersoll was made in Britain with a Swiss movement, and has nothing to do with the American Ingersoll watches – apart from the brand name that was sold on …
Looks like the movement is an AS, calibre 734. I can’t find anything about it on Google… No jewels, and you can see that the balance cap is steel.
The top plate is marked “Ingersoll” and “Swiss Made”, but, as Ingersoll at that time was a British company, it’s most likely that the movement was an AS.
Steel cap for the balance.
The gear train.
Time for a good clean.
And the movement can be put back together.
I quite like the case. Just from the looks, I’d say 1920s – 30s, but I could be wrong.Side view. Quite a high case with a big crown.
