In an earlier posting, I mentioned the similarities of the alarm clock and this pocket watch.
This is the Ingersoll Three Little Pigs Pocket Watch produced for Disney by Ingersoll/Waterbury in 1934. After the big success of the Mickey watches in 1933 and the release of the film , Ingersoll and Disney both thought these would be a big hit. Well they didn't sell very well at all, parents made note, the character was to scary for a small child and thus, poor sale. Which makes them very collectible today. The series include an alarm clock, a wristwatch and this model pocketwatch, all three are a different graphic and equally rare to find today.
Thanks for looking.
