Another early wrist watch.
This one is by E. Ingraham
Dial is marked:
MASTERCRAFT (beloe 12))
U.S.A. (above 6)
Movement is marked:
The E. Ingraham Co.
BRISTOL, CT. U.S.A.
PATENTS PENDING
11+8 (left corner)
Geo. Townsands book states that Ingraham made their first wrist watch in Dec. 1930.
The 11 + 8 puzzles me. If a date, would think Nov. 1908
Any comments welcomed.
Thanks for looking,
Dave (maybe I'll switch back to Fobs tomorrow, thanks to all for putting up with me)

    The case style would leave me to think late 30's (39) through the late 40's. Could the marking be 11 48 ? that would be consestant with the styling. Kerry

    Kerry,
    I think you are right, with a larger glass I can see a faint line to make the 4.
    The patents pending had me going for earlier.
    Thanks again Kerry,
