I believe this is my oldest Ingersoll Watch.
Robert H. Ingersoll & Bro began in 1881.
Their first watches were made in 1891-2 that they contracted with the Waterbury Clock Co. to make their first watches.
This one is marked on the dial:
TRIUMPH
R.H. INGERSOLL & BRO.
NEW YORK
The BIG case 2.55 inches across & 0.94 inches thick.
The movement is 2.03 inches across.
You need a big pocket for this one.
Edit: forgot to put backwind & back set, but you can see that.
Thanks for looking,
Dave
