Bought a used & abused Ingersoll Mickey Mouse watch & took a really long time to have it restored. Re-polished its case & cloudy crystal, jolting it back to life and revealing the rich color watch dial. Worn with a brand new red lizard grain leather strap. Thank you for looking!

    Nice restore, looks good, Btw I haven't posted a fact about these, but since you've been so kind as to post this one I'll pass it along. These were first produced in 1958 according to the reference books and sold up into the late 60's but were also reissued in 1969-71 with the larger "Mod" watches. The numbers above the 12 will proper date these. Again very good looking "Mickey" watch. Thanks for sharing. Kerry

    Hi Kerry (kerry10456),

    Thank you for sharing with me the tip! I've attached 2 images of the numbers above the 12. My guess is the 8 Digit was first produced?

    You are correct, the earlier models were massed produced in 1958-60 and sold through the mid to late 1960's the "Name" only style were made from 1960-68, and were packaged the same, both could be found for sale, sometimes side-by-side.

    DrakeandBarnett, here's the link to mine with the proper packaging if you wish to see them together.
