It's been a busy couple days, I received a large box of pieces and parts for the Ingersoll Mickey Mouse Pocket watches. After digging through it all and putting this piece and that part over to the side. This is what I've put together. Out of all the many dials, this one with the large #5 & 7, had a different style of mounting plate than all the others. This made it more interesting as to match up a movement, case and hands, as this piece is a little bit smaller than the long stem to the left in photo #3 and a little bit larger than the short stem to the right. As I worked along, I found that everything about this piece was different than the others. The hands were either to large or to small, after digging through the box of goodies, I did find the ones that fit is piece, same for the embossed back and the basil.
Now that is all back together, I've concluded that there is "Three" styles casing for the 1930's Mickey Pocket Watches. With them setting side by side, you can see the difference. Until now I knew of the different dial configurations but didn't know of the third casing difference. With all three side by side , I found the backing plate from one to the other, any combo, was either to large or to small.
