In 1934, with the advent of the Ingersoll Mickey Mouse Watch popularised in the US, the British market was issued its own version of the now famous Mickey Mouse character by Ingersoll Ltd. of London. The 'Balloon Trousers Mickey Watch' the first of two versions depicted a straight legged running Mickey with long snout, red balloon trousers, five fingered hands, proportionately small orange shoes and a seconds disc with three walking Mickeys. The words 'Mickey Mouse Ingersoll' are printed on a glossy paper with 'Foreign printed below the Nº6 - Extract from mickeymousewatches.co.uk.

    George, Tid-bit trivia info. The words "Foreign" was a requirement for watches produced in Germany for Ingersoll LTD, these movements were made under contract in Germany, between the wars, by the UMF/Ruhla factory and because of this (as with all goods made between the wars in Germany) the dials had to be marked Foreign.

    Kerry, the UMF/Ruhla is probably a better grade movement than the standard Ingersoll of the same era but a lot more difficult to get parts nowadays and to restore!

    Very cool to see! I didn't even know the English had their own Mickey version.

    Perry, I'll chime in, George has a couple different ones of the English versions, there is another 1936 version and matching wristwatches , strictly "English" marketed and distributed. I believe he has them all posted. BTW I just conversed with George and he is sending one of these to me, mailed out yesterday. So now I'm a PROUD owner of one of these also. :-)
