This is in response to Kerry's post of his 1942 Ingraham Pocket watch in original box (also a Lapel watch).
As the majority of my pocket watch collection, this one unfortunately does not have the original box, nor does it have the braided leather chain with a leather button on one end that comes with the watch.

This is another dollar watch also by The E. Ingraham Co. as is Kerry's watch. It is a 16 size movement but the minute marks, hour numbers & watch hands are reduced down so the time can be viewed through the 13/16" crystal. The back & front case cover are 1-7/8" across. The front & back covers are brass and the movement case is nickel.
The metal dial also has a hole & post for a seconds hand as Kerry pointed out on his. The dial is also marked: PAT. APPL'D FOR.
This movement is unique to me in that it has two dates stamped on it. The left side below the bronze color screw is stamped 4 36 (April 1936), the right side below the lower bronze color screw is stamped 9 36 (Sept. 1936). I can't remember seeing two manufacturing dates stamped on the same Ingraham movement.
These were advertised, (1940) advertisement, as a usual $1.50 value now $1.39. I think this was done because in the 1941 advertisement I noted on Kerry's watch, advertised his lapel style watch as, "A new, extremely smart looking watch of unusual modern design", and it sold for $1.39 also.
Thanks for looking, and a special thanks to Kerry for showing his example with the addressed labeled watch box.

    Dave, I've got a theory for you to think on. I also have a double stamped Imgraham, in the box and a warranty slip from E. Ingraham. I believe if you sent your watch back to the factory for some problem, they might restamp the movement when completed and mail back to you.

    Kerry,
    That is a realistic observation. Smith & Wesson used to do something like that when a gun was shipped back to them for repairs. Before returning it to the owner, they would stamp a star by the serial number on the butt frame, and on the frame under the left grip they would stamp a number i.e. 5.50 referring that the work was done in May of 1950.

    I have this watch but someone has taken a copy of the 1933? mickey mouse ingersoll face (which is what made me buy it, thinking it was the Ingersoll 1933? mickey mouse lapel watch) and placed it on top of this face. Not sure if I should try removing it or not. It is also missing a hand.
