There are 2 different versions of this pocket watch, both produced by Ingersoll. The first version, shown on the left was met with disapproval from Eagle who commissioned the watch, because the wording "Ingersoll" was more prominent than the words "Dan Dare". A second production version has the word "Ingersoll" removed and "Dan Dare" larger.

    Derek, a big cheer for solving the mystery. I often wonder which version came first! (The Jeff Arnold pocket watch also has 'Ingersoll' and 'non-Ingersoll' versions for probably the same reason as you have stated.) Fantastic pair of Dan Dare watches and a stunning box. Thank you for sharing!
