This pocket watch was made in 1932 by Ingraham to commemorate George Washington as 'The Patriot' and celebrates his 200th Birthday. The movement number 2 32 (Feb 1932) coincides exactly to 200 years after he was born on the 22nd February 1732. The original brass fob has engraving matching the case back design.
I have also posted 2 pictures of the watch and fob showing the condition before I managed to cleaned off possibly 80 years of dirt! Hope you all enjoy this posting.
Note : For comparison, Dave (pw-collector) has also posted a very nice example of the same watch here : http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/61147-e-ingraham-patriot
