In 1951, pocket watch case backs, embossed with the logo of the Festival of Britain, were added to 3 different pocket watches, namely, the Ingersoll Triumph model, the Ingersoll From Outer Space model and one model of the Smiths Empire, to be sold to the general public for 1 year only. Picture 3 is a close up of a 'Horse Brass' produced at the same time to commemorate the event.

    The tghing I remember about the festival was the saying Britain can make it !... but the British can't have it!!
    there was still restrictions on what Btrits's could have left over from the war . But they could and needed to export!
