    The pocket watch was made by Ingersoll in the late 1930s' to commemorate the 1939–40 New York World's Fair at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. The NYWF of 1939–1940 was the first exposition to be based on the future, with an opening slogan of "Dawn of a New Day", and it allowed all visitors to take a look at "the world of tomorrow".

    The watch dial depicts the silhouette of 'the Trylon and Perisphere' which were two modernistic structures, together known as the "Theme Center," at the center of the NYWF. The Trylon and Perisphere became the central symbol of the 1939 World's Fair.

    The watch case back has a colourful sticker with images of the Trylon and Perisphere. Part of the sticker has been rubbed off over the years but fortunately, most of the important graphics can still be seen.

    Hope you have enjoyed this postings!

      Very nice George! Thanks for sharing! Do you have the matching flip style clock?

      Adam, I try very hard not to get into collecting clocks, despite plenty of persuasion from Kerry! lol I am currently restoring a 1933 Chicago World's Fair pocket watch and will post it when it is ready!
