After the first introduction of Mickey Mouse timepieces to England in 1934, Ingersoll again in 1936 produced new variant of the pocket and wrist watches for the English market. These are commonly known today as 'Bearded Mickey's' in that Mickey Mouse appeared to have grown a 'Pink Beard'!
The watches are powered by UMF movements made in Germany and marked "Foreign" for the English market. Some collectors argue that these are the most attractive of all the early Ingersoll Mickey Mouse Watches.
As Mickey was not too famous in Europe in the mid 30s and also these timepieces were quite expensive at the time as toys for children, not too many were sold. Hope you have enjoyed this posting!
