This is probably the first wristwatch ever made with an image of a full bodied Ballerina on the dial. Produced by Ingraham/Bradley in 1956, the dial features a Ballerina with animated legs which are the hour and minute hands. Hence, during the course of the day, the Ballerina's legs will be in various positions depending on the time. This watch also comes with the original wrist band made in half leather and half stretch cloth material.
Bradley also made two other wristwatches with a Ballerina on the dial, in 1962 and 1964 respectively. Sadly, the animated legs features have been omitted from the design and hour and minute are indicated by ordinary watch hands.
