    In my previous post of R.H. Ingersoll Early Dollar Watches
    (http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/154738-r-h-ingersoll-and-bro-early-dollar-watc?in=user), I featured the early "clock/watch" back winds that the Ingersoll brothers first sold in their mail-order catalog business. These were large, bulky and loud ticking. Through many changes they finally got a back wind & set pocket watch that was smaller and thinner. It was advertised as the Ingersoll Yankee Dollar Watch and described as: "It has a patent lever escapement; 240 beats to minute; hardened and polished lantern pinions; patent keyless winding a setting arrangement; runs 30 hours with but four turns of the winder; hour, minute and second hand; 18 size; strong case with snap front and hinged back. Nickel or gilt."
    Shown is an example of this watch description with the gilt, back wind & set Ingersoll Yankee.
    The last photo is for a size comparison with the early 35 size, clock/watch Triumph named watch.
    Thanks for looking,
    Dave

      Hi pw - love the watch but is your description all garbled? It's showing up quite strange on my screen. Even some of the letters are cut in half?

      Oops - never mind - it appears to have corrected itself when I submitted my comment - you can go ahead and delete these two comments. Thanks, Tony

      Thanks Tony (aghcollect) for the appreciation.
      When you get old like me, things tend to come out garbled and it takes awhile for it to clear up.
