    Earlier today, fellow patron eye4beauty commented on the case back on the 1939 Ingersoll Donald Duck pocket watch. I answered his query and also added the Mickey Mouse had similar case back, but design was touch different. So here they are side by side for your comparison. The black enameled case is the Mickey , the nickel plated case is the Donald.
    Thanks for looking and hope you find this somewhat educational, along with fun
    Kerry
    After Thought: Added two more photos, the 3rd is "embossed" back cover for the Mickey,4th photo is the "embossed" backing cover for the Smiths/Ingersoll Donald Duck....made in England

      Very interesting ... womder why that would be ????
    5. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
      oddity same year, different graphics, but bet marketing dept. had some sound theory ...lol
      Thanks Eye4
    6. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 5 years ago
      Which one was actually made first ???
    7. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
      production would have been same time, just different line
    8. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 5 years ago
      Ok ... I think the back of the Mickey looks too similar to the actual watch face ... For the Donald, they probably wanted distinction between the front and back (even though they are different characters) ... So they put a fun "in motion" graphic of Mickey on the back of the Donald ...
    9. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
      LOL Eye4, here's something else to ponder....I've added 4th photo of the "Embossed" back cover
    10. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 5 years ago
      I like that version ...
    11. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 5 years ago
      That two faced Mickey version could really mess with your mind
    12. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
      edited one more photo to the array...lol the embossed back for the 1933-37 Mickeys
    13. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 5 years ago
      Hey ... as I sit on my rock, pondering why we just don't count from 1-365 each year and then start over .... Did anyone ever produce a two sided pocket watch ? Two working sides?
    14. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
      not to my knowledge , but I have several two faced wristwatches, a crown on each side and dual movement for setting dual time zones
    15. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 5 years ago

    16. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
