This Ingersoll "Dollar Watch" was advertised as a "Nurse's Watch".
The watch is a small, 1.25 inches in diameter, ivory enameled case, a "0" size movement, with patent dates of July 2, 1918 & Nov. 14, 1922.
Attached to the stationary bow of the watch, is a ivory enameled button with a 10 inch retractable chain and a pin so it can be attached to the nurse's uniform. The watch can easily be pulled down to read the red seconds hand as it records accurately each pulse beat.
The retractable button pin was made by Ketcham & McDougall, East Orange, N.J.
The little 3.28" x 1.62" x 0.86" box (which I refer to as a "coffin box"), has a patent date of Nov. 1918 embossed on the bottom.
Thanks for looking,
