    I found this pocket watch which appears to be a prototype of the Disney Three Little Pigs Pocket Watch which was produced by Ingersoll in the 1930's. According to the book "Comic Character Clocks and Watches" by Howard S. Brenner, Ingersoll produced a small number of these prototypes to show to Disney executives who rejected it in favor of the version that was produced. This is also confirmed by the book "Comic Character Timepieces" by Hy Brown.

    Does anyone have any further information about this watch. Is this the only known example or are there others? Does any else have one?

      Cool, but (personally) I've never quite believed the "reference" books on this and a couple others, they make reference to. I've never had an opportunity to hold and examine one so never could say "Yea or Nay" for my opinion. I think either way, very neat watch to own. Again ....Very Nice and neat, hopefully you can find verification and pass alone to us unknowing the results.
