    For all you football (American) fans that are anticipating a winning season for your favorite team, I'm posting three "sports timers" manufactured by two "dollar watch" companies.
    The one on the left is a PASTOR BASKETBALL FOOTBALL Timer manufactured by E. Ingraham in 1960.
    The center one is a True Time Teller Foot Ball Timer, in an octagon case, manufactured by The New Haven Clock Co. in 1940. (this could also be soccer/foot ball).
    The one on the right is, The New Haven Sports Timer & watch, with a football & basketball player on the dial, in an octagon case, manufactured in 1925, Patent Pending.

    Good luck with your teams,
    Dave

      Just learned something here. I didn't know, back then, that you could get a stop watch with images on them of football and basketball players!
    7. pw-collector pw-collector, 2 years ago
      Signaholic, In the George Townsend book, "The Watch That Made The Dollar Famous" there is an advertisement shown from Kurzon Company, 333-335 W. Madison St., Chicago with the New Haven Sport Timer advertised as:
      $2.50 Sport Timer
      No.A229, White Dial, Octagon case, combination watch & stop watch. Each.....$1.63

      Hey pw, gotta tell you this story. We were at Brimfield last week and I saw guess what? Yep, the New Haven Sports Timer watch! They wanted $100 bucks for it and it didn't work. I passed on it but thought what are the odds??
    21. Signaholic Signaholic, 2 years ago
      After all,, these were sold for a dollar back in the 1920s.
    22. Signaholic Signaholic, 2 years ago
      I probably would've bought it, if it had worked however.
    23. pw-collector pw-collector, 2 years ago
      Signaholic, nice story. I would have passed also.
