I am not sure whether this pocket watch is authentic or just a modern fantasy reproduction piece. It has the same dial as a 1951 wristwatch by Ingraham.
Despite some staining on the right hand side of the dial between 2 - 5 O'clock, the print quality on the 'paper' dial is excellent . The movement says 'Made In USA' and has '9 57' engraved on the plate. I have not come across any write up on this pocket watch in any reference books. Any information will be very much appreciated.
Kerry 10456 has posted a fine example of the wristwatch version a few months ago and for ease of comparison and further details on Toppie the Elephant, this is the link :
Note : This watch appears to be original after all.
