  9. Can you take the back cover off and post (you can put up to 4 photos above) a clear photo of the movement. Also, what does it say between the center of hands & the 12 on the dial?
  10. I made my comment above by looking at the box which is for an eclipse by Ingersoll, but I think the watch is made by New Haven & is in an incorrect box. The photo you posted is a little fuzzy. I think...

  43. A clear photo of the back plate clearly showing the patent dates would help. From what I see, it is an Ingersoll manufactured around 1910.
