Ingersoll



Robert and Charles Ingersoll, the founders of one of the oldest American watch manufacturers established many milestones in the field of developing pocket watches and wrist watches. They followed an ambitious plan to offer watches to the broad public at reasonable prices whilst maintaining real quality. With high quality and precision, at the very reasonable price of 1 dollar the so-called "Dollar-Watch" was born. The Dollar-Watch became so popular that about 1 million of these watches were produced. Even Theodore Roosevelt mentioned that during his hunting trip in Africa he was described as "the man from the country where Ingersoll was produced". In 1919 the Ingersoll brothers developed the first watch with the so called "night design", the "Radiolite" with luminoious dial. In 1892 they succeeded to develop an automated production for pocket watches and wrist watches. alongside the existing handcrafted production of Ingersoll watches.
