It is has been a little while since I last posted here. I wanted to try and elucidate the history of the very early dollar watches of Ingersoll. As stories go (websites and PDF scanned copies of very old books), Ingersoll started his busyness of watches by ordering some pocket clocks (pocket watches with small clock movements) from the Waterbury Clock Co (possibly the `jumbo' model from before 1890) and the first Watch of Ingersoll in 1892 was (it seems) the Universal Watch (a slightly modified jumbo, with a Waterbury 2 inch clock movement). There is even an ad for this gold plated large pocket watch on this NAWCC website (which I appended here below). Now where I am looking for clarification is that someone said (an eBay seller) that the first 1000 Ingersoll watches had the inscription "The Universal Watch" and the remaining watches (not sure how many thousands in that first year) had no inscription on them (they would therefore be looking like some Waterbury Jumbo watch without a name on them - I suppose). Is there someone here who can confirm or deny this? I have come accross a couple of Universal Watches on the web, but have not come accross any such watch (on the web) with no inscription (unless their models/cases differ). So it would seem that either there were no such model without incription, or that maybe these model without inscription had a different case, or for some reason they all vanished quicker than the Universal Watch. Any help would be appreciated. I have inserted the picture from the NAWCC website ad here below. Many thanks.
