This vintage pocket watch was made by the Ingraham Watch company. Dating to the 1930s, this is called a lapel watch. In excellent working condition, the brown "French Enamel" watch was part of Ingraham's Aristocrat line. The brown enamel mechanical watch has a silver face with Arabic numerals and black hands. The enamel is framed in chrome. The watch stem has a silver loop to which a brown leather strap is attached. The end of the strap has a brown leather, basket-weave designed button to hook into a button hole.
This watch comes in its original box with great graphics on the front. A derby clad man stands at a train station looking at his watch while a woman in a dashing hat looks on. The brown and yellow box is marked "LAPEL WATCH Ingraham Artistocrat Clock Company Fifth Avenue New York". The end of the box has the color as red so either this is a really dark red or the box was mismatched.
This mechanical watch is in excellent working condition. There is a scratch to the enamel across the left side on the front. Otherwise, this watch is in perfect, unused condition. The watch measures 2 inches in diameter. With the stem the length is 2 1/4 inches. The strap measures a little over 5 inches in length with the button. The box is in very good condition with some light bumping on the corners and a bit of wear along the edges. The graphic is clean and bright.
A great Father's day, graduate or gift for any watch enthusiast.
