Limited Edition 1940s Ingersoll US Time Timex Mickey Mouse Watch

Ingersoll Mickey Mouse watches are some of the first models ever produced, featuring Disney's most beloved character. This is one such model, dating back to the 1940s, with a long history of time-keeping.

The watch is powered by a functional mechanical movement that has been serviced by our watchmaker. The accuracy of the watch is comparable to models dating back to its time. When purchasing this watch, keep in mind that 1940s watches are not as accurate as the ones in the present time, since their movements were not as advanced in technology as today.

This Limited Edition Ingersoll watch is a beauty to have on the wrist nonetheless. Its design is truly timeless. And to make it even more spectacular, the watch comes with an exciting feature in Mickey Mouse watches: Mickey's hands act as time indicators.

If you're a vintage Disney enthusiast and want to add one of the first Mickey Mouse watches ever created to your collection, then this model might be just what you're looking for. The watch will come in a beautiful box, carefully protected, and wrapped.

Ingersoll Mickey Mouse Watches 

When it comes to vintage Mickey Mouse watches the first ones that were ever produced were those made by Ingersoll. You are actually looking at a watch that shows the beginnings of Mickey Mouse watch history. 

We have written an article about antique and vintage Mickey Mouse watches here, so make sure to check it out for more similar models.

The first Ingersoll watches, called "Universal" were introduced in 1892, supplied by the Waterbury Clock Company. They were, in reality, small spring-driven clocks, about three inches in diameter and over one inch thick. These were put into watchcases with pendants that carried bows and crowns like contemporary watches.
