Just bought a new watch – the Ingersoll Limited Edition Bison No 6 Men’s Automatic Watch.
With a large 52mm face, it’s like wearing a clock on my wrist.
Definitely for big timers like me ha ha!
Ingersoll has a heritage in watch production dating back to 1880 when it was started in America by sons of a farmer in Michigan – 21-year old Robert H Ingersoll and his brother, Charles Henry.
With Henry Ford’s help, a production line was set up in 1892 and production began.
Their pocket watch became famous because Ghandi wore it.
It wasn’t until the 1920’s when Ingersoll made a real push to wrist watches.
Ownership of the company has changed hands several times since but the brand still enjoys a good reputation.
