1949 Ingraham Dixie Awesome 2 Tone Original Dial 18s Pocketwatch Runs N/r For Sale
Please read our payment and shipping terms thoroughly and ask any questions that you may have before offerding.
Age / Size: 1949 is the production date coded on the movement / 18 Size American is the size of the pocketwatch, with case diameter of about 50.5mm not including the crown or the bow.
Case Condition: VERY GOOD- this case features a fancy engraved bezel that does show some brassing and the rest of the case is in better shape than the bezel with minor wear- some surface scratches and a small ding or two.
Case Metal: Chrome plated throughout
Dial Condition: VERY GOOD PLUS or better and original- underneath a SLIGHTLY yellowed original crystal, this dial is just in SUPER NICE shape for a dollar watch that is 65 years old!!
Movement: Typical E. Ingraham 18 Size movement that was used for over 20 years or more.
Working / Non-Working: This watch does wind and set the time smoothly and the watch ran and kept about 1 minute slow over the 25 hours that I tested this watch sitting here on my desk. This is really a fine time test result for a dollar watch that is just coming out of long term storage! Service history is not known. My timekeeping tests are conducted as follows: set the watch to my computer clock (without trying to synch seconds) and then check back later against the computer clock- there is the potential for some small human error to be built into this testing method.
Extras: This is about as nice of an Ingraham DIXIE as you will find all these years later, from the case to the dial to the running condition- this one is a real find if you are a dollar watch collector!! Take a look at the dial on this watch- just a great looking original TWO TONE format with the black outer edge with the “knockout” style hour marker numbers. This one ran remarkably well for my time test for any dollar watch let alone one just coming out of long term storage. DO NOT miss out on this great looking Ingraham DIXIE from 1949--- !!!
