Description

SCARCE HIGH GRADE "COMPLETE" WORKING AND KEEPING TIME:

DISNEY "EARLY" 1940's INGERSOLL/KELTON MICKEY MOUSE "CURVE" STYLE WRISTWATCH + SKIN TOP/LEATHER BACKED WRIST-BAND.

THE UNIQUE "CURVE" STYLING MAKES FOR A VERY COMFORTABLE FIT AROUND THE WRIST.
THIS VERSION IS MY FAVORITE VINTAGE DISNEY MICKEY MOUSE/INGERSOLL 1930's TO 1946 VERSION FOR WEARING ON A SPECIAL OCCASION.
THE ART DECO STYLE CHROMED CASE REALLY POPS THE LOOK OVERALL AND PEOPLE NOTICE IT ALL THE TIME WHEN IN PUBLIC.

This Mickey is a step up from the steel pin lever movement manufactured at the time for most of the Ingersoll Mickey Mouse line. This Ingersoll/Kelton known as their “Curve” style Wristwatch.
This version wristwatch comes with a single jewel balance and was found occasionally converted for adults, worn with either leather strap or matching chrome finished bracelet.

THE FULL LENGTH OF THE WATCH AND BAND END-TO-END TOGETHER IS APPROXIMATELY 9 1/4".

THIS WATCH VERSION WAS MANUFACTURED FOR ONLY 2 YEARS(1940, 1941) AND IS OFFICIALLY ONE OF THE LAST WATCHES MADE BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF OUR INVOLVEMENT IN WWII.
DISNEY HAD INVENTORY TO SELL AFTER THE END OF MANUFACTURING AND CONTINUED SELLING UNTIL THE THE SAME WAS DEPLETED.

THE WATCH IS IN OVERALL EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH MINIMAL COSMETIC AND/OR CONSTRUCTION DISTRACTIONS(MOSTLY AN UNDER-SURFACE CRYSTAL FLAW TO THE UPPER LEFT CORNER OF THE SAME-THE FLAW IS SMOOTH ON THE TOP OF THE CRYSTAL)

AUTHENTICITY IMPRINTS CAN BE FOUND ON THE DIAL FACE READING AS FOLLOWS:
INGERSOLL
MICKEY
MOUSE

W D ENT.

MADE IN USA(AT VERY TOP OF THE DIAL FACE)


I TESTED THE WATCH FOR A 12 HOUR RUN AND IT STILL HAD THE ACCURATE TIME DISPLAYED(AS GOOD AS IT GETS).

THERE IS NO GUARANTEE AS TO HOW LONG THAT SAME ACCURACY CAN BE SUSTAINED OVER MORE TIME. IF ONE OF THESE APPROXIMATE 70 YEAR OLD TIMEPIECES CAN KEEP ACCURATE TIME TO WITHIN 30 MINUTES OVER A 24 HOUR PERIOD, THAT IS CONSIDERED TO BE WITHIN AN ACCEPTABLE RANGE TO EXPECT BY VINTAGE WATCHMAKERS.

PLEASE NOTE: A vintage collectible timepiece will not keep as accurate a time as a modern quartz wristwatch or cellular telephone and nor should it be expected to. If total accuracy is what you desire or need, then there are many quartz watches available at a fraction of the cost.

Anything within 30 to 45 minutes in accuracy after 24 hours With the Kelton watch is considered excellent by vintage watchmakers.

PLEASE VIEW MY ENCLOSED PHOTO REFERENCES FOR THE BEST WAY TO APPRECIATE THE QUALITY OF THIS VERY SPECIAL WRISTWATCH FOR YOURSELF.
