1946 - early '60s, Ingersoll - US Time

Due the involvement of the United States in the WW II, for three fully years, from 1943 to '45, the production of Mickey Mouse watches ceased.

It started again in 1946 with a new type of rectangular case, without small seconds display and a more modern Mickey image (following its evolution on the movies).
Even if the company was now US Time, Ingersoll name was left for the most, on the dials or box packagings of these post war watches.

In the early sixties the Ingersoll Mickey Mouse character watch looked to be in decline.
But it was just moving to a second youth .........

"1933 Chicago Fair very first Ingersoll Mickey Mouse" incorrect!!

Ingersoll made a pocket watch that dates back as far at 1922

Love your site! My watch is a
#24) Early '50s Ingersoll US Time red numerals, elongated lugs, dial printed Ingersoll.

There's a note that it had a round case. Is that true? How much are these worth approximately now.

YoBo,
1933 Is the correct date of Mickey watches, the reason for your confusion is simply Ingersoll used what movements and casings they had left over and put the Mickey dials on these.
Mickey watches made their debut at the Chicago's Worlds Fair in March 1933
