1947/1948 Ingersoll-US Time Snow White Watches

In 1933, the Ingersoll Watch Company produced their first Disney character watch--Mickey Mouse--which met with great success. Over the years, in addition to the Ingersoll name, the company would also sell watches under the Connecticut Watch Company brand, U.S. Time, and Timex. It would have the Disney license from 1933 to the 1960s. (Timex would also return to produce a series of watches in the 1990s.)

The first Snow White watch ever made was released in 1947. "© W.D.P." Rectangular case. Manual wind. The original retail price was $4.95.
