Ingersoll

One of the very first and most famous of the American Watch Brands, Ingersoll Watches was founded in 1882 by 21-year-old Robert Hawley Ingersoll and his brother Charles Henry Ingersoll. The very first Ingersoll Watches were hand made, combining precision workmanship and high quality at low prices. But Robert had a dream. He wanted to break the price barrier for watches and produce a watch for just one dollar, then the average daily wage of an American worker.

Working with Henry Ford, they developed an assembly line method of watchmaking and ultimately met their goal, a fine quality pocket watch that cost only a dollar.

In just twenty years nearly forty million dollar watches were sold, and Ingersoll coined the phrase "The watch that made the dollar famous!" Theodore Roosevelt mentioned that during his hunting trip in Africa he was described as "the man from the country where Ingersoll was produced."

Today Ingersoll produces some of the very finest watches in factories all around the world.
