    Question New Acquisition And Questions

    Hello Everyone,

    Just Got This Pocket Watch From Ebay A Few Days Ago, And It Arrived Today.

    It's A "Whippet", With Patent Dates Of 1918 & 1922, And It Works Quite Well...Needs A Crystal And A Polishing, But Overall A Nice Watch...Does Anyone Have Any Idea Who Originally Made The Movement, Or Any Other Info On This Watch?

    Thanks In Advance!

    Not really...it's a very common style of dollarwatch made famous by Ingersoll, of which were made many many millions by a couple of strings of companies that ultimately turned into Timex. Its the first time I've heard the name "Whippet"; that's probably the model name.
