    This "oddball" caught my eye!

    Spent the weekend searching the google results for this Ingersoll, but nothing came close.
    Anybody have a idea what the "lever" is under the crown?Name:  2 bought small.jpg

    its called 'pinset'. the crown doesn't pull out, the pin is pushed in to set the watch.

    The pin is sticking out too far, I doubt if it's still doing the job.

    Here is an interesting thread on watchuseek from the year 2013 showing a few of those watches (and the pin)

    Thanks gentlemen, I can't wait to see it "up close and personal"!!!

    What threw me was that it's attached to a Ingersoll, not something I'd expect to see on a "dollar watch" :-0
