INGERSOLL is the true original American watchmaker, with heritage dating back to 1892 in Michigan.
The brand was born during an era when artisans handcrafted timepieces and where craftsmanship and innovation were a given. Today’s consumers still embrace Ingersoll’s brand legacy that maintains a firm stand for quality, accuracy and affordable luxury.
INGERSOLL is one of the first brands to be truly made in the USA, with factories in Connecticut and offices in New York City.
INGERSOLL is globally recognised for many ‘world firsts’ for reputable watchmaking. It brought us the first LUMINOUS watch in 1920; the RADIOLITE that ‘told the time in the dark’. The first DOLLAR WATCH launched in1899 and in 1933 the world’s first MICKEY MOUSE watch contributed towards global success.
INGERSOLL gained a worldwide reputation when Theodore Roosevelt was famously referred to as ‘the man from the country where INGERSOLL watches are made’.
