Over the course of their highly successful careers, Robert and Charles Ingersoll -- founders of one of the oldest American watch companies -- are acknowledged to have reached many milestones in the development and sale of pocket watches and wrist watches.
In 1880, the two sons of Orville Ingersoll -- a farmer from Michigan -- founded their enterprise in New York by producing and selling various articles for which they believed there was a general demand. Until that time, pocket watches were expensive luxury items, available to an exclusive few, because their manufacture entailed a great deal of highly skilled labor.
Manufacturing high quality items under the motto of "One watch exactly like the other," they charged the very reasonable price of one dollar (a single day's wages at the time). This was how the so-called "Dollar Watch" or "Yankee" was born, of which over a million were produced. The advertisement for them, at the time, read: "The watch that made the dollar famous." The Ingersoll brothers achieved considerable success through their innovative sales policy.
The history of the United States is reflected in the Ingersoll legend. A legend that lives on!
