When it comes to our giveaways, we try to keep things fairly recent – we review a watch, and then if a brand decides that it can be passed along to our readers, we’ll get it slotted into a giveaway fairly quickly. Other times, though, a watch slides to the back of the drawer and gets overlooked. That’s what happened with this month’s giveaway. I was going through cleaning out some things, and came across the Ingersoll Boonvile we reviewed three years ago, and realized it was high time to get this in a giveaway.
Here we are for the mid-July edition of Watching the Web, where Patrick or I get to point out interesting watch related articles that we have run across on the net, and highlight the most popular articles from our own site as well. This week, ABTW featured the exact type of watch that made me into a fan of high end watches, Worn and Wound has a nice watch from the other end of the price spectrum, and Wound for Life has an article on the benefits of silicon (in your watches). From our own pages, the Mark Carson Ka La GMT, Patrick’s Historical review of the watches of Jacques Cousteau, and an older article on Ingersoll watches were all popular.
If you recall, when I started out writing about the Ingersoll brand, I noted that they were the first company to be licensed to create time pieces with Mickey Mouse on the dial. Today, we’ll be having a look at our first Ingersoll Disney piece, a pocket watch.
