Contents Origins Ingersoll Watch Company grew out of a mail order business (R H Ingersoll & Bro) started in New York City in 1882 by 21-year-old Robert Hawley Ingersoll and his brother Charles Henry Ingersoll. The Ingersoll brothers pursued ambitious aims: on one hand to sell watches to a broad public and on the other hand to offer reasonable prices while providing high quality. The company initially sold low-cost items such as rubber stamps.

Компания Ingersoll подчинилась необходимости: производство в короткие сроки было поставлено на военно-промышленные рельсы.
