5 DAY sale ENDS TUESDAY NIGHT! Vintage 1954 ROY ROGERS Trigger Wrist Watch RUNS Cowboy Rodeo Western Movie Star

Offered is this chromed case genuine Roy Rogers & Trigger character wrist watch from 1954 in complete, original condition. The face depicts Roy riding his trusty steed, Trigger, in their signature "rearing horse" pose. Roy's signature is to the lower left, and on the bottom of the dial it reads "made in USA". The original celluloid crystal is also present. The band retains its embossed western detail and the watch fastens with a silver "ranger" style buckle and tip. The watch DOES run...it winds smoothly and ticks loudly, however, it will stop from time to time, only to start up again when you pick it up. I was able to observe it keeping time for a period of about 6 hours, but in other instances, it would stop 2-3 hours in, only to resume after I picked it up and turned it over. I never have attempted to wind it fully, just to be sure that I didn't damage it in any way. I would assume it probably just needs a good cleaning and/or adjustment. This is a terrific find for the collector of Roy Rogers & Trigger memorabilia or that of the old movie westerns, in extremely rare "running" condition.

Measurements: Overall length: 7 1/2"; Width: a bit over 1" including the stem. This is likely a child's watch. I can wear it on my wrist, if buckled in the last hole. My wrist measurement is 5 1/2".

Condition: In very good vintage condition. The piece appears to be completely original and runs as described above. I would definitely take it to my watch repair and have it checked and cleaned. The band shows normal gentle wear for a piece of this age. I suspect that there was a keeper at one time, as there is a sewn pocket in the leather watchband for it, but it is not present. The face is still vibrantly colored, however it does show a bit of wear and possibly a bit of moisture mark on the lower right hand edge...probably from perspiration. While I've only opened the watch back for photos, it does not give any evidence of it ever being wet...no rust or other damage to note. There is slight wear to the underside of the watch, but otherwise the chrome is bright and without loss. The celluloid crystal shows a tiny bit of yellowing with age, but not a deterrent...mentioned for accuracy. All in all, super condition with only gentle wear.

Hallmarks:

Face: Roy Rogers & Made in U.S.A.

Watch Works: The E. Ingraham Co. Bristol, CT USA, Model 53

Circa: 1950s
