2016 was such a storming success for the relaunched American brand Ingersoll that the challenge for the Zeon-owned company in 2017 was living up to last year’s popularity and fanfare.
Luckily it has built the Ingersoll house on rock, not sand.
The movements inside were upgraded last year almost unrecognisably from what they were previously, and such was the confidence that the brand had in these new movements that they offered lifetime guarantees for its customers.
The 44mm Hawley I04604 is our pick from Ingersoll’s 2017 offering, with the unusual presentation of the date and power reserve sub-dials catching our eye in particular.
This is a gem of an automatic watch with an extraordinary price tag of just £400.
