"I was looking for a very special watch - SUBAQUA Venom 6200 / A07 and was having a hard time finding it so as with anything I started looking for it through google. I came across your site and with a few emails I was ready to purchase from Michael. I wish all of the things I buy on the net are this easy to purchase and have great customer service like Unique Mechanics provided. I hope to do more great deals with Unique Mechanics.

"I was just going to email you...I received it yesterday. I am beyond satisfied. I asked you for a low edition number as this watch was a LE of 500, I was expecting to get something in the 200's and would have been very satisfied with that, however...you sent me #024 of 500! I was very pleasantly shocked and had to re-read the number under magnification several times to make sure I was seeing it correctly. WOW, is all I can say! Your customer service and responsiveness is also above and beyond most. You've earned a customer for life. If you need a reference feel free to send them to me or simply show them this email. Regards " - Michael Maniscalco

During their years of tireless creative urge, Robert and Charles Ingersoll, the founders of one of the oldest American watch manufacturers, established many milestones in the field of developing pocket and wrist watches. They followed an ambitious plan that incorporated on the one hand, to offer watches to the broad public, and on the other hand to offer reasonable prices whilst maintaining real quality. In 1892, thanks to Henry Ford, they succeeded in developing an automated method of production, first for pocket watches and later for wrist watches. Alongside the existing handcrafted production of Ingersoll watches, an automated production of watches was established.
With high quality and precision, at the very reasonable price of 1 dollar (which was a days wages at the time) the so-called "Dollar-Watch" was born. The Dollar-Watch became so popular that about 1 million of these watches were produced. Even Theodore Roosevelt mentioned that during his hunting trip in Africa he was described as "the man from the country where Ingersoll was produced".
The success of the "Dollar Watch" (also called the "Yankee") from then on was amazing. The Ingersoll brothers had to adapt to increasing production and increasing production plants. Meanwhile, the product range had been expanded by some technical pioneering refinements. Also the production of the smallest pocket watch ever seen had begun. In 1919 the Ingersoll brothers developed the first watch with the so called "night design", the "Radiolite" with luminous dial.
