PLATTSMOUTH SEMI-WEEKLY JOURNA1
MONL'AY. JUNE H. 19?0.
There's a Special Ingersoll
for Each of These Folks
DID YOU ever "get fitted to a watch? We
mean, did yc ever figure out exactly your ,
watch needs and then see if you were properly
There are a dozen or more different IngersoIJs
. varying in price, varying in purpose small watches,
jeweled watches, radium dial watches for night us
and so on. For instance, if you have an expensive
watch, you probably would choose a Radiolite for
$3.50. If you haven't a good serviceable watch,
you'd be Mcely to buy a 7-jeyel Reliance. The
dealer will help you to select just the one for you.
"Ingersoll" has always meant the lowest-priced
good timekeeper. Today, with present day costs
and the 1920 purchasing value of a dollar, $2.50 i3
the lowest price at which we can make a watch
while keeping up the Ingersoll standard of quality.
"Ingersoll" means "money's worth" whether it's for
the $2.50 Yankee or one of the Radiolites that tell
time in the dark, or for one of the jeweled watches.
Prices Include Government Tax
