Nice, small watch from US TIME, the company that became TIMEX. US TIME used to be called Waterbury Watch Company, and in 1922 Waterbury bought Ingersoll, after Ingersoll went bankrupt following the recession at the end of WWI. For many years, Waterbury and then US TIME manufactured watches branded as Ingersoll. It is uncertain when this watch was made. The first TIMEX branded watches sold to consumers were released in 1950s, but I'm virtually certain US TIME continued to make watches with Ingersoll on the dial after the introduction of TIMEX brand. So, it is probably 1950s.
