This is the rare and famous 1933 Ingersoll 'Wirelug' Mickey Mouse Watch. It is the first Mickey Mouse wristwatch that was made.
There were two versions of this watch. Shown above is the rarer version where the large numbers 5 and 7 on the watch appear above Mickey's knees.
The original watch has five links in the band. The face of the watch has a glass crystal. Also shown is the original box the watch came in. Although the box shows Mickey with white gloves and red shoes, on the watch Mickey appears with yellow gloves and yellow shoes.
After the watch was released the box was changed. This is next version:
This is called the "critter" box due to all the characters shown on the outside cover.
The third version of the original watch came in this blue box. It says "Ingersoll Mickey Mouse" at the bottom and features a large picture of Mickey Mouse. This time the picture of Mickey on the box matches the version on the watch with the yellow gloves and yellow shoes.
In 1935 Ingersoll revised the watch. One of the distinguishing features from the original watch is that Mickey's knees are now even with the 7 and 5 on the watch face.

In 1952 Ingersoll created this watch. It has a bright pink band and pink numbers on the watch face.
The watch came in a bright yellow box promoting the Ingersoll Mickey Mouse wrist watch.
