The Ticka camera, manufactured by Houghton's Ltd. of London, England, was introduced ca. 1906 and offered for sale until approximately 1914. The Expo Camera Company of the United States licensed Houghtons to manufacture the Ticka camera, a watch-style disguised camera similar to its own Expo Watch camera, with notable differences being the engravings and monogram.
This page shows the appearance of the Ticka camera, but for in-depth information on its features, see the Expo Watch camera page.
Two USA patents for the Expo Watch camera are listed on the Patents page.
