If you remove the back, you should see a fast-slow adjustment somewhere close the balance(the big wheel that moves the fastest). Use a toothpick, and move it a tiny, tiny bit toward "fast." It will take some trial and error over a few days to find the best setting.
Just know that your Ingersol is what's called a "dollar watch." These were inexpensive, mass produced watches that were so named because, from about 1890 to 1950, they sold for $1. They have an imprecise pin-lever escapement and are not adjusted for positions or temperature. Thus, you won't get great timekeeping out of them.
To get the best time keeping, you need to be as consistent as possible with them. Wind the watch all the way up every day at the same time(you can't overwind a watch, so don't worry about this). Wear it the same amount of time and in the same way(i.e. same place on your body), and when you take it off at night be sure you always leave it in the same position(face up or face down).
Doing this, and with the regulator tweaked, you can probably keep the timekeeping to within 30 seconds a day. If you're inconsistent in your habits, 2-3 minutes a day is the best you can hope for.

I used a trusty old 231C for years! I remember one day one of my coworkers bought a brand new snap-on when my IR was about 3 years old. He tightened a nut as hard as he could. My IR ripped it off without trying. I put it back on and he couldn't get it off no matter what he did! He gave it back to snap-on and bought an IR! :^)
