When I was a very young boy- first day of school grade 1, my parents gave me a Micky Mouse watch, it was a ripper with a cloth band that was stripped blue white and red. Micky's arms were the watch's hands and his white gloves happily pointed the time out for you. At assembly they put us in our age groups and another boy my age came to stand beside me- he noticed my watch. "You got Micky!" he'd screamed, "I'll swap ya? I got lousy Pluto!" his band was Yellow and brown stripes and Pluto looked more like he was in pain than he was trying to tell you the time- something about the position he was in, I felt sorry for the other boy but I was not about to swap Micky for Pluto!
Anyone old enough may remember "EAGLE" a sort of comic and puzzel's and articles hard bound magazine, it was around in the 50's 60's and finished up about the very early 70ies (I prefered WHOOPIE another British publication that was just the funny stuff- MAD the US magazine sort of took it over here in Oz)
Well DAN DARE was in there from the first edition. This watch made in UK has him shooting a Dinosaure with his stunn gun on every beat and his rocket spins around in the seconds chapter at 6. The watch is mint I swapped a reasonably new Seiko 100 Sports for it, from the 1 and only previous owner, he'd had it in his bedside draw since he was a boy!
How about some other THEME watches? Surely some one has one? I bet there is at least 1 Pluto watch out there in as new condition sitting in someones bedside draw!
