Friends don't let friends buy Invicta
some great Mickey watches here.
I've only got the one. Since I love divers and most of my collection is divers, I needed a dive Mickey.
Here you go.
I saw this on the bay today ... a digital Bradley Mickey from the 70s. Check it out:

G'day guys - just noticed this thread & thought I'd poke my head-in
This is my first ever watch! Friend's of my Mum & Dad went to Disneyland (the original & the best) when I was about 3 years old & bought me back this Mickey Mouse watch.
My Mum found it a few years back when she was going thru some old stuff that had been packed away.
Now believe it or not, this thing still works. I haven't timed it for accuracy but if I wind it up it gets going no problems at all. It's definately seen better days, and I considered having it restored but to be honest I think I like it as it is..... look how scratched the crystal is, like I buffed it with a piece of concrete
But to me, it looks like something that was well & truly loved to death.... I would have worn this watch everyday for nearly 7 years!
Here's a few pics.....
Still on the original plastic zulu type strap..... plastic, must have been as hot & uncomfortable as hell
The buckle, near mint condition.
It's a little bit bigger than what I like to wear nowadays..... here it is with the AD Tac
To give you an idea of the dimensions, the strap is a whopping 20mm & the watch itself has 10mm lugs!!!!
Here's the crystal :oops:
I have no idea what's under the hood (although it does say "swiss made" on the dial under all the gouges in the crystal) but at least the case is "dust proof" whatever the hell that means!!
ooops double post!

YES! I had the brown and gold version of this as a kid and I loved it. I recently got a hankering to track one down on ebay and the black and silver one is just slightly tougher to find.
I love the international flags on it. Makes me think of the International Showcase at EPCOT.
I have a pocket watch that I got at a yard sale years ago. I have wanted one since forever. I was member from tv of the original mickey mouse club with annette Funicello (?). Boy did I have a crush on her. Any way, I finally picked up this one. don't know any info on it. Curious if anyone knows info on these. I am currently selling it on ebay...economy got me way down.
But...I stumbled on this forum and am enjoying the posts, Mickey Mouse watches are special for those who realize this part of our history and childhood.
