Item:223520368929Vintage Ingersoll 1933-34 Mickey Mouse Sears Wire Lug Mechanical Wrist Watch Working Rare This style of watch is recognised as the ‘Sears’ version. The case has the geometric art deco style Bezel with fixed wire lugs. This case was only used on the early models, so it’s relatively rare. Early Disney marketing at its best! Classic, niche... and very collectible! In working condition and keeping pretty good ‘Mickey Mouse’ time, but there are no guarantees. The hands set and it winds up properly. The little Mickeys rotate on the seconds dial. In very good overall condition, with marks and wear commensurate with age and use. Chrome in very good condition with light surface wear. Metal link bracelet with two hand painted chrome Mickey Mouse charms, seven links and original catch. Dial in very good condition. Hands in very good condition, there is light paint loss. Original vintage low domed mineral glass has some light marks but is mostly clean and clear. Measures approx 32mm in diameter (excluding crown and lugs) Please see photos, thanks. Postage in UK via Special Delivery. Worldwide shipping will be via courier, TNT, FedEx etc with full insurance. ——— This was the start of the Mickey Mouse Watch phenomenon.... While it was marketed for kids (generations of children have learned to tell the time with them). But what made Mickey Mouse Watches a pop culture phenomenon was the adult stars that wore them. Grace Kelly, Sammy Davis Jr, John Lennon, Andy Warhol, Lauren Hutton, and television talk show host Johnny Carson all sported Mickey Mouse watches. Astronaut Wally Schirra brought one aboard the Apollo 7 spacecraft that orbited the Earth in 1968. Astronaut Gene Cernan took his Mickey to the moon on Apollo 10 in 1969. More recently they have appeared on screen with Tom Hanks wearing one in the movies Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code. The character Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) wears a Mickey Mouse watch which was a present from his parents.Condition:Used, Brand:Ingersoll, Character Family:Mickey Mouse, Year of Manufacture:1933-1934, Model:Mickey Mouse, Modified Item:No, Case Size:32 mm, Strap Colour:Silver, Caseback:Solid, Display:Analog, Style:Cartoon/Novelty, Country/Region of Manufacture:United States, Case Finish:Polished, Dial Style:12-Hour Dial, Movement:Mechanical (Hand-winding), Features:Acrylic Crystal, Strap Type:Bracelet/Link Band, Case Colour:Silver, Gender:Unisex, Watch Shape:Round, MPN:Does Not Apply, Strap Material:Chrome Steel
