Mickey Mouse Watch, Ingersoll, 1934 vintage
Complete, all original Mickey Mouse watch with original leather band, complete with early hollow leg Mickey escutcheons and original buckle. Watch has a nice original patina and authenticity to it that I have always found appealing. This watch was a gift to my father in late 1934/early 1935 when he was 11 years old. He wore it as a boy, but obviously took good care of it. My use of the watch has been limited to winding it up and setting time once or twice a year. The Stem winds the mainspring and adjusts time in a normal manner. Timekeeping accuracy is fair, with the watch losing time over the course of a day of running. Perhaps a service by a qualified watchmaker would bring it into more accurate timekeeping status. However I have been reluctant to do anything at all to disturb it. The leather band on the top clasp portion is delaminating for a small distance between Mickey's feet and the buckle but not particularly visible or objectionable when worn or displayed.
