Incredibly preserved near 90 year old Mickey Mouse animated wrist created in 1938 for a grown Adult to wear by the Walt Disney Company. This is a real life preserved artefact that preceded the beginnings of the now legendary Walt Disney Company.This is the so-called "5 notches" version due to the five visible notches on either side of the large bezel on the front of the watch. The larger frame and bezel version were made especially for a grown adult to wear. The mickey mouse character inside the watch is INCREDIBLY well preserved and has not lost any of the original colour that it was produced in. As far as I know it has NOT been retouched and left in its original state by whomever owned it. This has "INGERSOLL MICKEY MOUSE" printed at the 3 o'clock position on the watch face, and has MADE IN USA emblazoned across the top of the face of the watch.
ENT are written underneath the watch makers name and stands for Walt Disney Ent. Which was an early version of the current Disney Company. There is a second hand located at the 6 o'clock position in between Mickeys legs which rotates to measure each second. The watch is not currently working as it seems to be overwound.
The stem does pull out and the time CAN be set though, so the mechanics are sound. Seems a simple enough task for a jeweller to get this working again as far as I can tell. The crystal of the watch shows some yellowing simply through time (its nearly 90 years old). But as you can see the face of the watch is in startlingly clear condition with vibrant black yellow and white colours present as the picture.
The interior has the ORIGINAL Ingersoll Mickey Mouse mechanism, which has the ORIGINAL metal ingrained date stamped onto the mechanism itself. The back plate has USA made and supplied ink stamp on the interior aswell (pictured).
Adding incredible authenticity to the item. Really is the olden days feel about it, made AND put together in 1930s America. This is a HEAVY SET watch.
Just like all quality watches in the olden days. The thickness will surprise you, and I have taken pictures from the side to demonstrate this. The case appears to be solid metal.The front of the metal bezel has held up well and seems to have been worn under a garment (the polish of the front suggests this). This is not a childs piece. This is a serious collectors specimen and should be preserved and treated as such.
Grab your chance to own a HISTORIC piece of american culture and Disneyana. The legendary Walt Disney company is steeped in American history and this is one of the pieces that is ingrained in 1930s America. The best thing about pieces like these are that a slice of history can be worn and carried around on your wrist for special occasions. There are many specialist jewellers in London that specialise in taking care of late 1930 american watches and will easy restore this to its original working pristine condition. This is such a historic piece it's well worth just keeping it in its current state as a authentically old Disney artefact.The item "Old & Vintage 1938 5 notches Ingersoll Walt Disney Mickey Mouse Animated Watch" is in sale since Friday, January 22, 2016.
