This turned up when my parents were going through my Grandparents stuff back in the early 60's. My mother said it had been hers when she was a child. She was born in 1921. It is pretty complete and in excellent condition, considering it was used by a child. The box has a little wear and tear and says it was $1.00, when new. It needs an new crystal and 1big hand as well as the second hand. Are these parts difficult to find? Is it worth anything? Anything else I should add to it history before I pass it on to my son? Any help would be appriciate....

    I looked at both links. My box has $1.00 printed in it and none of the pictures I've seen do. Also, I thought I was missing a second hand at the bottom, but it looks like that whole dial went around. My fob is a bit different from the ones I've seen pictured, too.

    Yep -- Savoychina found it -- http://www.hakes.com/item.asp?AuctionItemID=15759

    The watch sold for $1600 -- but remember, condition is critical. Disney collectors are very picky. The one that Hakes sold was near-mint -- and it sold for well below the estimate, which shows that the value for a not-near-mint one would be even more greatly reduced.

    Their description -- "From 1933. Box is version with all-over character images of Mickey, Minnie, Clarabelle and Horace. Inside of lid notes "Price $1.00 Complete With Fob." Complete with separate two-piece insert as well as guarantee paper."

    So yours is missing the box insert and paper, as well as the lense. You do have a very good box, and an apparently very good fob.

    IMO, since it is a family heirloom, I would keep it as is, and try to put a photo of Grandma (wearing it would be the icing on the cake!) and write down the history. That will make it priceless to your son, and your grandchildren.
