This brings us up to the 1948-49 Birthday series Mickey Mouse watches. Ingersoll (US Time) made 10 different characters for the celebration of Mickey Mouse's 20th birthday. They include the following characters: Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Daisy Duck, Donald Duck, Bambi, Pinocchio, Bongo the Bear, Jiminy Cricket, Dopey and Jose (Joe) Carioca.
The 1948's all the character were smaller and fit inside the inner circle. the "WDP is located under the character. The 1949's , the character is a little larger and hangs over the inner circle, with the "WDP" to the right of the character. In addition the 1949 watches were also offered with a 'luminous" dial and hands.
The 1948 was the first time Mickey was offered with the blue strap and wasn't offered again until 1976 .
Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy looking at these.
