  1. The clock shown was made by Schmid. Schmid-Schlenker made wall and table clocks until they were bought out and stopped production about 1990. They were in business from 1935 to around 1990. ...
  2. Great watch George! In the Jay Ward cartoons, Shep was light grey in color. Very few of the watches were actually made where Shep is actually grey. He was too hard to see against the dial and...
  3. OK. Sorry for the confusion. Bradley was owned by Elgin. I couldn't figure out why Bradley was mentioned so much when they had nothing to do with this watch.
  4. Gotcha. I can't type even when my fingers don't wander. :-) "Most of these were made by Bradley Time Works in Hong Kong, but they had no shame in actually putting their name on the face of the wa...
  5. What Mickey did Bradley make in the early 60's?
  6. Thanks George! I'll get in touch with them. Maybe they can make us some custom ones! You will have to keep an eye out for your sister. Seiko & Citizen made some wind-up Hello Kitty watches in ...
  7. George, Thanks. Any idea if they have other characters? I have a couple Rolex watches I would like to transform. :-)
  8. George, This is AWESOME! Was the dial custom made for you or are they being sold in bulk?
  9. Nice George! One of my favorite set of character watches made. Thanks for sharing.
  10. I didn't realize Big Birds hand was in the way until I uploaded the video and had all the watches put away. ;-(
  11. I'm sure I have another. :-)
  12. I wish they would have made more nodders! I would love to see a Count nodder!
  13. Check out this link :-) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgJW4LxSAMk
  14. Very nice George!
  15. Love it!
  16. Thanks for sharing. Love the back on this version! I think the dial has been re-finished. Still a great piece just wanted to let you know.
  17. I have a couple of them. I can send you a photo of them and a link for others if you want. My email can be seen by clicking on my username. I don't believe we are suppose to discuss values here.
  18. Made in the 70's by Helbros and is a hard watch to find. The band is the original.
  19. Very cool. I would guess early 40's. Probably 42-43.
  20. "Cincinnatus" c.1894
  21. No problem. It's a cool watch!
  22. Yes, sorry pattymanwaring. Feel free to delete all my comments not related to your watch. I've been trying to get ahold of Kerry via email, but have been having technical issues.
  23. I have a stem for you. Please email me your address. I am getting your emails but when I send them to you, they are getting bounced back to me.
  24. OK...back to normal...LOL....wonder how that happened???
  25. The watch is rare and the band is rarer. :-) Great item! Be careful you don't lose the hands with the cover missing.

  27. Just found an ad for Pinocchio & Pooh from 1971. These appear to have been made in conjunction/as a promotion for the grand opening of Walt Disney World in Florida. I thought the box on my Pooh watc...
  28. That's for sure. So many goodies. I go through them at least 5 times during the auction and seem to see something new every time!
  29. Here is a link to one for reference: http://www.hakes.com/item.asp?Auction=192&ItemNo=58548
  30. Another great one! Thanks for sharing!
  31. I believe they are newspaper ad proofs. Very cool! Love the Wolf!
  32. Very nice! Congratulations on a great find!
  33. Very Nice!!
  34. Oh, I finally found an original ad for Betty!
  35. That's a rare list! I'm currently just searching for original boxes for Tom Mix, Betty, FDR and a few early world's fair. What Ingersoll Coke and mickey alarm are you looking for?
  36. Nice one George! So what did you guys decide on the top 10 pocket watches?
  37. I believe this is an E. Howard movement made by Waltham. It is unusual that there are no makers markings. When Keystone acquired the rights to use the Howard name they contracted with Waltham to m...
  38. Very nice! Thanks for sharing!
  39. mickeysmagic, I agree. I know my father and I had more information somewhere, it's just a matter of finding it. The "mystery" involved in collecting character watches, especially from the 70's,...
  40. Thanks all! Much appreciated! No serial numbers, writing, date.....anything. Going to make it a nightmare to try and figure out. I hope we can find more color catalogues!
  41. mickeysmagic, Any chance we could get a photo of the movement? Thanks, Adam
  42. Got my set last week. They are fantastic!
  43. Anything is possible. I thought that the ad made it sound like Louis Newmark was the creator. "obtained from all good stores or DIRECT from Louis Newmark" I've been doing a little research on...
  44. It's possible I have more. Will email them to both of you if/when I find them. I've seen some that I believe are thrown together using misc. parts too. I started to wonder if someone didn't fin...
  45. I'm thinking there has to be some way to date these by the paint scheme. Just trying to figure it all out will be the problem. So many little variations. Some have the yellow feather too with red s...
  46. Just got done with the new forum layout!
  47. I'm going to shut the forum section down and just redo it today...to a nice layout. They will be up soon!
  48. It's pretty generic, but I guess you get what you pay for (it was free) I will probably look into getting a nicer forum layout when I have the time.
  49. George, I opened the forum yesterday, but I am still running tests and messing around with the layout.
  50. Thanks George. I've been adding some stuff the past few days. It's going to be a work in progress for the next couple years I think. lol Too many watches and not enough time! :-)
