To be an informed buyer or seller of "Bradley Mickey watches, you need to know there was never a Bradley Mickey before 1971. I've been seeing several listings for 1940's through 1960's Bradley Mickey watches and clocks....NO WAY POSSIBLE !!!!!
From the conception of the Mickey Mouse watch in May of 1933, Ingersoll held the marketing and production rights of Disney characters watches. In January 1971, they gave up those rights and Bradley Time(Division of Elgin). jumped right in and was awarded the Disney contact. Bradley produced several different depictions of Mickey mouse, This is one of those many depictions(First style pocket watch). They also gave them a "retro" look and moved the seconds back into a sub-dial configuration. The watch fob could be purchase separately.
Thanks for looking and hope this has been informative and something that's put a smile in your heart.
