    Hello Boys and Girls..... Today I thought I'd share the first issue Bozo Clown watch. Bozo was one of the most know clowns on television, first aired in 1949 and became extremely popular in the 1960's. The character was promoted by Capital Records.
    These watches support a Swiss made mechanical movement and only made for short term, circa 1962-63. Next issue was a full bodied graphic was produced with a clear disk seconds dial juggling bowling pins, this graphic was then changed to dial depicting same picture, but instead of standard style hands, the Bozo arms became the hour and minute hands.
    Thanks for looking
    Kerry

      Not really "Cartoon" but a character depicted in a story-tell books and records, first thing of it's kind....
    9. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Thanks Dave for the wonderful complement and support
    10. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Eye4....out take from Wiki...."Bozo was created as a character by Alan W. Livingston, who produced a children's storytelling record-album and illustrative read-along book set, the first of its kind"
    11. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Good Morning Mani....Thanks and big hugs :-)
    12. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Alan Livingston ... Owner of Capital records it seems ? Signed the Beatles ?
    13. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Another 1960's hit and fame :-), he must have been a great marketeer
    14. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Ok, so I looked at the cover of "Bozo on the Farm" record ... Was that the original artwork depicting Bozo ????

    16. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Eye4, here the original artwork
    17. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Ok ... They may have to recall the watches ... Artwork on watch is wrong ... Bozo has five fingers on each hand ...
    18. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      LOL....all good, bet recall won't happen, might be why only produced short time :-)
    19. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Maybe I was getting watches when younger, but they were not passing my quality control department ... When I was ten years old ... Lol
    20. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      "Sorry mom and dad, nice watch but I can't accept it ... The artwork is not accurate."
    21. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Must be the deal.....to strict.....but "errors" are worth more now...lol
    22. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Ok, my last question, then I will hang up ... I wonder why watches were not made with a generic watch and characters printed on the band instead ...
    23. eye4beauty eye4beauty, 6 years ago
      Visually, the dials interfere with the artwork ... Like a tree in front of a store sign ...
    24. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Sorry slow response Eye4, They did, the "Liberty" brand watches had several character, Davy Crockett as an example
    25. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
