    I have owned this vintage clock for 35+ years, I was told by my Father it's well over 50 yrs. old. I know of 5 to exist and they are all in my family. For years I have tried to find more information but have been unable to find anything or anyone who has seen one like it. I also have a Bulova wrist watch with the same image/theme.

    My Dad was a watchmaker for Bulova for 56 years as you would imagine I have some pretty old new Bulova watches.

    Has anyone ever seen this and can anyone tell me more about it.

      Very Nice we have a few Clock and watch experts on CW and they should know something I would think .

      Thanks, I would love to find out some more information.

      Yes nice clock, but not 50 years old....more like 20-25 years old. These and the wristwatches depicting same graphics are post 1990, closer to 1995. The "Disney Collection" depicts series sold through the Disney Store and Theme parks. I have the NOS wristwatch, pocket watch, the clock I have is "Used"
      Note indicator, the country of "Germany", not "West Germany" as a piece would be labeled pre 1989, before the Berlin Wall came down.
      Thanks for sharing yours, enjoyed seeing this nice example.

      Just another indicated to dating...the copyright logo "Disney" is post 1987, prior to this was WDP, before that WDE
    5. kerry10456 kerry10456, 6 years ago
      Here's chart showing Disney copyright logos and other markings:
      1929-1939 Walt Disney Enterprises

      1930- 1936 Walt E. Disney and Walter E. Disney on foreign licensed merchandise.

      1939 - 1971 Walt Disney Productions, or W.D.P.

      (1943-64: Postal zones started showing up on manufacturer's addresses)

      1946-1951 "Made in Occupied Japan"

      (1964 Zip codes were added to the postal system)

      1971 W.D.P. and WDP were eliminated and only Walt Disney Productions was used
      1986 Walt Disney Co.
      1987- Present Disney

      WOW! Thanks for all the great information kerry10456. You have also refreshed my memory time line, the confusion was due to having too many items, hard to remember when I got them. I do remember my Dad stating these were samples provided to Bulova for the purpose of trying to win the manufacturing bid.
      Pretty surprised I don’t see more of this style out there being it's a great concept, in my opinion. THANKS AGAIN.
