Hello Friends & Fellow Collectors. There weren't many "Character" watch produced in the early 1960's, but Bradley Time seem to be the leader during this "Slow" period. They (Bradley Time) did produce several Hanna-Barbera characters during this time and this one is one of those. I have a few of the others posted, and some of those are hard to find and most examples you see today were "Well Loved" by their previous owner, namely a child from about 8-11 years old.
But I have seen and own a few nice examples of these. This brings us to this piece. I never seen another other than this one. I can, without any reservations, that this has to be the first variant of the Flintstone watches ever produced.
This Flintstones watch was produced by Bradley Time with a Swiss made mechanical movement and copyright to Hanna-Barbera production, circa 1964. The depiction of Fred and Pebbles are crisp and looks as if Fred is enjoying watching Pebbles play with the stone age toys. lol.
Thanks for looking, and Hope you've enjoyed seeing this example.
