    Hello Fellow Collectors. I just acquired this and it's a little rough around the edges, as we would say. Missing the second hand and the luminous hands are cracking and crumbling away, but with a little TLC and a few hours, this will be a great piece.
    For those that don't know who this is. Dan Dare was a big hit in the United Kingdom. This is his arch-enemy The Mekon. Can't have a Hero without a bad guy, lol. These guys were featured by Eagle Comics in the 1950's.
    This watch was made by Anglo-Celtic Watch Co. (Ingersoll LTD) in Great Britain.
    Thanks for looking,

      Thank You WARWAGON64, very appreciated
    12. crazycharacter, 4 years ago
      Let me know if original when you get it. All of the ones I have seen were fantasy pieces.
    13. kerry10456 kerry10456, 4 years ago
      Will do Adam, both me and George discussed the posting when listed, after looking at it heavily, decided better than 80% chance, lol. I'm hoping an original piece, was a reputable seller so fingers crossed.
      Thank you:
      WARWAGON64, Sean & Adam for stopping by

      your very welcome Kerry!!
    15. crazycharacter, 4 years ago
      Have you seen the person on Etsy from the U.K. that sells the fantasy Smiths/Ingersoll watches? Have you ever bought any? I am curious about the quality. There are a couple that I like, but I'm afraid the pictures may make them look nicer than they actually are. Their prices are somewhat reasonable for them.
    16. kerry10456 kerry10456, 4 years ago
      No never bought any, but have browse the site, would like to see one myself some are pretty interesting
    17. kerry10456 kerry10456, 4 years ago
      This one here, the red leading edge in photos is clean overlap, hoping metal dial and dots are luminous and not a scan, lol
    18. crazycharacter, 4 years ago
      I hope so. Either way, it's cool.
    19. kerry10456 kerry10456, 4 years ago
      Adam agreed lol, but if you blow up the photos, looks like painted metal dial, which is correct, any chips shown or wear through all look normal
    20. kerry10456 kerry10456, 4 years ago
      Adam, again fingers crossed, but will add to shelf either way, lol
    21. crazycharacter, 4 years ago
      The only thing that concerned me was the jagged edges on the triangles.

      I like the Batman watch the other person sells with the Animated Penguin. Pretty cool!
    22. crazycharacter, 4 years ago
      Yep. My fingers crossed for you too!
