I happen to collect small time-pieces. You've not seen most of them.
When I realised I hadn't posted this yet, though, I was quite shocked-- about as shocked as when I took it to a watch-maker to get it cleaned and he refused to work on it.
This was given to me for my birthday back in September. I love Yogi Bear and wind-up watches, so this was perfect.
The watch is a bit tight on my wrist but works well when I use it (because it hasn't been cleaned in 50 years, I rarely use it as I don't want to damage it.)
I'm wondering if it's also self-winding, as it does have an unbreakable mainspring (which is common in self-winding watches). Otherwise, it winds perfectly but runs fast (I guess their electronic timing wasn't too good, but I don't remember seeing any way to adjust the speed when I opened it).
It came pretty much mint condition. The steel still beautifully polished.
Note the early Yogi Bear outside his classic clothes (or lack of them).
A nice watch. Sadly, I cannot use it much.
Do we have a category for vintage Hanna-Barbera cartoons paraphernalia?
