    In 1978 superhero character watches of superman, batman, and other heros were produced. This manual wind Batman watch runs great even with the crack in the crystal.
    There is a swiss company called Dabs and Co who also produced a Batman manual wind watch for DC comics in 1977 or 1978.
    The one pictured here only says DC Comics inc. 1966,1978 and has a model number: 2519810480A and I`m not sure where it was manufactured.

      This is the Timex issue, slightly before DABS, has a companion piece with Robin
    2. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
      and 1978 is correct
    3. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago

      OOPS.....brainfart..... The DABS series was 1977 and Timex followed up in 1978. Sorry for misinfo

      Thanks Kerry. I`m thinking of getting a new crystal for it. Not sure if the crystal can be glass or plastic.
    6. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
      Plastic was original, pretty common size. Your local jeweler should have
    7. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
      Timex used the "recess" crown case design from approx. 1968-79, so shouldn't be hard to locate
    8. roddyq roddyq, 5 years ago
      It`s better to keep it original like you say Kerry. Plastic it is.

      @Rod, at one time, I had about 1000 postings on this forum, got mad, photos where showing up on flee-bay, deleted most and started over.....if you wish to see a particular piece, good chance I have an example :-)
    10. roddyq roddyq, 5 years ago
      I can understand why you got mad Kerry. Thank you for your kind offer. I`m sure I will be asking you as time pieces seem to cross my path in my travels.
    11. roddyq roddyq, 5 years ago
      Happy New Year Kerry!! Thank you for sharing your vast knowledge on time pieces much appreciated. Here's to a great 2017

      Rod, was reading your profile..... Have you seen Man from UNCLE watch from the 1960's before?
    13. roddyq roddyq, 5 years ago
      Hi Kerry no I haven't seen the Man from UNCLE before. Would be great to see!!
    14. kerry10456 kerry10456, 5 years ago
