    Hello Fellow Collectors and Visitors. The other day I posted the different "Blue" boxes for the Mickey Mouse wristwatches. I mentioned I was going to post a follow up with an "Oddity".
    First I have to say, I've only seen one other example of this styling on a Blog ... http://75yearsfortheinegersollmickey.blogspot.com/... I've had this full set for sometime and always wondered about it, but all the extra paperwork and condition are correct. There was an attached note, gifting this to someone back when and a card from the Jewelry Store, I guessing where it was purchased.
    I have to conclude this to be an Authentic piece, but have never ran across any advertisements for reference. I have cross referenced the serial # on movement and it dates 1938.
    Through the years, I consider myself somewhat knowledgeable on Mickey watches, but ready for any and all comments/help to put this "Mystery" to rest.
    Best Regards
    Kerry

      How do you "throw" a timeline like that together. It's amazing and mind boggling. Lost for words x
    6. vonsboy vonsboy, 3 years ago
      It is certainly outside the common canon which makes me suspicious and until
      some form of corroboration is uncovered it will remain a mystery, the accompanying paperwork is not unusual, I have seen a number of theses watches
      clocks etc., presented with an attribution in the form of a note as in this case but
      also in cards, and in other cases written on the boxes themselves. I've also seen
      purported repair receipts. As these "extras" often increase the value to collectors
      they deserve extra scrutiny to my mind.

      @ Vonsboy, I agree with your assessment with "Out" of the normal and need of collaboration. I've been searching for several years. But in defense, possible hypothesis for this design, Ingersoll and Disney were looking for a "New" design in 1937 and came up with the smaller Deluxe models and continued the Standard variant also. This could possibly be a "Test Market" styling before production. It has happen before with the 1934 Donald Duck and I've never seen an advertisement for the Donald. I'm not saying this is the case, just a plausible explanation. I can remember when the first Donald showed up back then...Was a big deal.
      Another thought that has crossed my mind.... a "Custom" design from the Jeweler itself....recased and sold to the individual in the note for that "One of a kind" gift...
      As you stated earlier, it will remain a mystery without some future documentation to establish it's origin. That's why I have always stated I need info....
      Thanks for you input
      Kerry

      Hi Kerry,I visited with the seller of that box,business card, and paperwork just before he shipped it to make a copy of the warranty paper. I loved the 122 N. Carrollton Ave. address and mostly the "GALVEZ 6409"! That really dates the timeline in New Orleans! I'm wanting to contact you with some items and needs of items?Is it possible to speak with you about World Fair 1933 wire lug watch?
