Thought I'd share my three rare advertising watches. I bought them a few years ago. They were made by New Haven. They are similar in style to the New Haven Tip Top watch, with the offset crown (I've included a picture of my 1930 Tip Top watch). One of the watches is for Red Goose shoes, one is for Poll Parrot shoes and the third is for Twinkies shoes. All three are in nice condition, but only the Red Goose shoe watch is running. The other two tick for a second or so and stop, so probably just need a cleanng, but in the three years I've had them I haven't gotten around to having my watch guy do a cleaning. I think they are pretty rare and certainly unusual.
