    Hi,
    This watch was given to me at Christmas. It is in running condition and I presume it was made by Bradley in the 60's, not sure. The strap seems newer to me, though. Thanks for any help and once again, enjoy.

      Hello ticktocktime100,
      First let me pass along that Bradley didn't make any Mickey Mouse watches before 1972, yes the made several character watch before that, but no Disney pieces.
      Now do to yours, The strap is not original and has been added later. This watch was produced and sold under the label "Adorable Sales", they support a Swiss single jewel unadjusted manual movement that was mfg. by Degalan watch . These were first introduced in 1970 and ran for 2 years, note no Adorable Sales on the dial at the 6 o'clock, which puts this as a later piece and could have been sold under several different labels, probably DTC or Webster.
      Commonly know as a "Hippy" Mickey , these are pretty desirable collector pieces.
      Thanks for sharing this one, always nice to see a vintage Mickey.
      Kerry
