Here & There


  1. No problem. Glad to help. Nice watch!
  2. Dubois Watch Case Co.
  3. Great group. I picked up a Hoppy for the G.B. market earlier in the year. Completely different packaging than the US version. Pretty cool. I still haven't found an ad for The Westerner. They ...
  4. Nice one. Hard to find.
  5. George, I know someone who has a few if you are still looking. :-)
  6. Thanks Kerry! Quick Draw is one of my favorites!
  7. What's the Quick Draw McGraw item in the bottom left?
  8. Looking good Kerry!
  9. My avatar is one of them. Been looking for it for 20 years! I'm doing a write up on it for my site. Got another Tom Mix with original band and a Blondie with original band off of eBay.
  10. Same here. I bought 3 rare items last week, but been slow for a few months.
  11. No problem! Thanks for sharing the photos! Find any goodies lately?
  12. Yep. My fingers crossed for you too!
  13. The only thing that concerned me was the jagged edges on the triangles. I like the Batman watch the other person sells with the Animated Penguin. Pretty cool!
  14. I hope so. Either way, it's cool.
  15. Have you seen the person on Etsy from the U.K. that sells the fantasy Smiths/Ingersoll watches? Have you ever bought any? I am curious about the quality. There are a couple that I like, but I'm afr...
  16. Let me know if original when you get it. All of the ones I have seen were fantasy pieces.
  17. The clock shown was made by Schmid. Schmid-Schlenker made wall and table clocks until they were bought out and stopped production about 1990. They were in business from 1935 to around 1990. ...
  18. Great watch George! In the Jay Ward cartoons, Shep was light grey in color. Very few of the watches were actually made where Shep is actually grey. He was too hard to see against the dial and...
  19. OK. Sorry for the confusion. Bradley was owned by Elgin. I couldn't figure out why Bradley was mentioned so much when they had nothing to do with this watch.
  20. Gotcha. I can't type even when my fingers don't wander. :-) "Most of these were made by Bradley Time Works in Hong Kong, but they had no shame in actually putting their name on the face of the wa...
  21. What Mickey did Bradley make in the early 60's?
  22. Thanks George! I'll get in touch with them. Maybe they can make us some custom ones! You will have to keep an eye out for your sister. Seiko & Citizen made some wind-up Hello Kitty watches in ...
  23. George, Thanks. Any idea if they have other characters? I have a couple Rolex watches I would like to transform. :-)
  24. George, This is AWESOME! Was the dial custom made for you or are they being sold in bulk?
  25. Nice George! One of my favorite set of character watches made. Thanks for sharing.
  26. I didn't realize Big Birds hand was in the way until I uploaded the video and had all the watches put away. ;-(
  27. I'm sure I have another. :-)
  28. I wish they would have made more nodders! I would love to see a Count nodder!
  29. Check out this link :-)
  30. Very nice George!
  31. Love it!
  32. Thanks for sharing. Love the back on this version! I think the dial has been re-finished. Still a great piece just wanted to let you know.
  33. I have a couple of them. I can send you a photo of them and a link for others if you want. My email can be seen by clicking on my username. I don't believe we are suppose to discuss values here.
  34. Made in the 70's by Helbros and is a hard watch to find. The band is the original.
  35. Very cool. I would guess early 40's. Probably 42-43.
  36. "Cincinnatus" c.1894
  37. No problem. It's a cool watch!
  38. Yes, sorry pattymanwaring. Feel free to delete all my comments not related to your watch. I've been trying to get ahold of Kerry via email, but have been having technical issues.
  39. I have a stem for you. Please email me your address. I am getting your emails but when I send them to you, they are getting bounced back to me.
  40. OK...back to normal...LOL....wonder how that happened???
  41. The watch is rare and the band is rarer. :-) Great item! Be careful you don't lose the hands with the cover missing.
  43. Just found an ad for Pinocchio & Pooh from 1971. These appear to have been made in conjunction/as a promotion for the grand opening of Walt Disney World in Florida. I thought the box on my Pooh watc...
  44. That's for sure. So many goodies. I go through them at least 5 times during the auction and seem to see something new every time!
  45. Here is a link to one for reference:
  46. Another great one! Thanks for sharing!
  47. I believe they are newspaper ad proofs. Very cool! Love the Wolf!
  48. Very Nice!!
  49. Oh, I finally found an original ad for Betty!
  50. That's a rare list! I'm currently just searching for original boxes for Tom Mix, Betty, FDR and a few early world's fair. What Ingersoll Coke and mickey alarm are you looking for?
