Anyone out there with a Mickey watch?

This is a Lorus auto (Seiko movement) from Disneyland, Florida. It dates to 1990, so is now 30 years old (2020). The auto movement is a 17 jewel, Singapore made Seiko Y621-6050A1, with quick set date. It features an 18ct GP case, with display back that has a gold Mickey outline on it. The dial has raised, gold tone Arabic numerals with a lovely depiction of a 'Pie Eyed' Mickey in the centre. Mickey's arms are the hands. The watch also has a second hand. Thankfully, the previous owner kept this out of the light, and only wore it rarely, so there is no fading to Mickey. I have never seen another one like it so would describe it as 'scarce'....many Mickeys are quartz.

The plating on the watch as it arrived from the USA...there were a few marks on it, but no gouges, so I had it stripped and replated.

The new look, and a blue sharkskin strap.

My second Mickey is a Bulova Accutron 'Hummer'. This is smaller than the Lorus...probably a ladies or even a childs watch. It has the later 2193 calibre movement, which only had one coil on the tuning fork, and a counterweight on the other side. It has a date code of N7, dating it to 1977...making it 43 years old (2020). This watch was fully serviced by our own 'Silver Hawk' at 'Electric Watches', including a case re-polish. The wife wears this one.

Not got one yet but it is a work in progress:wicked:.  I recently picked up some new, old stock, Timex electric movements from a guy in Poland......

and have ear marked the M40 one for one of these NOS Mickey Mouse dial and handsets, that are, as we speak, winging their way over to me from the USA.....

Next stage is to mate it to a suitable Timex  M40 case and I will end up with a 'genuine' new, old stock 1971 Timex Electric Mickey Mouse watch...:thumbs_up:

This is what I am aiming to duplicate :wink:
