Wednesday watch

Recommended Posts

Lorus Mickey Mouse watch dating to 1990. Originally bought in Disneyland Florida, I purchased this watch from an American collector in 2013. It features a Seiko Y621-6050 A1, Singapore made, 17 jewel automatic movement with quickset date and a crystal case back with a Mickey logo in gold on it. The cream dial with raised gilt numbers features a 'Pie eye' caricature of Mickey in superb condition with no fading of the colours. Mickey's arms are the hands. This is the only 'gold' wristwatch that I possess and also the only one with a strap, as I normally deplore them. I disassembled the watch in 2014 and had the case refinished and re-plated. To this day, I have never seen another one like it.

Yesterday I discovered that @JayDeep and I had more in common than I thought.

@Karrusel posted photos of a gorgeous Rotherhan & Sons pocket watch . . . .

And Jay commented that it would look wonderful in wrist watch format. The point is that I also have a real weakness for pocket watch syle pieces for the wrist  --  especially for the movements (i own three Unitas 6498 derived watches for goodness sake).

 

Today, I'm wearing an example from a company named for a master of the pocket watch art . . . . .

I tend to prefer roman numerals, but, for Jay, this piece is also available in the traditional look . . . .
