    Thanks for sharing your unique collection! I want to say I saw Citizen branded Mickey watches at Disney...(was there a few months ago).

    Bulova makes up the majority of them now. I think there are very few Citizen models. I have a Bulova branded one, but do not have a wrist shot of it on my phone :confused:. Will post a photo once I get home to the box.

    To be fair, no, they are by no means affordable anymore.
    Some of the rarest versions (like the Genta Mickey sailor) get 5 figures now, crazy as that might sound.

    Those days are LONG gone, unfortunately.

    This Mickey sold for $13,000 only a few months ago at auction. Same watch used to get $3500 in 2010 when I bought one (and sold it for the same a few years later! Ugh).

    The Genta Disneys were never particularly cheap, I bought the very first steel classic design Mickey with mother-of-pearl dial in 1998 and paid $2,600 from an AD and that was with a 20% discount. They had a reasonably finished ETA 2892 automatic movement, but nothing extraordinary. Enjoyed it for many years and sold it at auction in 2014 where the hammer price was $5,200 but it included the leather coral-color Genta/Disney box and all papers, a complete set in mint condition. With premium the buyer paid somewhere close to $6,000 so I was happy. Genta made a fair number of these watches over the years in all kinds of configurations including gold, steel, quartz and automatic, but surprisingly you don't see a lot of them on the market. Before I put mine to auction I tried to sell it privately at a price not much higher than what I paid but no one was really interested, a tire kicker or two but mostly crickets. But maybe they have become a hot property now. Nostalgia is big thing, maybe techy millennials are buying them.
