    Bought this on our second honeymoon to Disney and the Bahamas in 1993 (really just another vacation 6 months after we wed). Has a holographic crystal that partially obscures the dial, and a Miyota movement.

    I also have a few new in box unworn 41mm Mickey Spot watches for my young adult kids or potential future grandchildren.

    Last month when I was dropping off a watch for service the gentleman in front of me had six Mickey Mouse watches he was dropping off for service or repairs. I had my one omega with me so we started talking a bit. He told me this is what he does now, specializes in Mickey Mouse watches and he said it’s relatively easy for him to find valuable ones that fly under the radar at yard sales etc. he mentioned prices, not in a bragging way just talking watches and I was shocked.

    I have no idea. Only that the dude seems to be a professional Mickey Mouse watch dealer.

    I wear this guy at least once a week. It was forever ago, but I think this was an anniversary gift. Could have been a birthday or Christmas, but pretty sure it was an anniversary. Solid watch and it easily gets more compliments than
    anything else I wear.
