Greetings Ebayers, The Item Offered Is One(1) VERY GOOD+ Condition "BRADLEY/ELGIN TIME 1976 1 1/4 INCH BEZEL USA BICENTENNIAL MICKEY MOUSE MECHANICAL WIND WRIST WATCH".

The BRADLEY TIME Mickey Mouse Watches Made Between 1972 & 1985 Hold Third Place In The Mickey Mouse Watch Collector Market. Of Course The INGERSOLL, US TIME & TIMEX Watches Dating Back To 1933 Are The Most Valued & Sought After. But The Bradley Mickey Watches Have Come Up In Value & Are Becoming Highly Collectible.

For The 200th Anniversary Of The Founding Of The USA, In 1976, A Year Long Bicentennial Celebration Was Held & Products With A Red, White & Blue Color Scheme Were Issued By Almost Every Corporation In America. T Were Even Automobiles By Ford With Special Bicentennial Option Packages On Them.

The Bradley/Elgin Company Issued Mickey Mouse Watches With A Bicentennial Theme. The Most Common Of These Was The Mickey Mouse Bicentennial Pocket Watch. This Pocket Watch Goes For Premium Dollar At Auction If It Is New In The Original Package! One Of These Recently Sold On Ebay For $142.00.

The Watch Offered Is The Wrist Watch Version On Special Red, White & Blue Vinyl Wrist Strap. This One Does Not Turn Up Very Often On Ebay. In Fact In The Last 4 Months This Is The Only One I Have Seen Listed!
