BRADLEY MICKEY WATCH ANIMATED NODDING BOBBING HEAD '72
This auction is for a very hard to find and rare Disney Mickey Mouse Bradley "Nodding" or "Bobbing" Head Animated Mid Size Wrist Watch from 1972 in fantastic condition, never worn, only a couple of tiny flea bites on the back case you can barely see with my $1500 camera, this was well cared for by an adult collector. The face is bright and shiny, the sides of the case have no scratches, the original strap is mint. Very sharp, nearly 40 years old and still running strong, if you aren't familiar with this piece, do not buy one that isn't running, they are very hard to repair, even by a seasoned watch expert and the cost is steep, put in perspective, my watchmaster who does the Ingersoll Mickeys that I sell, that few watch guys in the country can do, charges me the same amount to repair these as he does my 76+ year old '30's Mickey's that will run you $500-$1000 and up (('ve got a couple available now). He hates working on these, a guy with over 50 years professional experience. Point is, if you buy a dead one and think you can grab a beater for $40-$50 and have it repaired, it'll cost you around 3 times that to have it serviced, and that's if you're even lucky enough to find a watchman who can. If you know watches, picture a guy who can tear down and rebuild a pin-lever watch
