1935 Popeye New Haven Wristwatch.
Out of stock
One of the largest character watches manufactured prior to World War II, this rare and charming piece books between $1,500 and $2,000 on page 279 of the authoritative hard cover comic character book by Hy Brown entitled Timepieces: Seven Decades of Memories. Certainly the value has increased considerably in the past decade. The watch face pictures the spinach-eating sailor, with his muscular arms keeping time perfectly almost seventy years after production. The rest of the Popeye clan are pictured in miniature on the watch face as well. Face is very clean for its age, and the crystal is NRMT, as is the original leather band.
