This rather rare and charming pocket watch has a great action image of Dan Dare on the dial. This watch was given to me for a full service.
This type of watch falls into the pin pallet movement category. They were sold mainly in Woolworths and were designed to be disposed of. Since this particular model was produced c1953, it is now almost 70 years old! A testament to simple engineering.
A first run was garnished with Dan Dare under the Ingersoll. It was later removed, making this model a lot rarer than the later models.
And not only is this watch pretty interesting, almost 70 years old, and sold as a throw away watch for 5 shillings. It also has a great feature!
Look! Dan is shooting the Lava Dragon!
