Creating a timless watch

With the Ingersoll partnership, Herman 'Key' Kamen, the sole representative of Disney merchandising, thrown the Mickey Mouse watch into the tunnel of the Great Depression during the thirties, the very first sold at Chicago World Fair on June 1933. And an adorating public had to follow him, buyng millions of that watches.
Tryng to track all the Mickey Mouse wristwatches issued by the three historicall brands strictly connected each other (Ingersoll ; US Time ; Timex) this site is a tribute to that unreapatable adventurer in the watchmaking history.
Rebuilding the evolution of these models has been possible thank to the excellent site found www.mickeymousewatches.co.uk
