Character Watches Identification & Price Guide Book (page 64) lists
wholesale dealers collector value on this watch at $300, and this price was
over 20 years ago! We were only able to find one of these on the
Internet, and it was in terrible condition & not running!
This would be a
gift for the antique watch collector, character watch collector or even
U.S. Navy person in your life!
