In 1936, Bob Wian sold his prized DeSoto Roadster to purchase a small hamburger stand in Glendale, California. He named it Bob's Pantry.

 

One night in 1937, a regular customer requested something different for a change. Bob went to work and the first double-decker hamburger was born.

Customers couldn't get enough of Bob's new creation. One fan in particular was a chubby six-year-old boy in droopy overalls.

 

He would often help Bob sweep up in exchange for a free burger. In honor of his young friend, Wian decided to name the better burger the Big Boy®. Another regular customer, a movie studio animator, sketched the now famous character on a napkin.

The rest is history.

 

The round case features MINT condition smooth gleaming high polished chrome top, bezel, sides and lugs. The case back is original satin sand marked finish. The case measures 34.00mm in diameter (not counting stem & crown) by 40.60mm lug to lug and is a full adult size that would be great for a man or woman.

 

 

It is powered by a quality Swiss made Jeweled mechanical  wind-up movement.
