did acquire a large treasure trove of character watches that has allowed
us to substantially lower the prices on these scarce
collectible character watches!!!
This was the FIRST
and ONLY character watch to feature Mickey AND Donald on
the watch dial !!!
This extremely scarce
character watch was contracted by Seiko Watch Company & licensed by
Walt Disney Productions. It had a very low production run and was
created exclusively for sales at Walt Disney World in 1986. The 1986
retail price over 30 years ago was $49.95. Due to this fairly high selling price
(at the time) compared to other character watches, the original 1986 sales were
quite sluggish, and this model was discontinued with a very small
quantity ever produced. The values of this watch is soaring,
and has been featured in several watch collection guides.
This article was written
regarding this scarce watch in 1989 in the first issue (Jan/Feb
1989) of "The Bradley Collector" written by charactor watch
authority Howard S. Brenner ,,,
Bites”: The collecting bug has now spread to Lorus! First is the
1986 Mickey / Donald ww, the ONLY one ever produced with BOTH of
those two characters together on the same dial. This model was only
produced for a very short time, then discontinued due to sluggish
sales. Due to the extremely low production, Dealers are now (1989)
