They are cheap. They are fun. They are badly made. They are Disney character face-shaped wrist watches!
I have an extensive wrist watch collection with some truly unique and expensive models. Being the completist collector I am, I also have an extensive wrist watch collection with some truly unique and cheap as dirt models. Like these:
It seems that the whole design esthetic was to have the face of the character be the face of the watch. And that just about completed the discussion around the design table!

As a collector, I love finding a line of merchandise that has variations to hunt for. I know there are more of these face watches out there, and some day, they will be mine! He-Yuk!
It isn’t just wrist watches that tell time. For more fun with timepieces, check out our post by contributor Gaylin entitled Mickey Mouse Watches and Pocket Watch. I also have a Winnie the Pooh Finger Watch. Now you won’t see that every day!
