We have included this watch in our Mechanic's Special section because it is currently in our office queue for maintenance.  Often, a cleaning and service is all the watch will need to get it back to the level of running condition we strive for in our active sales catalog.  However, on occasion a more serious problem may have presented itself with the watch.  If you are interested in more information on the status of this watch, the anticipated maintenance needed on it, or to purchase this watch AS-IS, please contact us.

If you decide to purchase this watch in its current non-running condition, we do NOT offer our standard 30-day return on any Mechanic's Special items.
On these items, all sales are AS IS and FINAL.
At PM Time Service, we refer to a "character watch" as any watch that has a dial, and possible other components, that have a cartoon character, public figure or a fictional character printed on them.  There were many companies, such as US Time, Ingersoll and Timex, that were commissioned by the character-owner (such as Disney for example) to produce watches with these images, and in most cases, the characters watches were completed at the factory and not as an after-market addition.  While most of the PM Time Service character watches are vintage, this type of watch is still in production today, albeit with updated quartz movements.

Character watches were primarily targeted towards children and as such, a large number of the watches produced were of lower quality or "dollar watches" and were also considered ladies' or mid-sized.  While the original focus group for sales may have been targeted at children and young adults, we do see many purchases today by adults for their own use.  If you need a longer band than the one currently fitted to this watch, please contact us with your desired length and we'll get you a quote on a replacement band.  In most cases, you can also take the wrist watches to your local jeweler to fit you a new band as well.
