Disney Parks Authentics Mickey Watch - A Simple Yet Fun Watch, A Review

This is one of the few times that I would get myself a pure quartz watch.

In January of 2013, I got the opportunity to re-visit Disneyland Anaheim after a 17 year hiatus. It was a nostalgic moment for me as 17 years ago, it was the honeymoon destination for me and my wife. Now, 17 years later, we are back with 3 kids in tow.

Unfortunately, 17 years ago, I wasn't into watches. Back then, Seiko was supplying to Disney automatic models unique to Disney but not anymore. Now, such automatic watches are fetching sums exceeding USD500 per unit!!! So, one of the mission that I have with the visit is to get myself a Disney themed watch.

Unfortunately, the only mechanical watch available was by Ingersoll. A re-issue of a model first issued back in the 1930s. Every other watch was quartz. :(

Nevertheless, my wife decided to get one for me as part of my birthday gift. What she got was by Disney Parks Authentics, with a Mickey Mouse dial and the option to change into 3 different bezel and straps/bracelets.

Hamilton khaki Field Officer Auto H70615733 - An Unassuming Yet Strong Character, A Review

This was my first experience with this iconic American watch brand. Now part of the Swatch Group, Hamilton continues to offer watches with American styling.

The Hamilton khaki Field Officer Auto H70615733 comes with a sapphire crystal window covering a 44 mm stainless-steel watch casing. With an exhibition case-back, you will be able to see the automatic ETA 2824 movement with handwind and hackable capabilities. The lug width is 22 mm and the strap used in  black leather. The dial colour is black and there is a 24 hour sub-dial in Arabic numerals. Water resistant depth is set at 100 m or 330 feet.

What I like about it is the big hour markers with inner military hour markers and outer minute markers. The hands are simple and effective.

The casing with a brushed finishing. Double layered leather strap, thick and sturdy plus a double buckle hole system compliment the rugged look. The engraved crown is also a nice touch.

Ingersoll Mickey Mouse 30’s Collection Watch – So Cute And Full Of Magic & Wonder, A Review

I was in Disneyland California in January of this year. However, the choice of mechanical Mickey Mouse watches was limited. What’s available was so expensive. Nevertheless, the power of the internet allows me to search for the same item at a fraction of the cost that was sold in Disneyland Resort. Trust to have it!
