I was sitting here and looked at my watch box and saw a watch I still had
in a zip lock, and to get going........." Marvin The Martian ".
But Marvin is not a Seiko or Citizens, to bad.
Marvin came to me in a .... " Zip Lock Bag ", from Seattle Washington........
" Totally strip down and all apart ", with some other parts.
Marvin is from .............. 1994 .
I got Marvin going this afternoon, and ticking away, and music also.
My wife says it is real loud and working.
So another one going strong.
Marvin looks on my wrist like a .......... " Dime ", " A Ten Cent piece ".
Well, Marvin came to me Free. And also Marvin is in excellent condition,
Gold case crystal in excellent shape, but have to put the " Black strap " back on it.
The brown one is terrible and broken.

I have this one (a 5Y23):




in immaculate condition. It came to me with a dead (from battery leak) movement. I swapped in a 5H (higher spec) movement from a watch I bought as a donor.

Mickey is in top shape and so clean. Marvin was all pieces and I had to
try to fix him and I did. I tried him on , he looks like a
" Dime on my wrist ".
But he came free so I just keep him in the box with all the other
" Big Boys ".
But he has a friend now so he is doing fine.
Seiko School Time another free one.

When I was a nipper, my aunt (who was the coolest person I knew) had this Snoopy watch, I thought it was amazing and I've never forgotten it. Woodstock is on a clear disc and flies round the dial.

Love that Marvin watch. Been contemplating hitting a buy-it-now on ebay for a few weeks for one myself :) This Mickey The Rat watch has a $249USD receipt dated 1992. My mother picked it up from a car-boot-sale (swap meet) here in the UK for £0.50p about $0.75c

Hey Guys they are very nice and still good to see

I don't actually get them but when Marvin came around he look like he needed some help.
I would like to find others but over here many don't keep them to long I guess. Garage sales don't happen
to mush except old things and clothing and household.
So I quite going around for some time now. I use to browse some places but not any more.
Maybe next year I can try again. I like to find some old watchs that people might not want any more
but that's not happening any more.
But all those look great and very nice to see .
