This is a rare, untouched presentation package for toy watches for children on a watch-form cardboard frame. The cardboard display is an image of a large pocket watch with a toy watch fastened at each hour. The twelve toy watches are of slightly different shapes with various coloured aluminium around the dials. Each has a stretch link band. The stems of the watches are plastic and apparently the hands rotate when the stem is moved. The crystals are bubble style plastic. The cardboard display watch has writing which states, ‘Quality Watch DP19941’ and ‘Made in Japan’ as well as large hour numbers. The item is currently contained within a firm sealed plastic sleeve and could be displayed using Velcro dots or placed in a frame. The overall condition is excellent. It would make a lovely feature in a child’s room or adult’s den. Diameter of presentation cardboard 8.5 ins (21.5cm). Total weight 134 grams. This item can be seen in the book, "How the Watch was Worn - A Fashion for 500 Years", on page 264.
