DONALD DUCK WATCHES FROM 1937
Above scan of an ad promoting Donald Duck watches in the 1937 Christmas season is from the bottom rim of the back cover of Britain's Mickey Mouse Weekly no. 96 (dated Dec. 4th, 1937). Disneyic watches produced in the US since 1933 are well-known, but I'd never heard of these Donald Duck watches, "Swiss made", according to the ad and produced for and/or distributed in the UK by London-based Louis Newmark, before. If anyone knows more about them, please let us know.
