1951 New Haven Animated Store Display Full of NOS Watches

#1 Post by Findingtime » Tue Apr 19, 2016 5:40 am

I've been reorganizing the collection and thought I would share a picture of this.

This display is old store stock and holds 3 Dick Tracy and 3 Li'L Abner watches made by New Haven in the 50's.

All are in good working order and come complete with the original band and price tag.

New Haven produced many animated watches in the 50's but I've only seen 1 style of display graphics.

Some of the other watches include a U.S. Marshall, Gnomes, Roosters, Squirrels and more.

I can see some little kid pointing to his choice, and saying to the sales clerk... " I want that one!"
The colors still pop on this display placard, thanks for sharing boss! :D
