Disney cartoon character watches aren’t really our bag, or any other cartoon characters to be honest, but there’s no denying that there is a huge global market for Peanuts, Disney, Japanese Manga/Anime, Batman, Spiderman and a whole stack of cosplay characters on wristwatches. Oh yeah possibly Pokemon too, anyone still chasing them?
Oh well, let’s check out this Undone automatic, which is Seiko NH powered, has a stunning crinkle effect dial, Donald Duck in the mix and sapphire crystal too. At 37mm across it’s fairly small by modern standards so it makes a great first watch for younger horology fans. Although at $499 on pre-order, you have to be fairly well off to treat your youngsters too. Still, it’s only the same as a decent smartphone or games console plus a few games.
The rear caseback is glass too, with another Donald cartoon on there. The case has a nice retro 1960s feel as well, with a hint of old Rotary, Mortima, Oriosa, Rado etc chamfered shoulders and knurled winding crown. Vinatge theme works well with an old school Disney character like this we reckon.
Here’s the word from Undone.
“With a reliable Japanese TMI NH34 automatic movement, you can trust that this watch will keep accurate time no matter where your adventures take you. And for those who need to keep track of multiple time zones, the GMT function with a whimsical Chip N Dale-tipped hand has you covered. Add a touch of charm to your look with the delightful duo, and stand out from the crowd with the distinctive design of this must-have timepiece.”
