Best Mickey Mouse Watches Online
Where to buy a Disney Mickey Mouse watch?
First of all, we have to divide Disney Mickey Mouse watches into vintage watches and new watches. What is the difference between the two, you may ask?
Vintage watches are the watches produced a long period of time ago, which have stood the test of time and some have become more and more valuable with age. In our view, if you're looking for a unique Mickey Mouse watch, it's better to choose a vintage watch, if you can invest a bit more money. Why? Timeless elegance, high quality, and stunning watch models that are no longer being produced.
But let's explore together both options!
1. Vintage watches
Well, for serious Disney fans or watch collectors a vintage watch has more value given its age, history and watch brand (some no longer produce particular watch models and some no longer produce watches in general). There are a lot of markets and sellers of vintage watches, such as eBay, Etsy, Chrono24 and private sellers just like us: Vintage Radar. We will discuss all these options soon.
2. New watches
For someone who doesn't know much about watches or simply has seen a Mickey Mouse watch on someone's wrist and wants loved the idea, large markets such as Amazon or national wholesale websites are a very easy and fast option.
Buying a Mickey Mouse watch online
1. Buying vintage watches
eBay and Etsy are two big markets where anybody can sell their own stuff. This makes them a great place to find a great deal. You might be lucky and find a mint condition vintage Mickey Mouse watch at somewhere under $50 plus shipping or even less. You have buyer protection, especially when using PayPal and this means it might be harder to get scammed BUT make sure to read the product description, look closely at photos and ask the seller for further information, if necessary. Many online shoppers can get lost in the thrill of online shopping and overlook small details such as glass scratches, broken watch strap, or even non-working watches, all of which are usually mentioned somewhere in the description even.
What makes these platforms a little risky is that you do not know how serious some sellers are. If someone sells a vintage watch they might not know how to test time accuracy, overlook some glass scratches, and other minor problems that will ruin your dream of the perfect watch.
Chrono24 is a premium watch selling platform where sellers are verified, provide proof of ownership for their watches, and also provide more details and product accuracy.
Although the platform offers Buyer protection and encourages sellers to include tracked shipping, the buying process might take a little longer than eBay and Etsy, because of their different operating system. You will make an offer just like you do on eBay, but the seller cannot accept right away. He must send you an invoice where he has to include shipping and delivery time. Unless you both are online at the same time, the process can last longer.
Private Sellers are people or small businesses who want to grow as a brand and for whom customer experience is everything. They take on the giants so they struggle to offer you higher quality, more detailed product descriptions, better pictures, and other guarantees.
Many online shoppers would rather buy and support a hard-working group of people than a huge platform where the main company has complete control over both sellers and buyers. This direct interaction and transaction mean more engagement from sellers because they can earn more, without third parties collecting extra fees, so they can be more motivated to go the extra mile for you, the buyer.
You might feel more connected to the seller, to the shop story, how it grows and also receive more targeted offers in your newsletter as the seller knows you.

2. Buying new watches
Amazon is by far the most renowned online platform to search for products but with great quantity also come low-quality products that for watch enthusiasts are something awful. If you decide to buy a Mickey Mouse watch, it's better to invest a little more money, that settle for something disappointing and then regretting your purchase.
There are some brands that still produce good quality Mickey Mouse watches, such as Invicta or Citizen. Below you can find some nice models from each brand so that you can get an idea. Each photo will have a buy it now link below.
You can find this watch for under $150. You get a great quality automatic watch movement for this price.
New watches can be a popular choice because they look brand new, and you have the guarantee that there will be no scratches and no signs of previous wear. However, when it comes to Mickey Mouse watches, what our research showed us is that most of the amazing vintage watch designs are no longer being produced.
That is why we want to introduce a third category: vintage watch models that are no longer available as new, and that we believe are more exciting than newer models:

Quartz or Mechanical Mickey Mouse Watch?
Now that you decided whether to buy a vintage or a new Mickey Mouse watch you also have to decide on the type of mechanism it has.
A quartz watch will be powered by a small lithium battery that can run for up to 3 years.
A mechanical watch will need constant winding, meaning if you decide not to wear your Mickey watch for a day it will stop. The power reserve can be somewhere around 24-48-72 hours. When you want to wear it again you will have to set the correct time and also wind it a few times to that it starts ticking.
This depends on your own taste. While men might go for the mechanical version, women might opt for a quartz watch that doesn't need the extra maintenance.
We hope this article has given you an idea about the Mickey Mouse watches out there and that making a choice for the right watch is easier now.
