Pink Panther Mechanical Watch

I got a large package of watches today, so thought I'd blog one of those.

The watch is a mechanical analogue watch with a Swiss Movement, but assembled in Hong Kong. It's a children's watch based on the character The Pink Panther. The Pink Panther character started life as part of the animated introduction sequence to the 1963 Inspector Clousseau detective comedy movie The Pink Panther (after the thief in the movie). The Pink Panther was so popular that he spawned a whole series of animated shorts, and a lot of merchandise.

It is a 3-hand dial on which the hour and minute hands are the Pink Panther's arms.

The style looks like it is from the 70s, but it could be a more modern production.
