Naughty Naughty Pets Blue Burt watch

Today, it's time for one of my sillier watches.

The watch is a Naughty Naughty Pets (or NNP) watch and is covered in cartoon characters. Naughty Naughty Pets was a set of stories made into a cartoon series from 2006 about a range of unusual household pets, and also had a range of toys and accessories. The series was written by Scary Stories Inc founder Wendy Ann Gardner. She founded the company in 1997, and was inspired to write stories inspired by her quirky pets, leading to the Naughty Naughty Pets series.

This watch is for the character Blue Burt the budgie and features his image at various places on the watch. There is also a cat on the dial, which I guess may be Killer Kiwi the Devil Cat (although he doesn't look too devilish, but I guess looks can be deceiving). The face of the watch has a 3 hand dial which is offset towards the top left corner (with a crown at the 13:30 position). The bottom left of the face has a picture of Blue Burt behind a magnifying dome on the glass (but on the inside). The top half of the strap has Blue Burt's name pressed into it, while the bottom half has the Naughty Naughty Pets name (printed except for the 2nd Naughty which is pressed in) and a picture of Blue Burt in a night cap.

The watch seems to be associated with the series as it has a copyright of Scary Stories Inc from 2007 on the back, and there is also a Naughty Naughty Pets hologram sticker to show it's genuine.

The model number is GM-NNP-71, which refers to the style as there are a few other watches of this style but for different characters with the same number.

There was a website for the line of watches (nnpwatch.com) but that doesn't seem to exist anymore. It seems to have been made by Menjiana and is on a type called Mini Miniature Watch. Inside is a Seiko Epson AL21E movement.
