When Mickey Mouse first made his feature film debut "Steamboat Willie" on November 18, 1928, was Walt Disney aware at the time this would become the most beloved cartoon character of all time around the world? Over the years, as Mickey Mouse evolves into the global icon he is today, the entire World of Disney grew with him as together they played their role as the leaders of pop culture. What makes pop culture into what it is bases itself on the fan appeal that makes a product become what is best known as a cult classic. In the case of Mickey Mouse, calling this cartoon character a cult classic is an understatement.
With Mickey Mouse less than a decade away from reaching his own centennial celebration, the surge of products coming from the Disney franchise will likely manifest even more so than it has already. One such product includes wristwatches. Like all merchandise, there are some that are made with high-end quality materials for the discerning enthusiast as well as cheaper designs for the more frugal. Whatever the budget is, there is a Mickey Mouse watch designed for everyone who happens to be a fan of this iconic character.
