    Indecisive Watch Buyers Thread: Disney Edition

    Two Citizen Eco Drives.

    Iím leaning toward the Captain Marvel. It actually reminds me of a Zenith Baby Doll a little bit.

    But then Mickey watches are classics and Iíve never had one.

    Iím usually a mechanical girl but eco drives have their own appeal.

    Price point not significantly different so no help there. The Marvel is $30 USD cheaper.

    Itís been probably four years since Iíve bought a new watch so Iím sticking my toe back in to test the water with something fun and whimsical.

    It occurs to me that a SOTC shot might help show how the new acquisition would fit in. The Seiko is my daily, but all get semi regular wrist time except the gold and diamond Rolex Orchid. I already have an eco drive—the Sunrise with MOP dial and floating diamonds.

    First WIS Rule... When in doubt -- get BOTH...

    both are lovely Jeannie, but i give a slight edge to the Mickey since it would look great on leather strap...

    Nice to see your SOTC. The Captain Marvel is nice enough, but the Mickey watch makes me smile every time I look at it. And you wouldnít need to keep it on mesh...

    Mickey by a mile - bold, distinctive and fun.

    At first glance, I didn’t realise that the Captain Marvel was ‘anything’. It was just a Citizen with something going on at 9pm.

    I'd go with the Captain Marvel. It's far more subtle than the Mickey watch, and if I'm honest, I've never really liked Mickey. I once wrote a Disney-based short story for a podcast where I cast Mickey's character as a murderous mob boss in 1940s Hollywood. I'm a Donald Duck guy.

    My thoughts exactly. My oldest liked Mickey Mouse Club House and it only intensified my feelings. I raised my second son better as he skipped the kiddie shows and jumped right into Marvel and DC cartoons.
