Disney Rocketeer Watch

Several years ago, The Walt Disney Company purchased the rights to produce The Rocketeer and released it in 1991. The movie is based on Dave Stevens’ original work in Pacific, Eclipse, and Dark Horse Comics. In conjunction with the film and other tie-in merchandise, this watch was made available as a mail-away item. Kind of a low-grade sort of thing, but a unique piece nonetheless. As we said in another post about The Rocketeer, we think the movie was not given a fair shake at the box office. Yes, it was watered down to make it palatable for the general audience (the comic book was actually a bit racy given that the  protagonist’s girlfriend was a Betty Page knock-off). Nonetheless, we thought it was a bit of light fun and enjoy watching it now and again. Here is what other viewers had to say about it.
