Evil Queen/Snow White Watches (60th Anniversary - 1997)

Encircled in decorative metal, the face of this Evil Queen wristwatch is clean and uncluttered. Available only to cast members at Disneyland, the timepiece came in a very limited edition of just 200.



The front reads, "The Queen 1937-1997 60th Anniversary" (similar to the cast member pin). The gold hour and minute hands are chaperoned by a poison apple that circles the dial every 60 seconds. The gold design around the outer face is more prominent or less depending upon the lighting.




Purple leather wristband.



Backside reads "© DISNEY JAPAN MOVT" and lists the edition number.



Watch was sold in a wooden box with a sliding illustrated top.

As you might expect, most Snow White watches tend to be designed for little girls with lots of bright colors. But this anniversary piece feels a little different. A limited edition of just 3000, the face features the princess in a classic pose with red "jewels" from the nine to four o'clock positions. The text reads, "Snow White 60th Anniversary."



Inscribed along the rear outer edge is, "Made Exclusively For Walt Disney Theme Parks And Resorts." In the center back it reads, "Limited Edition commemorating 60 years of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 1937." Then the edition number is listed.



Manufactured by Fossil, the watch was sold at the parks in 1997. It came with a black stand that reads "Limited Edition" and a silver apple that sits on top. Inscribed on its front is "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 1937".




Also included was a Certificate Of Verification.



A smart-looking Snow White watch.
