Snickers Candy Bar Advertising Wristwatch

DSC03461

This is an interesting find- a Snickers candy bar watch with moving dial. The seconds dial displays Snickers candy bar wrapper designs from 1930-1990. The face is gold with shiny, embossed stars across it and the case and hands are also gold. It has a Japan quartz movement and Mars, inc. 1989 written across the bottom of the face. I’m guessing this was a promotional item celebrating the new design of the wrapper that came out in 1990. I got this from a collector a few months back and it’s in perfect condition. This is definitely the most luxurious-looking advertising watch I have seen. No manufacturer is listed and I can’t find any mention of the promotion on the internet. This is gorgeous in hand.
