I will explain from the last question asked. To get it going you have to visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask for estimate. Shop owner told you things he/she do not understand at all - self winding watches CAN NOT BE OVERWOUND, so, there is the question: are you sure this watch is self winding? I've experience of 26 years of watchmaking and have never came across Mickey Mouse watches having self winding movements. As far as I know, all MM watches are battery driven, but in case if you really have the mechanical one - you are lucky. That means there were past times when those watches were fitted with mechanical movements and now they are rarities. Even if your watch is not self winding, but is mechanical (not battery driven), visit your nearest watch repair shop and ask to check this watch out. In case if it is mechanical - pay the money and get it fixed (you will be a winner anyway). If it is battery driven - put it on your shelf where your's mother in law picture is and treat it accordingly. Rate me , plz.

    mcdevito75 Here, very few of the older if any at all are self winding, most of them are simply mechanical wind up. I have experience with the older Mickey"s and get most of them back to there former running condition which maintaines their collector value. I am Mike D at the RITE TIME BASICs watch repair shop. Please do check me out, I'm in the repair service directory here at fixya, bottom of the page, click on repair service directory the, on the left side of the page click on watches, then RITE TIME BASICS. FREE exam of your Mickey watch, standard service of cleaning, oil and adjustments start at $19.95.

My gold Mickey mouse Lorus watch was opened a part damaged by the person replacing the battery. This is not a digital watch, but has nthe mouse with hands and a second wheel at bottom.

You are probably going to have to look for an identical watch for parts.You might try this site: which is parts for watches. I'd have a look on ebay as well for a watch that is not working. Of course it does depend on the part you are looking for. I am also wondering if the inner parts for another Lorus mickey moue watch might fit, but maybe you don;t wish to change it out from the original.

Watch has stopped and will not wind itself up, even though it is a self winding watch (automatic)

How old is your watch?

Most makers recommend that they are serviced every 2-3 years.

If yours hasn't been touched for a long time, then cleaning by your local watch shop may help.

If it is relatively new, then a trip to the manufacturer's web site to find your nearest service agent is needed.

How do you know when you've wound a 1926 Waltham watch enough?

If you wind it gently, (do not apply a great force), it will slip in you fingers when it is fully wound.

If it stops frequently, it could be that it needs cleaning. As it is a very old watch, specialist advice might be worth paying for.

Good luck

I have a minnie mouse that was made in 1928! does any one no howmuch itz worth its called classic mickey!! please

mcdevito75 here, hello miss d, the first Mickey watch Disney came out with was in 1933, Mickey was invented in 1928, if this is a picture of your Mickey above, then it wa made in the early 1980"s. If it's working very well it could be worth a collector value of approx. $30.00 --$50.00

The wind up mechanism doesn't work

So I am assuming you have a mechanical watch then that does not use a battery. But then again you could have a self winding watch that has a "wind-up" mechanism. If you have a valuable watch then take it to a good repair shop. If you have an inexpensive watch then get a new one. If you have a watch worth less than $50 and you really like it and want it fixed, then a shop can put in a new movement for you. Best of Luck
