The Helbros backwards Goofy watch is a collectible watch featuring the Disney cartoon character Goofy. It was manufactured by Helbros in 1972 and was the first Goofy watch ever made

The watch is a variant of Mickey Mouse watches, and is a popular Disney collectible.

Description

The Helbros backwards Goofy watch featured numbers in anti-clockwise order. Goofy’s hands also rotated in reverse to the customary direction.

It features a 17 jewel movement.

Backwards Goofy watches featuring “Helbros” on the dial were only produced in 1972 as the company was bought by the Bradley watch company in the same year. This has ensured that examples are relatively scarce.

Value

The first watches originally cost $19.95. Today good examples can sell for up to $700.
