    Captain Marvel Watch with Box & Price Tag (Marvel Importing, 1948). In the 1940s, two crazes were sweeping America: superheroes and wristwatches. Occasionally they collided, with all the power and beauty of this scarce 1948 Captain Marvel wristwatch, produced by Fawcett Publications. In Mint condition in its original box. Few Captain Marvel watches have survived in perfect Mint condition, especially since youngsters were usually very excited about wearing a brand new character watch, not storing it away unused in its original packaging. Even the wrap-around price band showing the $5.95 original price is still undisturbed, attached to the red watch band exactly as issued. This is one of the scarcest character watches of the era to find in perfect condition in its original display box. The exceptional graphics of the interior are bright and clean, having been protected from light and all other elements since 1948. The interior box backdrop is in Excellent condition. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
