No idea how much this is worth.
It was bought between 1984 and 1986 from "Pilot" - nowadays The Tintin Shop - in London.
Essentially, a pre-Swatch black, plastic strap job - the later Swatches are very similar.
Images available.
Works perfectly well - has not been worn, just hung on the study wall. One tiny scratch on the face.
A member of the Tintin Shop has confirmed that these were made specially in Hong Kong between 1984 and 1986 - long before the later Swatch examples! Comes with an original, blank "Pilot" invoice sheet from the period.
Moderator Note: As ever, because we don't run auctions, and have no means of resolving disputes or arbitrating in any sale, all those responding to the above must do so by e-mail directly to the seller, and not on here. We advise caution to both seller and purchaser, and that all transactions should be made in a manner which is acceptable to both parties.

Did you ever find out how much it's worth, DM24a? I have one with sleeping Milou/Snowy on the face and would like to sell it to some who appreciates it.
Moderator Note: There have been many many Tintin-themed watches over the decades (possibly hundreds?), so you might want to add a little more detail to your description - manufacturer and year if possible, and things like if it is a manual or automatic movement, etc.

Is it possible to post a picture of the watch?

Moderator Note: You would need to upload the photos to another site - Flickr or Facebook, for example, and then place the links to the pictures here.
