Hodinkee found an auction for Captain Kangroo’s original gold Vulcain Cricket. The $1,100 buy it now price seems like a great deal for a watch with quite a bit of provenance.
The watch comes with documentation from the 2004 sale of Keeshan’s estate after he passed away. As an interesting aside, two other watches auctioned at that estate sale were an Abercrombie & Fitch Seafarer made by Heuer and an 18k white gold Bulova Accutron.
It might not be completely worth as much as they’re saying, but if you can get it right at the reserve it could be a nice piece to have. I mean come on – Captain Kangaroo? He was a legend.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
