Lt. Goodbody’s (Michael Crawford) wrist watch from Richard Lester’s 1967 comedy war film How I Won the War.
An inept British World War II commander leads his troops through a series of misadventures in North Africa and Europe.
Lt. Goodbody wore his watch throughout the film from beginning to end as a recurring piece of his uniform. The item is a metal Sitex Sports watch with a brown leather strap, a yellow face, a plastic lens and a metal dial and buckle. The strap has a handwritten label reading “Michael Crawford How I Won the War”. The watch shows wear from production use and aging, the hands and mechanics are rusted over, the plastic lens is damaged and cracked and the leather strap is well worn, however, considering the age of the piece it remains in an otherwise very good condition.
Materials: Leather, Ferrous Metals, Plastic.
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
