  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON A RUGGED BROWN LEATHER FULL STITCH BAND WHICH LOOKS NICE ON THIS FELLA. BAYLOR WAS THE IN-HOUSE WATCH BRAND FOR ZALES IN THE 60s AND 70s. THEY MADE SOME PRETTY MEMORABLE CHRONOGRAPHS AND SPORTS WATCHES AND ARE MOST FAMOUS FOR BUYING OUT A LARGE CHUNK OF HEUER STOCK IN THE 70s AND MAKING THEIR IDENTICAL VERSIONS. THIS WATCH HAS A LOT OF GROOVY STYLING PACKED INTO A CLASSY YET SPORTY CASE. SUCH A FUN ONE TO WEAR.
