    Cool Baylor (vintage) watch pictures...Please add your own!

    So I have a couple of Baylor watches (am I the only one that likes this brand?) that I have never posted pictures of so I thought I would start with this one.

    Here are some pictures:
    The crystal makes the dial hard to capture but it is lighter in the middle (blue) and then gets darker closer to the edges.






    The caseback lets you know its "swiss made":





    The case shape is one of the things I really like about this watch:







    The band is (painted?) black and has brushed surfaces (even the clasp):







    Anyone else here have some old Baylor watches?

    The House Brands list located in the "Links and Articles" section shows that Baylor was the house brand for Zales House Brands. There is also a link for the history of Zales.

    Yep, I always thought Baylors were rebranded watches. I recall seeing a Baylor that was actually a Heuer.

    Here's my Baylor. It's in my project drawer until I sort out the date set issue. I need to service & install new crystal.

    I got this Baylor about 20 years ago at a Thrift Store.

    Would love to find out more about this piece if possible.
