Re: Baylor Watch Company is from Texas

I am trying to find out information on this watch. It is a Baylor automatic Gold electroplated bezel water and shock resistance antimagnetic and I assume it is a ladies watch.

Thank You

Roger Swanson

: Baylor is the name of a watch firm that was and
: may be still owned by the giant Dallas
: (Texas)retail jewelry firm of Zales. Heuer
: made numerous watches for Zales under the
: Baylor watch name. When Heuer decide to
: unload most all their mechancial and
: automatic watches and concentrate on the
: automatic chronograph Zales purchase the
: entire stock for pennies on the dollar. This
: is the story as told to me by one of the
: former top manager for Zales. Baylor is a
: American watch company and I would quess
: that it was named after a Texas University
: that is located in Dallas. What do you
: think, Jeff?
