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.
