Baylor Diver c. 1970s



How cool would it be to walk into your local Zales store and find beauties like this adorning their showcases?  Well, if you hopped into a time machine and set your coordinates to the mid 1970s, thats exactly what what you would have found.  Baylor was the in house brand for Zales at that time and they happen to have had some very cool designs across their range from divers like this to chronographs and others.  This diver is one my favorites as everything about it is just right.  They often seem to age very well with that warm cream patina we all love.  Its very comfortable, sits well on the wrist and an easy to read design.  Love it!
