Description

    Babe Ruth Wristwatch. Among Babe Ruth's innumerable endorsements there appeared this attractively designed timepiece. Likely marketed in 1948, it features a portrait image of the Babe with facsimile autograph. Though it doesn't run, we believe it needs nothing more than a jeweler's cleaning. It is Swiss made and this particular piece retains its original flexible band. It is mounted in its original designer plastic case that approximates the size of a regulation baseball. The lid is cracked, which again, could readily be repaired. The watch is EX-MT, and the presentation of the case is good -- both of which invite improvement. This in one of Ruth's last endorsements through a triumphant career, both on the field and in the concrete canyon of Madison Avenue.
