Thought as summer is upon us here, I would share one of Baseball Heroes of old, George "Babe" Ruth Jr. These watches were produced in 1949 by Exacta Time and support a Swiss made mechanical movement. The strap on this is not an original, but with fix-lug case, this rivet lock strap is fitting and looks good.
These watches were produced shortly after his death in Aug 1948. George Herman "Babe" Ruth, Jr. (February 6, 1895 – August 16, 1948), was an American baseball outfielder and pitcher who played 22 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) from 1914 to 1935. Nicknamed "the Bambino" and "the Sultan of Swat", he began his career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting (and some pitching) records, including career home runs (714), slugging percentage (.690), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164), some of which have been broken.He was one of the first five inductees into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936.
Thanks for looking.
