    Last year I posted about my Babe Ruth Mystery Watch.

    https://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/252150-babe-ruth-mystery-watch

    I've now been able to add the correct box for the watch to my collection! Other than an ad from 1935 (picture attached), I cannot find the watch and box together in any other reference or auction.

    So, the mystery continues. Anyone know anything about them? While I've seen several of the watches in auctions, the box must be extremely rare?

    Fun stuff!!
