Baylor Watch Co. is not a name you hear that often and for that exact reason that is why we love Baylor watches (I personally own one too), they provide such great value for money and have impeccable style. Baylor Watch Co. was once under the umbrella of Benrus from the 1950s through the 1970s and had a strong presence in the United States as it was retailed by Zales Jewelry Company. Heuer made numerous watches for Zales under the Baylor watch name. When Heuer decide to unload most all their mechanical and automatic watches and concentrate on the automatic chronograph Zales purchase the entire stock for pennies on the dollar, thus why they are a fantastic value proposition with reliable and strong movements. Just don't tell too many people about this little known watch fact so you can still buy a Baylor for a reasonable price....shhhhh!
