BAYLOR EPSA WORLD TIME SUPERCOMPRESSOR 42MM STAINLESS VINTAGE DIVER 42MM AUTOBaylor
For auction is a great vintage world time diver from Baylor. Long before it became a staple of most malls, Zales was a high end jeweler in Houston, Texas. Their in-house brand was called Baylor, a nod to the local university. When they went looking for a great design for a dive watch, they went to the best. E. Piquerez SA (EPSA) was a case manufacturer that came out with a very specific diver style that featured an internal rotating bezel and a spring loaded screw back that got tighter as the watch experienced greater pressure underwater. Of course, we are talking about the Super Compressor. Of all the Super Compressor styles, the oversized 42mm cases are the most desirable. This Baylor has the large size case, the big signed crowns, the original superdome crystal and a totally unique caseback with a school of fish. It is also original and unpolished. If you have no Super Compressors, or a whole collection of them, this unpolished original Baylor is a more than worthy addition.
