No strangers to bragging rights, the Celtics celebrated their 16th NBA championship with this official team-issued watch. Produced by leading watchmaker Omega this special edition commemorative presents like-new and comes housed in its original box. More on our website.
Design details include a basketball centered on the watch face with “Sweet 16” in white surrounded by green shamrock hour positions with “1986” at 12 o’clock, “NBA” at 6 o’clock and a day of the month calendar box at 3 o’clock. Printed in black below the basketball is “World Champion Boston Celtics”. Issued to a prominent Boston lawyer and friend of team president “Red” Auerbach, this handsome timepiece is accompanied by its original Omega case and papers along with an Omega box. The recipient’s name is engraved on the rear clasp as “Jack Guertin June 8, 1986. Etched into the watch’s back plate is “B&A 10K Gold Filled” and “Hamilton” and a segment of the clasp is marked “Champion Stainless Steel U.S.A. 1/40 10KT R.G.P. Trim”.
