One of the ways the Boston Celtics celebrate championships is by issuing special edition watches to their extended family. The team certainly kept the watchmakers busy by winning 16 titles over the period 1957-1986. In keeping with the tradition the offered ladies watch was created for their “Sweet 16” championship in 1986. Housed in its original Hamilton box, this sparkling commemorative reports in like-new condition. More on our website.
Issued to a personal friend on team president “Red” Auerbach, this appealing time-keeper sports a “Sweet 16” basketball design with green shamrock hour position markers with “1986” at 12 o’clock and “NBA” at 6 o’clock. Printed in the field below the basketball design is “World Champion Boston Celtics”. Engraved on the rear clasp is the recipient name “Dodie Guertin June 8, 1986”. Another segment of the clasp is marked “Champion 1/40 10KT Gold Overlay U.S.A. Steel Hinge” and the back plate is etched with “10KT Gold Filled” and “Hamilton”. Original case, papers and box are included.
This is one of three presentation watches issued by the Celtics to members of the Guertin family. Please review our Basketball-Memorabilia category to view the other two lots.
