    I collect Texas bowl game watches, and this isn’t one, but it is a unique one, so I picked it up. For those that weren’t aware, this watch uses a battery, but it is not a quartz watch.

    I really like the look (love the alligator wearing a football helmet), especially the “lightning” on the second hand (the second hand motion is different from a mechanical and a quartz watch; it moves about twelve times every five seconds).

    The 1966 Gator Bowl was between Tennessee (winner) and Syracuse (loser, despite having Larry Csonka and Floyd Little in the backfield).
