The 1955 Orange Bowl Watch

A white with gold trim watch featuring a logo of a football player punting a football. It has a leather handle, and reads "Orange Bowl Classic 1955."

Nebraska’s second ever trip to a Bowl game was again an unsuccessful one losing to the Duke Blue Devils 34-7.  However without Nebraska’s first invitation to the Orange Bowl players would not have been given there gift bags and this piece of Husker history wouldn’t exist.  One item the players received from the Orange Bowl committee was this watch.   I have never seen it before acquiring this one and haven’t seen one since.  Very rare and unique, this 1955 Orange  Bowl watch is in very good condition and still in working order.  Featuring a player punting the football, it definitely has a 1950’s feel.
