1949 University of Kentucky Men's NCAA Championship watch with a 14K Gold charm/clasp given to S. Lankford. The back of the Bulova watch face says "NCAA Basketball 1949". The front 14K gold charm clasp has 1949 around a basketball logo, with "NCAA Basketball Championships and S. Lankford". The leather band is well worn and appears to be original.
