I check up on a blog dedicated to Green Bay Packers uniforms (I know, kinda geeky) from time to time. Found this item that is worth sharing here.

Auction Gold - 1962 Championship Watch
A very rare 1962 World Champions watch has now come up for auction at Leland's. These wristwatches were given in lieu of rings to Lombardi's second championship squad.

Lot 428: 1962 GREEN BAY PACKERS WORLD CHAMPIONS WATCH

The 1962 Green Bay Packers, under the guidance of legendary coach Vince Lombardi, went 13-1 and defeated the New York Giants to capture their eighth NFL championship. This commemorative watch was inscribed on the back and presented to Tom Miller, who played for the club in 1946 but was an executive with the team in 1962. The watch has some scuffing and does not work, but it's still a dazzling piece of jewelry, a 14k gold Hamilton watch featuring team logo on the face with small diamonds serving as the numbers, as well as "Green Bay Packers 1962 World Champions N. F. L." inscribed. The back of the watch has "Tom Miller - Green Bay 16 – New York 7" inscribed.

Kind of interesting to note that big, gawdy championship rings were not always the norm. This is kind of a neat 14K gold Hamilton with diamond markers. I wonder if any others are floating around out there? smile

Interesting find. It's kind of funny, before the huge rings, >>

That is probably why they put it on a LONG flex band smile (n/t)

That is pretty interesting. I had no idea there was anything ever given out other than rings.
