The Collectible Watch Co™ brand was established in 1993 by American watch designer
and producer John DeMatteo. He quickly teamed up with prestigious Swiss watch maker Gallet & Co.
(the oldest watch brand on earth) to launch the Legends in Time™ series, an exclusive
line of timepieces celebrating our great sports heroes, leaders and artists for the serious collector.
Bernard Gallet head the production of the limited edition timepieces. Watches were produced at factories
in La Chaux-de-fonds, Switzerland, and Besancon, France.
Starting with Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb these hot collectibles have been featured since 1993
in print, television, sold in more than 100 stores and touted in trade publications as
"the best in the field"
With extensive experience in the sports collectible and watch industries, it was a natural for
this watch designer to join two great collectible markets so closely related together to create
a very special product line.
The Legends in Time™ series now feature original baseball and basketball cards.
