Description: Joe DiMaggio's 1941 New York Yankees World Championship presentational wristwatch. Hamilton 14K gold wristwatch presented to Joe DiMaggio by Judge Kennesaw Mountain Landis in honor of the Yankees 1941 World Championship. The watch retains its original leather band which exhibits moderate wear with some stiffness to the leather. Watch casing is made of 14K gold with (2) inset diamonds at the top and bottom of the front. Reverse is inscribed, "N.Y. Yankees 1941 World Champions Joe DiMaggio" with crossed bat and ball engraving. The original Hamilton watch buckle is stamped 14K gold. The 1941 season was the most decorated of Joe's entire career as he captured the AL Most Valuable Player award, Baseball Writer's Award, attained his immortal 56 game hit streak, and led the Yankees to the 1941 World Championship. The offered watch was obviously treasured by Joe as it was found, in working order, housed in its original Hamilton case just as the day he had received it from Judge Landis. Includes vintage photograph from April 1942 picturing Judge Landis handing the watch to Joe DiMaggio: EX
