When RGM first introduced the RGM PS-801-BB Baseball in Enamel watch it was unveiled at the NAWCC watch and clock museum in Columbia PA.   The NAWCC featured an article on the RGM watch and the Antique Waltham watch that inspired it. They appeared on the cover of their magazine the "Bulletin", all members of the NAWCC receive this publication. It was entitled   "Baseball in Enamel: RGM Celebrates the American Pastime and Creates an American Masterpiece"  by Adam R. Harris – exhaustive details of which are contained within the article.

When someone associated with the Lerner company and also a member of NAWCC received a copy of their publication with the baseball watch on the cover, it was decided that they would order a custom version of the watch for Mr. Lerner, the owner of the company, and the owner of the Major League Baseball Washington Nationals club, so RGB is delighted that an MLB owner now owns one of their special and rare Baseball watches.

As the watch is custom made for Mr. Lerner, it had to feature the Nationals logo on the watch.  The logo is on the dial at 12, and engraved on the balance bridge on the movement.  The owners’ initials are also on the watch, and it can be customized to have other initials together with the logo on it.

The 43mm watch is powered by RGM’s in-house Caliber 801 movement. It is manually wound with up to 44-hours power reserve, and it is viewable through the sapphire crystal case back.

Two other RGM PS-801-BB watches are on the wrists of Minor league baseball owners, but this was the first that would belong to an MLB owner.  The watch is a limited edition of 10 pieces, customizable to include initials in Stainless steel, but these are already sold out. There are also 5 models in gold and 3 in platinum available.
