War Eagle ! The intersection of Magnolia Avenue and College street in Auburn, which marks the transition from downtown Auburn to the university campus, is known as Toomer's Corner. It is named for businessman and State Senator Sheldon Toomer who founded the Bank of Auburn on the corner of Magnolia Avenue and College street in 1907. Toomer's Drugs is a small business on the corner that has been an Auburn landmark for over 130 years. Hanging over the corner were two massive southern live oak trees, and anytime anything good happened concerning Auburn, toilet paper could usually be found hanging from the trees. Also known as "rolling the corner", this tradition is thought to have originated in the 1950s to celebrate away victories; however, in recent years it has become a way to celebrate anything good that happens concerning Auburn. On January 10, 2011 when Auburn Football won the BCS National Championship game, a celebration was held at the corner which involved the traditional papering. The trees were removed on April 23, 2013 due to poisoning in 2010.

The iconic Nato watch is inspired by military field watches from the 1940’s. The matte white dial features a school logo at the 12 hour and a school color second hand. The stainless steel watch case and strap hardware features a rich brushed finish. The nylon watch strap shows off school pride with multi-color webbing.
