Watch Wednesday ~ Elvis’ watch sells for over $52k

I wonder what “The King of Rock ‘n Roll” would have thought about his watch selling for over $52,000 dollars yesterday at auction? Elvis’ Omega watch is quite a rare piece.

Pictured to the left is Elvis in the Army, wearing the watch. Elvis’s Omega is self-winding with center-seconds and is water-resistant. It is stainless steel with a pink gold-capped chronometer. The wrist watch also has a black dial and was produced in 1960. Few watches owned by Elvis remain from this era, so it makes it very unique. Antiquorum, where the watch was auctioned off, thought that the piece would sell for an estimated $20,000, but bids quickly jumped to a final bidding price of $52,500. The winning bidder also received, a letter from Charlie Hodge, the watch’s previous owner, who was a longtime friend of Elvis.

See another Elvis watch that sold in Maine for $24,000. The buyer was going to use it to raise money for a special needs hospital for kids.
