Elvis Presley’s timepiece has collectors all shook up.....
An Omega timepiece belonging to Elvis Presley has been sold for $1.8 million, the rumor is that it is the highest price ever paid for a watch made by the company.
The sale established Omega as one of the most desirable brands in the increasingly heated market for rare vintage watches. The Phillips auction house is known for achieving the highest prices for timepieces with case back stories.
The Elvis Omega is being described as the “most historically significant Elvis Presley-owned watch to ever appear on the market.”
The story of this 18ct white gold wristwatch is that it was presented to Elvis by RCA Records in February 1961, at a charity lunch to celebrate his 75 million records sold worldwide.
The 33 mm timepiece without a doubt is small in size in today’s standards for men, it is a manually-wound Omega calibre 510, and features 44 brilliant cut diamonds surrounding the bezel.
The caseback is engraved with the words: “To Elvis, 75 Million Records, RCA Victor, 12-25-60.”
