Elvis Presley’s Watch Sells for Record-Breaking $52,500
The man, the legend – it seems as if everybody wants a piece of him. An Omega Constellation watch that belonged to the late Elvis Presley sold for $52,500 at auction to an anonymous bidder on June 12.
It was among one of the notable lots in Antiquorum’s Important Modern and Vintage Timepieces auction (Part 2) in New York City. The bidding was heated and quickly rose from the presale estimate of $10,000 to the final total, over five times the estimate.
The watch features a black “sniper” dial in rose gold with a matte black face and black leather strap. It was worn by Elvis for many years, until he passed it onto his longtime friend and confidant Charlie Hodge, who himself is a known musician and a member of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame.
One of the most attractive features of this lot is that it comes with a detailed letter from Mr. Hodge about his relationship with the King as well as the Omega timepiece.
