Elvis Presley Omega watch to be auctioned
One of Elvis Presley’s watches will be featured at an auction of Important and Modern Vintage Timepieces on June at Antiquorum Auctioneers in new York City.
Elvis gifted the Omega Black Dial Constellation calendar watch to his longtime friend and confidante Charlie Hodge, a musician who played with Presley and who was honored at the 2007 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Hodge recalls, “… several times I told Elvis how beautiful his watch was … and he took it off his wrist and gave it to me.”
The self-winding, center-seconds, water-resistant, stainless steel and pink gold-capped chronometer wristwatch with black dial was produced circa 1960. The winner of this watch, expected to sell for $10,000 – $20,000, will receive a letter of attestation signed by Hodge.
Few watches owned by Elvis remain from this era and considering his professional relationship with Hamilton watches and sizable collection of Hamilton and Rolex watches, this Omega is great collector’s item and piece of Elvis memorabilia.
