Elvis’ Omega watch breaks world record at auction

Elvis supposedly gave the self-winding, center-seconds, water-resistant, stainless steel and pink gold-capped chronometer wristwatch to Charlie Hodge, a friend from the U.S army.

Antiquorum president and CEO Evan Zimmerman said: “Antiquorum is proud to add to its growing list of world records for timepieces with important provenance that includes Ghandi’s Zenith pocket watch, Steve McQueen’s Rolex and Einstein’s Longines.”
