Elvis Presley's Omega Wristwatch Sold for $1.8 Million
This is the most important Elvis Presley-owned timepiece to ever appear on the market. This Omega timepiece was retailed by Tiffany & Co. in 1961.
Although Elvis’s Omega was estimated to sell between CHF 50,000 and 100,000, it was sold for €1,517,243/US$1,812,318.
Collectors from around the world took part in its impressive sale that was an exciting climax during session one of Geneva Watch Auction: SEVEN, finally selling a bidder in the room.
Aurel Bacs, Senior Consultant, said: “It was a true honour to offer at auction this superb vintage Omega wristwatch owned and worn by Elvis Presley, the ‘King of Rock and Roll’. The world record result stems from the incredible combination of Elvis’s global appeal, its extraordinary provenance, and one of the most sought after collectors’ brands - Omega.”
