In 1960, shortly after Elvis Presley returned from the Army RCA VICTOR which was Elvis Presleys record company let out six smash hit singles which did extremely well and were known worldwide in a very short time. In honor to commemorate this achievement of selling 75 million records by December 25, 1960 RCA gave a diamond Omega/Tiffany
& Co 18K white gold watch to Elvis. This watch was actually given to him at a press event in 1961 ( picture below of him wearing it )
How did the watch make it to Phillips ?
A man who had an uncle that was supposedly close to Elvis Presley actually traded Elvis a Hamilton Diamond Aventura watch to receive this one. I think that is quite interesting and this watch is definitely a piece of history and will do extremely well at auction. We will just have to wait and see how much this piece sells for. Obviously, it will
be nothing close to the Rolex Paul Newman auction we saw fetch millions of dollars but I think it will do just fine.
