Elvis Omega Watch Sets World Record at Auction

 Nothing compares to the extravagance of the Elvis Presley era, when the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and his showy style conquered the stage and ushered in a period of gratification.

Elvis’ fashion sensibilities enticed fans and had them dying to know what he’d wear next.

Though his legacy lives on forever in his music, his accessories will also make quite the statement. He was a fashion rebel and then and now, as proved by Antiquorum’s auction of his Omega.

According to National Jeweler, the King’s Omega Constellation reigned supreme at Antiquorum last week, garnering $52,500 and setting a new world record for that reference at auction. The sale price was nearly three times its high pre-sale estimate of $20,000.

Elvis Presley gave the self-winding, center-seconds, water-resistant, stainless steel and pink gold-capped chronometer wristwatch to Charlie Hodge, a friend of his whom he met while serving in the U.S. Army, after Hodge remarked how much he liked it.

If you’re still sitting around in a white sequined jumpsuit, depressed that you weren’t the highest bidder, here’s how you can emulate Elvis’ iconic style.
