June 18 - Tell Time Like A King

A watch given by Elvis Presley to a friend while on military duty in the late 1950s has sold for over Elvis gave the Omega Constellation to army buddy Charlie Hodge and it was snapped up by a collector for more than five times its estimate. It would have been worth just less than $1,500 had it not be worn on the wrist of The King.  The watch sold at Antiquorum auctions in New York and went for a total of $52,922.80. It is thought the singer bought the timepiece for himself and it is known that he had it when he was stationed in Germany with his friend Charlie who died recently.
