Description

    Elvis Presley Customized Watch, Owned and Worn by Redd Foxx. Before the famous "TCB" necklaces, there were the custom-made "Elvis Presley" watches that the King gifted to his special inner circle of family, friends, selected staff, band members, and other privileged insiders. Owning the watch identified the wearer as one with "all access" status at Elvis' concerts and tours. This particular watch was presented as a gift from Elvis to his friend, comedian and actor Redd Foxx. The watch is from a design that Elvis commissioned of famed Memphis jeweler Harry Levitch in 1969, who crafted the signature a bezel with "Elvis Presley" in raised circular letters. The best estimate is that only 24-50 of these watches were made, making each one a prized collectible. The premium watch is a Mathey-Tissot model, self-winding , water resistant, with a sweeping second hand, a day/date display, a stainless steel underside, and a striking brown leather cuff-style band. Still functional, with minimal wear, this one comes with a b&w snapshot of Foxx with the Presleys on their wedding day at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas, 1967, a few years before he was presented the watch by Elvis.
