This watch was once owned and worn by one of the most celebrated cultural icons of the 20th century, Elvis Presley. The striking Geneve timepiece is crafted from hammered 14K yellow gold, creating a uniquely textured surface. The watch was later gifted by Elvis to his close friend and backup singer J.D. Sumner.

Elvis possessed a love for gospel music beginning at an early age - not only did it influence him as a singer, but it also provided a source of calm and support throughout his demanding career. His passion led him to form a close friendship with the American gospel singer J.D. Sumner, whom Elvis looked up to as a teenager. Sumner became a mentor to the young singer, and after Elvis launched his career, he hired Sumner and his quartet as his backup singers in 1971. The group toured with Presley for six years until his death in 1977, after which Sumner would sing at his dear friend's funeral. Sumner continued his career as a singer until his death in 1998. He was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1984 and the Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame in 1997.

The King of both rock 'n roll and fashion trendsetting, Elvis is renowned for his outlandish costumes and stylish accessories, and the gold watch was to become one of his most beloved accouterments. The best-selling solo artist in recorded history, Elvis Presley remains among the most loved and recognized celebrities in the world. Seldom does the opportunity present itself to acquire a piece worn by one of the most celebrated entertainers in recent history.

This watch is accompanied by certificates of authenticity signed by Mike Moon, owner of the Elvis Presley Museum, and Chris Davidson, owner of the Elvis-a-Rama Museum.
