The 14k gold watch includes the sought after Movado Ref. 44776 Triple Calendar mechanical movement. Aside from being an excellent example of the timepiece, the engraving on the rear of the watch is the source of most of the value with the personal inscription to FDR, "with loyalty, respect, and affection." The watch will be offered with authentication papers. Antiquorum's always conservative price estimate anticipates a closing price of $50,000 - $60,000 - likely to yield more.
The FDR Tiffany & Co. watch will be one of the lots available at the June 11th Antiquorum "Important Collectors" watch and clock auction held in new New York City.
