A gold 1950s Rolex owned by the late Christian Evangelist Billy Graham, has been put up for sale on eBay with a price of $900,000 (or best offer).
Mr Graham was a pioneering pastor who died in February at the age of 99. During his career he reportedly ministered 11 US presidents including Truman, Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
International Vintage Watch Company IVWC, a Beverly Hills based luxury and vintage watch e-commerce company, is offering the watch on its own website as well as on Ebay.
According to IVWC, the 9ct gold Rolex ref 5015 bubbleback automatic was gifted to Mr Graham’s assistant Lee Fisher. Its case back is inscribed with the message: God Bless you, Billy Graham.
It is being sold on a brown crocodile strap with original Rolex buckle, presented in its original Rolex box.
With 25 days to go on the Ebay placement, the watch had received no bids but was being watched by 10 people.
It can also be bought on Chrono24, where IVWC has been trading since 2014 and has a near perfect trusted seller’s rating.
