Watches once owned by celebrities may not be the most valuable items in Antiquorum’s June 9th sale of timepieces, but they certainly offer the most colorful histories. Included are SteveMcQueen’s Heuer “Monaco” wristwatch, which he famously wore in the 1971 movie “Le Mans,” as well as McQueen’s Rolex Submariner and Frank Sinatra’s pink gold Gruen, offered with a gold necklace whose links spell out the singer’s name.
A Movado retailed by Tiffany & Co. and presented to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on his 63rd and last birthday will also be featured in the sale, along with Sammy Davis Jr.’s Cartier Pasha, given to him by Frank Sinatra with the inscription, “Sammy I Luv Ya F.A.S.”Â Out of the timepiece category but still firmly in the celebrity niche is Steve McQueen’s Von Dutch 1929 Scott Super Squirrel motorcycle, restored by Kenny “Von Dutch” Howard. It’s estimated to sell for $80-$120,000.
