Joe DiMaggio's $10 Gold Coin Presentation Watch

US$54,500

About

From the personal collection of baseball Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio comes this presentation watch was given to the sports legend by Harrah's Casino in 1967 in celebration of his 50th birthday. Incorporating a rare 1912 U.S. $10 gold coin, the watch is crafted of 18K gold and punctuated by a fine leather band. The interior of the watch bears two interior inscriptions: "Happy 50 / to Joe / from Harrahs" and "Happy / 50th / JOE / Harrahs". Created by the Swiss watchmaking firm of Sylvan Kocher & Cie. under their Eska brand, this quality timepiece stands as a fantastic, one-one-of-a-kind piece of American sports memorabilia. A cultural icon of America's favorite pastime, DiMaggio led the Yankees to nine World Series wins during his thirteen-year career, which spanned from 1936 to 1951. The son of Sicilian immigrants, he embodied the American Dream and earned his place as the American League’s Most Valuable Player three times over. He cemented his status as a lasting pop idol when he married America's favorite glamor girl, Marilyn Monroe, in 1954, and he still holds the MLB record hitting streak of 56 consecutive games. This is a spectacular opportunity to own a personal artifact from the great "Yankee Clipper" himself. This watch is accompanied by its original letter of authenticity signed by the grandchildren of Joe DiMaggio. Gifted in 1967 9 1/4" length
