This lot has closed

Estimate: $1000+

Description

Scarce circa 1967 Apple Records promotional wristwatch, measuring 1.5 x 1.5, on an 8.5″ long suede black band. The back of the watch is engraved "Old England," and the band is stamped in gold, "Made in England, Old England, Copyright Old England Watches Ltd 1967." In fine condition, with light crazing to the face and rubbing to maker's mark on reverse of band; watch's function is temperamental but may work intermittently. This was one of just three officially licensed Beatles watches produced during the 1960s, and by some estimates only about one hundred were manufactured.
