Buddy Holly’s Omega is up for sale in April and it’s a beaut.
The diamond and white gold Omega wristwatch is inscribed on the back, “Buddy Holly 12-1-58,” the date his bride of four months gave it to him as an early Christmas present. It was recovered at the site of the plane crash by investigators and later worn by Holly’s father in their hometown of Lubbock, Texas.
