Own a bit of Hollywood memorabilia: Marlon Brando’s watch is going up for auction

vacheron-constantin-brandoThe movie “On the Waterfront” is a classic. A masterpiece of directing, writing, and acting.. it features Marlon Brando at the peak of his ability. Much like the Vacheron & Constantin presented to a young Mr. Brando by his co-star, Eva Gabor to celebrate his Oscar nomination. And much like the fighter that he portrayed, the watch is slightly worn around the edges, but is made from 18k gold. It’s also coming up for auction on September 17th, and expected to sell for anywhere from $3000 – $5000 dollars.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.

  1. This looks like a model similar to mine.It must have the 1001 V&C movement.In it’s day,this was one of the slimmest manual wind movements and the ultimate in elegance.Only the best for Marlon.I’m sure he appreciated the gift from Zsa Zsa Gabor.
