Marlon Brando's 1954 On The Waterfront Vacheron & Constantin Watch Auction

I wonder what Eva Gabor gave Eddie Albert for Green Acres...perhaps a Porky Pig watch?

Antiquorum will be auctioning this Vacheron Constantin, Geneve, Ref. 4877. Produced in 1954, it was gifted to Marlon Brando by Zsa Zsa Gabor to commemorate the theatrical release of "On the Waterfront", for which Mr. Brando won an Oscar. It is a fine and rare 18K yellow gold wristwatch with patent guilloche dial and engraved case back, "To Marlon - Love - Zsa Zsa - June 24, 1954". Estimate: $3,000 - $5,000

Auction: September 17, 2009

First Session: begins at 11 am
Second Session: begins at 2pm
