An Omega Constellation watch that once belonged to Elvis Presley sold for $52,500—a world record for the reference—at Antiquorum’s auction of Important Modern & Vintage Timepieces, Part 2, in New York City on June 12.

The bids for the timepiece quickly escalated from $10,000 to the final total, which was over five times its pre-sale estimate.

The auction raked in a total of $4,437,225 resulting in a combined spring total of $9,073,713.

The top lot by value was a Patek Philippe tourbillon minute repeater with a custom grey dial that sold for $542,500 to a Chinese phone bidder.

A yellow gold Patek Philippe minute-repeating perpetual calendar raked in $380,500. A. Lange & Söhne's yellow gold Pour le Merite timepiece sold for $188,500, while the Ulysse Nardin Trilogy of Time watch brought in $164,500.
