Lot 7075: Scarce circa 1967 Apple Records promotional wristwatch, measuring 1.5 x 1.5 one a 9? 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." Includes the original gift box with the cover detached at the hinge, also gilt-stamped "Old England" and reading, "Original design by Richard Loftus," along the side. In fine condition, with a few light marks and dings; 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. An attractive Beatles collectible made even rarer by the presence of the original box.
