Adolf Hitler's gold watch will be auctioned for the first time ever. The luxurious custom-made accessory of the former Nazi dictator, which was presented to him by the Nazi party in 1933, is being offered by Alexander Historical Auctions, Metro reports.

 

The asking price starts at a million, but they are expected to be auctioned for at least 4 million euros. The watch was made by the Swiss company LeCoultre and is unique with Hitler's initials, the imperial eagle and the swastika. The engraving of the accessory was completed by Andreas Huber, official watch supplier for the Bavarian Royal Court.

In addition, you will also find three dates engraved on them: Hitler's birthday, the day he won the Nazi party elections and the day he became chancellor. The watch was stolen from the Berghof (Hitler's hideout in the mountains) by French soldier Sergeant Robert Mignot during the closing weeks of World War II (May 4, 1945). Since then, they have been inherited in a soldier's family.

 

The watch is rotatable, which means the face can be turned inwards to be protected. “It's no tribute to the worst man who ever lived. It is an incredibly rare historical artifact. Hitler's watch has never been in an auction before," said Bill Panagopulos of the auction company. The auction is scheduled for July 28, 2022 in Maryland, USA.
