Time continuum ... Einstein's watch is up for sale

Breaking News

A wrist watch that belonged to Albert Einstein has been put up for auction. Shaped in the tonneau fashion (like a barrel), the 14-carat gold Longines timepiece will be offered with no reserve by the online watch auctioneer, Antiquorum, in New York next month and is expected to fetch between $25,000 (£14,000) and $35,000.

The unique watch was made in 1930 and presented to Einstein on February 16, 1931, in Los Angeles. Collectors will be able to see the timepiece in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Hong Kong before the item is auctioned on October 16.
