Our friends over at Hodinkee give us the lowdown on a soon to be famous vintage Heuer Monaco worn by Rat Pack legend, Sammy Davis Jr. Now what makes this watch really special is that it may have been worn before Steve McQueen put it on the map when he wore it for the film Le Mans. The watch is expected to fetch $4000-$6000 when it goes up for auction this June, though we have to agree with Hodinkee that it will probably end up going for much more. Whether or not Sammy was first to wear the Monaco, it definitely adds a significant and important piece of history to the Monaco lore. Link
