From the great undefeated heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano comes this remarkable 18K gold and diamond-studded wristwatch that was presented to the great boxer by the members of the War Two Club of Brockton, Mass., where Marciano grew up. Marciano was the World Heavyweight Champion from September 23, 1952, to April 27, 1956, and is the only champion to hold the heavyweight title and go untied and undefeated throughout his career. He defended his title six times. There is no precise dating of when the watch was presented to Marciano, but it is known to have been prior to the club’s closing in the mid- 1960’s. A square face of the gold watch features more than 100 real diamonds elegantly arranged in three rectangles of diminishing dimensions. On the back of the face is the inscription “To Our Champ Rocky Marciano, Friends War 2.” The watch gives every appearance of being in working order and in essentially as-issued and problem-free condition, including the delicate linked watch band that also is seemingly without issue. The watch is accompanied by a letter of provenance from Rocky Marciano’s brother Pete Marciano.
 BEAUTIFUL GOLD AND DIAMOND WATCH PRESENTED TO ROCKY MARCIANO AND INSCRIBED "TO OUR CHAMP ROCKY MARCIANO FRIENDS WARD 2"
