I am sharing the below news article mostly because of the good photo of Elvis which is a rare one that we don’t see too often.
Elvis Presley’s watch is up for auction

A watch linked to Elvis Presley is expected to sell for between £40,000 and £50,000 at auction on November 17.
The Corum Buckingham timepiece with a square hobnail dial, black hands and cabochon crown, is engraved with the wording: To Richard from EP.
Elvis was photographed with it on his wrist.
He gave it to Richard Davis, his personal valet and the man responsible for the purchase of much of his wardrobe. He began working for Elvis in the early 1960s.
It is accompanied by an affidavit from Davis stating: “One day Elvis took the watch off his wrist and said there was something wrong with the back of it.
“I turned it over and Elvis had inscribed it to me – he said ‘well I guess it’s yours now’.”
Charlie Hodge, Elvis’s stage director and sometime backing singer, has confirmed the story.
The lot includes photographs of Elvis wearing the watch and a copy of the book Man and his Watch by Matt Hravek in which it is featured.
Sworders Fine Jewellery and Watches will take place online here.

Below is an article which ran recently in the UK regarding a phone call which Elvis made to Gail Brewer-Giorgio back in October, 1988 during the time that she was making so many TV appearances regarding her NY Times bestseller book “Is Elvis Alive?”. This will be older news to those who were involved in all of this way back in the 1980’s-1990’s or even during the 11 1/2 years of my own websites. Again, I share this for the interest of those who are newcomers to the real truth that Elvis did not die in August, 1977.
Elvis Presley ‘alive’: King ‘CALLED woman in 1988 to discuss Lisa Marie’s wedding’
ELVIS PRESLEY died in 1977, leaving his fans, friends, and family devastated – but many people think the King faked his death, and is still living to this day. And during a TV special in 1991, a woman claimed she received a phone call from the late singer to discuss Lisa Marie Presley.

Elvis Presley was 42-years-old when he was pronounced dead. The King of Rock n Roll was found at his Graceland home in Memphis on August 16, 1977. The singer was found in the bathroom by his fiancée, Ginger Alden. The King’s emotional funeral was filled with friends, loved-ones, and people from his past. There is a prevailing theory, however, that the King faked his death.
While the King was spotted in an open casket during his funeral, many theories suggested it was fake, with many other people claiming they had seen him walking around long after his death.
This theory saw even more credibility years after Elvis’ death, as people claimed they had seen him both at Graceland, and indeed at the Bahamas.
In 1991 Bill Bixby held a TV special on the theory that Elvis was alive, called The Elvis Files.
Throughout the show Bill explored these stories, and interviewed a number of people who claimed they had seen the star since his death.
Elvis Presley alive: A fan of the King explained how she was called by him
I was friends with Gail Brewer-Giorgio for several years in the late 1980’s and very early 1990’s. Tom and I visited in Gail’s home in January, 1990 and Gail played the full tape of her phone conversation with Elvis for us to hear. I immediately recognized that it definitely was Elvis’ voice in the call. When I heard him speaking about his wanting to come out and heard his encouraging words to Gail, I became even more adamant in my support of Gail which led to my publishing my own newsletter, with Gail’s blessing, from July 1990 thru March 1991. That newsletter ultimately resulted in my being contacted by a man who knew Elvis. This man only contacted me after I stopped my newsletter and he told me, near the end of our phone conversation, that Elvis really did like my newsletter. I had secretly been sending my newsletter to someone who I felt certain was still friends with Elvis asking that my newsletters be passed along to Elvis.
Below is a photo of me with Gail during our Jan. 1990 visit in Gail’s home.
