Description:

Marlon Brando's Personally Owned Rolex Datejust Given After 1973 Oscar Win Engraved "Vito's" & "MB" W/Letter of Provenance - This vintage stainless steel 31mm Rolex Datejust was given to actor Marlon Brando after he won the award for Best Actor at the 1973 Academy Awards for his role in The Godfather. The back of the case is inscribed "Vito'" and "MB", which is a reference to his iconic character "Don Vito Corleone". Marlon Brando is considered by many as one of the greatest and most influential actors of all time. He was ranked by the American Film Institute as the fourth-greatest movie star among male movie stars whose screen debuts occurred in or before 1950, and was one of only four professional actors (along with Charlie Chaplin, Ronald Reagan and Marilyn Monroe) named in 1999 by Time magazine as one of its 100 Most Important People of the Century. The watch was given by Brando to Academy Award nominated designer Patricia Norris in 1976 after the pair developed a friendship and he told her that he wanted her to have the timepiece and that it "would fit her well." The watch measures 8.5" in length and will be accompanied by a handwritten letter of provenance from the previous owner who purchased the watch after Patricia Norris passed away. Serial #: 2402553. Please see attached letter of provenance.
