A wristwatch believed to have been worn by neurosurgeon Dr. Kemp Clark at the time in which he signed John F. Kennedy’s death certificate on November 22nd 1963 is now slated to be auctioned off at Christie’s on December 17th, where it’s expected to bring up to $150,000. This 18-carat Patek Philippe timepiece was originally purchased by the physician’s mother for $750 in 1948. It is said that a portion of the auction proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross.

If you can’t afford that, tis the season for lots of related ephemera to pop up on eBay, like this newspaper. Happy browsing, morbid bastards!
