Elvis’ watch, Madonna’s corset for sale

– A watch that was one of Elvis Presley’s last Christmas presents and a corset worn by Madonna on her 1990 “Blond Ambition” tour will be featured at a London auction.

The watch, estimated to sell for $9,500 or more, is a diamond-set Rolex given to Presley in 1976 by his longtime manager, Tom Parker.

It is engraved, “Elvis merry Christmas your pal Col. Tom Parker.”

It was the last Christmas for Presley, who died the following year.

Madonna’s corset by Jean-Paul Gaultier is of green silk with conical cups and beaded fringe, embroidered with candy stripes of opalescent sequins and peppermint bugle beads.

Christie’s estimates that the corset will sell for at least $16,000.

Christie’s previewed the sale Friday. The auction will be Thursday.
