Elvis' Rolex For Auction

A Christie's specialist displays a watch showing the engraving, given to Elvis Presley by his manager for Christmas in 1976. 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. The watch estimated at $9,500 to $12,750 will go on sale in the Pop Culture auction on Nov. 29 in London.

Is this even genuine? I have my doubts as it seems out of character for The Colonel to use the word 'pal' and to call himself 'Col. Tom Parker', I thought he always referred to himself as simply 'The Colonel" and this is most definitely what Elvis called him. I would say this is a fake.

not the most original gift from mr Parker considering all the jewelry Elvis already had..

This looks tempting and a cut above some of the artifacts that have been recently on offer. I dont suppose there is a picture in existence with him wearing it, which would push the price up considerably.
