Today's offering showcases this elegant ladies TechnoMarine TechnoDiamond chronograph that was owned and worn by Dame Olivia Newton-John.
Dame Newton-John is best known as leading lady Sandy who starred alongside Hollywood legend John Travolta in Grease, one of the most popular movies of all time.
Its enormous popularity has endured through the years - when it was re-released for its 20th anniversary in 1998 it ranked as the second highest-grossing film behind Titanic in its opening weekend. Its soundtrack is also one of the most successful in history, with the single "You're the One That I Want", with John Travolta, one of the best selling singles of all time.
Besides achieving legendary status as an actress, she is an amazingly accomplished singer. She is a four-time Grammy award winner who has amassed five number-one and ten other top ten Billboard Hot 100 singles, and two number-one Billboard 200 solo albums. Her four Grammys include winning for Best Country Female, Record of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Performance – Female.
She has also won a People's Choice Award for Favorite Film Actress, and was nominated for a Golden Globe as Best Actress in a Musical and won an Academy of Country Music award for Most Promising Female Vocalist.
Eleven of her singles (including two platinum) and fourteen of her albums (including two platinum and four double platinum) have been certified gold by the RIAA. She has sold an estimated 100 million records worldwide, making her one of the world's best-selling artists of all time.
She became just the second woman to have two singles – "Hopelessly Devoted to You" and "Summer Nights" – in the Billboard top 5 simultaneously.
Besides her incredible success as an actress and a singer, she has long been an advocate for many humanitarian causes and recently raised $2.4 million dollars for cancer research. She is a cancer survivor.
This full-sized ladies chronograph, which has a strong 39mm diameter, is a fitting size for a confident woman. It is the special Millenium Edition made to commemorate the year 2000.
It is bejewelled with two full rows of sparkling very high quality original TechnoMarine factory diamonds set all around the bezel. Hour markers 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11 & 12 of the mother of pearl dial also feature an original TechnoMarine brilliant cut diamond.
While most of these watches came equipped with straps, this one came equipped with the original TechnoMarine bracelet option.
It is in very good condition and has been left just as we acquired it. It was well-loved by Ms. Newton-John.
Our Master Watchmaker has installed a new battery and performed any needed servicing making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a two-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function and a Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity and Provenance.
Our new Connoisseur of Time Celebrity and Historical Events Collection:
I am very pleased to have just launched our new Celebrity and Historical Events Collection, which will be composed of watches owned by celebrities or that were given to commemorate an important historical event.
This watch will be followed by watches from Elvis Presley, Jerry Lewis, Burt Reynolds, Olivia Newton-John, heavyweight champion Jack Dempsey, and clocks from Bob Hope and Jerry Lewis.
I look forward to offering others as well to keep the collection constantly fresh and expanding.
Also coming soon is a watch given a handful of years after the Civil War concluded by the Vice President Elect to honor an Army commander who went on to receive the Medal of Honor. This will be an exciting new collection you won't want to miss!
