Today's offering showcases this Savoy Icon mens owned by Martin Sheen accompanied by a photograph of him being gifted it at the 2013 Dubai International Film Festival. Sheen is an Emmy, Golden Globe, and SAG award-winning actor best known for his leading role as Captain Benjamin Willard in Apocalypse Now, as U.S. President Josiah Bartlet in the television series The West Wing, and as Robert Hanson in the Netflix television series Grace and Frankie.
Mr. Sheen's Savoy Icon Extreme offers a sharp and highly stylized design with a modern edge. It features a massive rose gold plated case with stainless steel back and rotating divers bezel. It measures 45mm in diameter excluding the crown.
Its beautiful bezel rotates in one direction to safely keep track of dive times or elapsed times, and its striking dial has a wonderful dimensional quality to it.
The bracelet is rubber and terminates in a signed deployment clasp.
Powering the watch is a quartz movement that never needs to be wound.
The watch still retains its original protective sticker on the back and presents in nearly new condition. We have not cleaned it since receiving it. The only overhauling we did was install a new battery making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Accompanying the watch are its original boxes.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. international warranty on the movement and its function.
Accompanying it is a Certificate of Authenticity and Provenance from a well-known auction house and a Certificate of Authenticity from Connoisseur of Time. Martin Sheen: A life of Art and Impact:
