This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This lot features a limited edition Fossil watch and collectors display that has been signed by Muhammad Ali on the outside in silver marker. All experts will agree that the most valuable of the early Fossil Limited Editions is the LI-2004 Muhammad Ali Limited Edition Collector's Watch Set. "The Greatest" is the fourth limited edition in the licensed watches that Fossil started in 1992.
"The Greatest" came out in August 1994 and only 7500 were produced, this one is numbered #7,234/7,500. The original retail price was $200, which at the time was the most expensive limited edition that came out. The item is packaged in a nicely designed wooden box with a glass top that showcases the 6"x7" autographed photo of Ali/Liston championship fight on May 25, 1965. The Ali signature is done in a silver paint pen which will not fade over time.
Once inside the cherry display box, you'll find the watch. A Fossil coin dial watch with Ali's face is on it with the words "3 Time World Champion". The watch does have a unique tin obviously made just for this set. Fossil was also nice enough to include a COA. These sets are now being offered on eBay and through other outlets for $1,195-$1,500. Extremely coveted Muhammad Ali collectible that would look great displayed in any home or office.
