The JFK Marilyn Monroe Happy Birthday Mr. President President!!!

Questionable Authenticity

Alert: It has come to our attention after publishing this story that the authenticity of this watch is questionable. This information comes from a highly reliable source. 

We are currently investigating the authenticity of this watch and as soon as we conclude we will let you know.

Marilyn Monroe supposedly gave this Yellow Gold Day-Date Rolex "President" to U.S. President Kennedy.  The watch sold on October 18, 2005 for $120,000. 

Marilyn Monroe gave this Yellow Gold Rolex President to President Kennedy the night she famously sang "Happy Birthday."

The watch case also contains a poem, written on a small piece of paper, titled "A Heartfelt Plea on Your Birthday."  The Poem reads:

"Let lovers breathe their sighs and roses bloom and music sound.
Let  passion burn on the lips and eyes and pleasures merry world go round.
Let golden sunshine flood the sky and let me love or let me die."

Marilyn Monroe was dead two months later and JFK was dead 6 months later.

Indeed reality is stranger than fiction and this kind of illustrates that the candle that burns twice as bright lasts half as long...
