A few months after he was presented with the watch, DiMaggio gave it as a gift to close personal friend and confidant, Paul "Skinny" D'Amato, owner of the world famous 500 Club in Atlantic City. It was "Skinny" who would break the news to Joe D. about the death of his ex-wife, Marilyn Monroe. Watch is in Excellent shape, presented in its original Lord Elgin case (one of the hinges is broken). Included is an LOA from the daughter of Paul D'Amato attesting to the above and photo documentation of D'Amato at various functions with DiMaggio.
