Watch believed used to time JFK's death for sale

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - A wristwatch that's believed to have been used to declare the time of President John F. Kennedy's death is going on the auction block in New York City.

The 18-carat Patek Philippe (PAH'-tehk fih-LEEP') timepiece worn by a Texas neurosurgeon is estimated to bring up to $150,000 at Christie's on Dec. 17.

The watch used by Dr. Kemp Clark was made in 1948. His mother bought it for him a year later for $750.

A portion of the auction proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross.
