The above diamond and white gold Omega wristwatch, inscribed "Buddy Holly
12-1-58," the date his bride of four months gave it to him as an early Christmas 
present, was recovered by investigators at the site of the February 3, 1959  
plane crash in which Buddy died along with Ritchie Valens and J.P. “The Big
Bopper” Richardson. The watch was later worn by Holly’s father Lawrence
and eventually sold by Heritage Auctions on April 2006 for $155,350.00.
