Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather is an astounding mafia movie masterpiece, but it wouldn’t have been the same without the talent at the center of the film: Marlon Brando. After winning the 1973 Oscar for Best Actor, Brando was gifted this Rolex Datejust watch.

Marlon Brando’s Rolex Datejust is a vintage stainless steel 31mm timepiece that will make any film buff ecstatic. Don Vito Corleone is one of Brando’s most iconic roles and this Rolex watch pays tribute to his famous performance with “Vito’s” and “MB” inscribed on the back of the case. After three years, Brando gave the timepiece to Oscar-nominated designer Patricia Norris in 1976. To prove its authenticity, you’ll get a handwritten letter of provenance from the previous owner, who bought the watch after Norris passed. The watch is up for auction until May 11, but you’ll need some deep pockets to take it home. If you’re a fan of Brando or the incredible Godfather trilogy, this is an offer you can’t refuse.
