Antiquorum’s sale on November 8 includes a watch owned by Osho.
The Rolex Ref. 18148 Guru Osho’s Day-Date Diamond and Ruby in Yellow Gold was customized for guru Osho who is considered one of the most controversial spiritual leaders to have emerged from India during the 20th century.
His teachings emphasize the importance of meditation, awareness, love, celebration courage, creativity and humor. Guru Osho believes these qualities are suppressed by static belief systems, religious tradition and socialization. Osho and his teachings have had a great influence on Western spirituality as well as New Age thought.
The watch was made in 1984. The piece is made of 18K yellow gold center-seconds wristwatch partially after-market set with diamonds and rubies and a non-Rolex 18K yellow gold bracelet set with 31 carats of white diamonds with concealed clasp. The lot is accompanied by photographs of Osho wearing the impressive timepiece.
