We think this gold Longines watch is probably one of the more interesting objects you could own from Albert Einstein. He once said, "the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one." Too bad we can't ask him what a real timepiece should look like.

If you'd like to own Einstein's personal Swiss wristwatch from 1930, here is your chance. Antiquorum is auctioning it off 16 October 2008 in New York City.

Valued between $25,000 and $35,000, I imagine it will go much higher, especially given the included photos showing Einstein wearing the watch.
