Adolf Hitler's watch was sold for a whopping $1.1 million at an auction in the US
The watch made by German watch firm Huber was sold to an anonymous bidder at the Alexander Historical Auctions in Maryland.
The watch was given to Hitler most likely on April 20, 1933, on his 44th birthday when he became the Chancellor of Germany, the auction house said.
The watch was taken as a war souvenir when a group of some 30 French soldiers stormed the Berghof, Hitler’s mountain retreat on May 4, 1945, the auctioneer said.
Among the members of the group was Sergeant Robert Mignot, who returned to France with the watch, resold it to his cousin, according to the auction house.
The watch has remained in the exclusive possession of the Mignot family and has never been offered for sale before, it added.
