You probably saw the old photo appear on a Time magazine cover after his death.

A number of fashion items from late Apple CEO Steve Jobs were recently sold at auction, including a Seiko watch described by the auction house as being “heavily worn,” CNET writes. The article says Jobs wore the watch in a 1984 photo that Time magazine used for its cover of a special commemorative issue after he died of cancer in 2011. Other items sold include a pair of his Birkenstock sandals ($2,750) and one of his signature black turtlenecks with the Next logo on the front ($7,500).

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
