Warren County Report
Warren County Report has learned that a watch forfeited by White House gatecrasher Tareq Salahi Friday to settle an approximately $2,000 judgment against him and his wife does not appear to work but upon examination seems authentic.
The watch was delivered to UPS in Front Royal approximately 2 pm this afternoon to be overnighted for repair, evaluation of authenticity and appraisal.
Sources who saw the Patek Philippe Geneve timepiece described it as having a leather wristband and a clear crystal back which allowed the inner workings to be viewed.
It appeared to be genuine, they said.
A quick check on Ebay shows similar used watches currently priced between $1,600 and $135,000.
