WASHINGTON, D.C. – The 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination approaches, and one of the darkest days in American history is being commemorated in many ways.

President Obama and former President Clinton took part in a wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, to honor the late president.

For those in the market for JFK memorabilia, here’s a one of a kind. Christie’s is auctioning the watch worn by Dr. Kemp Clark in 1963, when the president entered Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, giving Clark the exact time of JFK’s death. The Patek Phillipe watch is expected to sell for up to $150,000.

Also, 50 years later, rare audio tapes have been recovered of urgent chatter that took place at the time of shooting, between the White House, the Air Force Command Center and Airforce One.

Lasting impressions of the president whose Camelot ended in Dallas.
