A 116-year-old pocket watch owned by Albert Einstein before he became a renowned genius has sold for more than 13 times its estimate.<br />
<br />
The Swiss timepiece had an estimate of £20,000 but has sold at Christie's in London for a whopping £266,500.<br />
<br />
It is one of three watches known to have been owned by Einstein and passed by direct descent from the theoretical physicist to the seller.
