Posted Dec 9, 2010

The guy in the top right partying with Christopher Reeve is named Bob. Bob put this watch for sale on eBay at a price of $9.95. The watch sold for $66,100 in the final auction price. He bought the watch for cheap at a Navy Exchange.

Why did the watch sell for so high? It turns out that this item was coveted by watch collectors everywhere. This is the same watch worn by Sean Connery in the Dr. No and Goldfinger movies. Although this is not the same watch actually worn by Connery, it is still valuable. The same type of watch sold for $100,000 at an auction in 2008.
