60 year old watch auction leaves a family shaken and stirred...
A James Bond-style Rolex watch that has been in the same family for nearly 60 years has sold for a whopping £182,400 - Over £100,000 over its estimate.
The vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner timepiece is almost identical to the one worn by Roger Moore's Bond in Live and Let Die.
He also donned a similar wristwatch in The Man with the Golden Gun, while George Lazemby wore one in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.
This one dates back to 1964 and had been in the same family in East Anglia since new.
It sparked a bidding war when it went under the hammer with Lockdales Auctioneers, of Martlesham Heath, Suffolk.
