60 year old watch auction leaves a family shaken and stirred...<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
The vintage Rolex Oyster Perpetual Submariner timepiece is almost identical to the one worn by Roger Moore's Bond in Live and Let Die.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
This one dates back to 1964 and had been in the same family in East Anglia since new.<br />
<br />
It sparked a bidding war when it went under the hammer with Lockdales Auctioneers, of Martlesham Heath, Suffolk.
