As some of you may remember, most won’t, about 12 months ago I posted about a watch’ which lead to a half hearted discussion on watches in general, with the general attitude to watches being rather apathetic.
Well just to let you know that there are quite a few people in the world with a rather different attitude. I’m sure you all know the actor Paul Newman? Well in 1968 he was given a Rolex Daytona by his wife, and wore it until he gave it to a friend in the late 70’s.
It has just sold at auction, after several minutes of heavy bidding, for US $ 17,750,500.00 . There are some pretty serious watch collectors around the place. Like I said 12 months ago, it’s not just about telling the time.
