Mr. Bond, $198,000 For Your Watch!

The Rolex worn in "Live and Let Die" by Roger Moore fetched $198,000 USD at Christie's Auction this weekend in Geneva.  The Auction House's pre-auction estimate was slightly higher at $200,000-400,000 USD. The European bidder who won the watch requested to remain anonymous. He is described as being a Bond enthusiast. This Rolex is particularly interesting as it features a buzz saw mechanism and is not a working timepiece. The piece was previously owned by super dealer and collector, Tom Bolt (The Watch Guru)

Tom Bolt in the documentary below talks about how seeing Bond with the Rolex in the film "Live and Let Die" inspired him.
