I watched to live feed, it went from an opening bid of 1million to the second bid of 10milion :lol: :lol: :lol: stalled at 12 then crept up to 15.5! lot of rich folks out there.
I don't think we will ever see the likes of these watches again, the Paul Newman, buzz aldrins speedy, the pogue, Hillary's smiths/rolex and the likes. these were watches bought or worn by blokes because they liked them or issued as a (maybe some hint of publicity but not blatant advertising)functional item , not because it was part of their advertising contract. I doubt we will be collectively gushing over Nadals Astron or bumgardeners stratos in the future. could be wrong but the modern equivalents just don't hold a candle to the watch offerings of the old pioneers. maybe the next generation will view it differently but I can't see it, unless twatter or face crook decide it is important.
