http://www.crunchgear.com/2010/12/08...bid-was-60000/A retired Navy doctor named Bob listed a Rolex watch on eBay that he bought 52 years ago on a Navy exchange on the Kwajalien Atoll. He set the minimum bid at $9.95
According to Crunchgear, the item is a watch dork's holy grail -- A "Bond" Rolex Submariner Ref 5510, "the same model Sean Connery wore in Dr. No, Goldfinger, and Thunderball." The closing bid for the watch was $66,100.
The best part is Bob has a full set of photos showing the watch in its natural habitat including, inexplicably, at a party with Christopher Reeve.
