Time IS Money...Literally

Paul Newman’s Rolex — with a telling message from his wife — fetches record $17.8 million

After spending years out of the spotlight, the watch landed at Phillips, the auction house, earlier this year.

Anticipation grew, as experts speculated it would sell for around $1 million, a high asking price for any watch,

even one associated with “Cool Hand Luke.”


On Thursday, it sold for$17,752,500 after a 12-minute bidding war.

That’s the world record for the most expensive watch ever sold at an auction, according to Phillips.

A portion of the proceeds went to the Nell Newman Foundation.

My work watch broke about 5 years ago and I haven't worn a watch since...

With so many digital devices theses days (mobile, cell phone) showing accurate time

The question is do we really need a "proper watch?" or is it just accessory item when we dress up...

I can only wear wind up watches due to me flattening the battery in just a few short days. I haven't reguarly worn a watch for years although I do occasionally wear the one my mother gave me as a present for a pagan festival in December over 50 years ago. :uhhuh:

Don't give up .. it's just around the corner.
