$17 Million for a watch?

A famous Rolex watch once owned by actor Paul Newman was just auctioned off, and someone bought it for $17.8 million … making it the most expensive wristwatch ever sold at auction.

To be clear … This is not the most expensive watch ever sold. Just the most expensive WRIST-watch. A 1933 pocket watch holds the record for the most expensive watch ever sold – $24.4 million.

Everyone used to wear watches, but doesn’t it seem like they are disappearing?  Most people carry their phones and use them to tell the time instead of relying on a watch.  And most smart phones adjust time automatically.  We always had to set our watches.  Speaking of which, this weekend (11/5/17) we have to move our clocks back one hour.  Just remember “Spring Forward, Fall Back”.  Enjoy that extra hour.
