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.
