Veteran collapses after discovering his $350 Rolex is worth over $700,000!
We’d be willing to bet that more than a few blokes and blokettes out there in the comments section have some sort of collectible they hope will one day earn them some serious coin. It might be a bloody Funko Pop, it might be a rare Pink Floyd LP. Whatever it is, you’re probably just waiting for Antiques Roadshow to roll around and tell you it’s worth a mint. When that happens, you might need somewhere to sit. If you wanna know why, just check out this US veteran’s reaction to an epic reveal…
As of present time, the vet in this one is currently unidentified – and that might be a good thing – after all, he’s just found out that he could be some $700,000 US dollarydoos better off thanks to his Rolex. Yeah, nah, no s**t. The watch he bought for $350 bucks is worth serious f**ken coin now.
“I was in Thailand from 1973 – 75, and while I was there…I noticed that most of the pilots that were flying those aircraft wore Rolex watches and I was always intrigued by them. Later, when I was transferred to another base, I did some scuba diving. I knew the Rolex was good for scuba diving, and I found this watch where I could afford it. Then I looked at it and never wore it. I realised this one was too nice to take down into salty water.”
As you’ll know when you watch the video, that was a smart f**ken choice. Turns out that old mate’s watch is a proper collector’s item because Paul Newman had one that was sorta similar. On top of that, the former soldier’s got all the packaging, receipts and brochures. If he’d been silly enough to wear it, he’d be about $400,000 US dollarydoos richer.
That alone sends him to the deck faster than bloody Neymar. Deadset, he just f**ken collapses. We won’t spoil the rest of the video for you, but his watch may be the best in the world, and could fetch him $700,000. F**ken hell!
“In this condition, I don’t think there’s a better one in the world,” the appraiser reckons. “I can’t thank you enough for bringing me one of the greatest watches to ever see on Antiques Roadshow and thank you very much for your service. You can’t wear it, though.”
Final thought: Look, there’s a really simple message here. You can collect whatever you want, but if a celebrity has shown off with something similar in a movie, keep the bloody packaging and receipts – and never use it! One day, it might be worth enough to knock you off your feet!
