Christie’s finished up 2015 with two great watch auctions, one dedicated to the “Omega Speedmaster” and another for “Rare Watches & Important Discoveries”. This time around they’re gathering up itemized artifacts leftover from the “James Bond Spectre” movie-set, which was released to theaters worldwide on the 6th of November 2015. Christie’s auction begins on the 16th and closes on the 23rd of February 2016.
The auction will include various watches worn by actors portraying characters from Ian Fleming’s “James Bond” universe. Such as: James Bond’s boss, better known as M, played by the actor Ralph Fiennes in Spectre 007, who wore a “Longiness 35mm ‘Conquest Heritage’ 18k rose gold”, estimated to sell between $7,260.00 to $10,164.00 USD.
And obviously a Daniel Craig worn watch, the actor who interpreted James Bond for the fourth time on the big screen. Although this timepiece may appear as one of the 7.007 pieces of the “Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre LDT ED”, in fact it is one of eight prototypes Omega manufactured for the movie, estimated to sell between $21,780.00 to $29,040.00 USD.

A second auction that will also be accessible online (16 to 23 of February) will be featuring the, “Rado D-Star Automatic Chronograph” worn by Dave Bautista, who interpreted one of the villains off the Spectre movie, named: Hinx, estimated to sell between $5,769.00 to $8,654.00 USD. And one of the 7.007 of the “Seamaster 300 Spectre LDT ED” will be up for auction, with the special characteristic of having been gifted to actor Jesper Christensen, who played “Mr. White”, by the producers of Spectre: Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
Other items up for auction include: a Blu-ray edition of Spectre signed by actor Daniel Craig; the final script for Spectre signed by director Sam Mendes; the sheet music for “Writing’s On The Wall” signed by the singer Sam Smith; a gold ring worn by actor Christoph Waltz and even the “Day of the Dead” costume or a two-piece suit (made by Tom Ford) worn by Daniel Craig in various scenes of the movie.
But, the biggest allure may not even come in the form of a watch for this auction. Up for bid will be one of the three remaining “Aston Martin DB10” that were used by James Bond in Spectre. This vehicle was specifically designed for 007’s use, with a 4.7-liter V8 engine, estimated to sell between $1,443,468.00 to $2,164,091.00 USD. Though its fair warning to be aware this car hasn’t been certified or approved for use on public roads.
