http://gty.im/528529724 Now anytime I hear the word "Rolex", I know that means big money! Well, can you believe the high-end jewelry company just sold a new Rolex that is the mother of all Rolexes!?
It's the Rolex Daytona and it used to belong to actor Paul Newman and this baby just went for $17.8 million to the highest bidder. His wife, at the time Joanne Woodward actually gave it to Newman in the late 1960s. Demand and sales of that particular style watch skyrocketed and today it's a much sought-after collection.
Whew! That's a little to steep for my blood!
Wow! Paul Newman’s #RolexDaytona just sold at auction for .... $17,752,500.
That is not a misprint. pic.twitter.com/gJo3FmxZxA
