Wait, how much?

As of yesterday there is new most expensive wristwatch. Previous record was set almost one year ago by stainless steel (yes, I know, such low key metal) Patek Philippe ref. 1518 that was sold in Geneva for 11 million and 20k CHF.

The new record holder is watch owned by Paul Newman, called Paul Newman Rolex Daytona. It was sold for eye watering 15,5 million US dollars.

Bidding took 12 minutes and winning bid was done by telephone. I guess that means that we might never see this watch ever again, so enjoy the pictures while you can.
