Yowza, like Art said, 33k is unbelievable actually, but 31 million?!!
Have never heard of such a thing, and I guess it is a new record.

Really is crazy Forza !

But it's still fun to find out about nevertheless. THX !!!

All that money for stainless steel. So when they make them out of titanium, silver, gold or platinum, which they can. This guy will be weeping.
The Paul Newman link interests me. The pic they have of the watch that was sold at auction shows a white dial with black subdials. But they also posted a picture of Paul Newman wearing the watch circa 1990's with a black dial, white subdials and a different bracelet.
Anyway, there was also a lot of other very nice pieces that sold there. Particularly that La Montre Hermes Moonphase. What a great build...
