That kind of a piece would fetch upwards of $500,000-$700,000 at an auction, considering David still had the boxes it was packaged in, the blank warranty card and paperwork (which are themselves worth a hefty sum for being blank), the original brochure and more.
With that kind of money, he could afford, like, four seconds of a Super Bowl ad.
The $400,000 estimation wasn’t even meant for a watch in the superb condition that David’s was.
Peter Planes wasn’t even done, though.
