"...the watch that started it all will sell at Phillips's first New York watch auction this October."
How many records will it break?

Oh man...

Upon the passing of Sam Shepard this past week a friend of mine had posted that he didn't know what "cool" was until he saw Shepard portray Chuck Yeager in The Right Stuff. I replied that I didn't know what cool was until I saw Paul Newman on screen.

I would pay an arm and a leg if I were able.

Yes I heard about Sam Shepard, another TV icon taken by the creator. There's Paul Newman and there's Paul Newman's Paul Newman! I doubt your arms and legs would be enough lol. Come October we may see a new record for the most expensive Rolex.
I did a double take... You posted the exact same pic as I did 2 months ago brother!

I think Newman's Daytona will crush the 6263 "Oyster Albino" that belonged to Clapton (even though only 4 of those exist), and will probably catch the Yellow Gold Newman Daytona "Legend" that sold for $3.7m. I find it hard to believe that it will match the 6062 gold "Bao Dai" though, but who knows.....

LOL you did too, must've slipped my mind. Was reminded again after watching the last Hodinkee live ep. We shall see won't we.
