    Read about this on Hodinkee.

    FWIW, Paul Newman's actual Paul Newman sold at auction on 2017 for $17 million, proceeds went to a charity.

    cool story.....

    a friend of mine got out of the service in '62, bought a Rolex GMT (Pepsi) for less than $300 brand new, it was appraised last year for 30k
