We’ll not know for sure unless we find out who purchased the watch but I would tend to think this is not the case.

 By: Jay (Eire) : December 12th, 2020-15:41
He/she, or perhaps they (dealers have been known to split the “bet”), did for sure buy something which transcends the object itself but I would think it’s far more than just “movie memorabilia”. All said, I do defer to you and your knowledge of the brand ...

With all the craziness in the watch auctions this year, I'm very surprised Sly's Panerai sold for that amount, especially with the legit "provenance" attached to it. I've seen "rumored" watches with false provenance going for crazy final hammer prices. Wa...
