The first 10 lots of the Spectre auction were offered yesterday, and altogether, they brought almost $4 million – which is great news since all the proceeds went to charity. Our eyes were obviously set on the Prototype Seamaster worn by Daniel Craig, and it blew well past the initial estimate of ?15,000 – ?20,000 ($21,375-$28,500) reaching over $130,000. And I am sure that you are also wondering who took home his Aston DB10. Well, I fear I can’t answer that, but the battle for this incredible car was fierce, and stopped near the $3.5 million mark, again a solid multiple over the estimates. And the Spectre auction is not finished yet, as some 14 additional lots from the movie are still available for online bidding.
Prototype Omega Seamaster 300 Worn By Daniel Craig – Sold For $132,000
As we mentioned in our previous article here, this Seamaster 300 is one step beyond the Spectre Limited edition, as it is actually one of the eight prototypes that Daniel Craig wore during the filming of Spectre, from the Austrian Alps to the Moroccan desert. Even better, this Omega is the prototype Number 1; all these explains the frenzy around this lot, which eventually reached $132,000. The Longines Heritage from M did very well too, reaching close to $30,000.
One And Only Aston Martin DB10 – Sold For $3.5 Million
This DB10 was announced as the only one to ever be offered for sale (James Bond had previously smashed seven of the 10 DB10s that Aston Martin hand-built for the set. You can imagine the intense competition to acquire this special car. The starting estimate was ?1,000,000 – ?1,500,00 ($1,425,000 – $2,137,500) but the car eventually hammered for $3,476,466 -, an impressive amount for a car that you would not be allowed to use on public roads. Yet, its curves trump any underlying rationale – this DB10 is seriously endearing!
