    I really doubt there is any recession going on, and so will you after you read this. Steve McQueen’ s classic 1967 Rolex Submariner (below) sold for $234,000 – 20 times its estimate – at Antiquorum’s Important Collectors’ Wristwatches auction in New York Friday, setting a new world record for its reference.

    In addition to this ‘The Hunter’ actor’s 1929 Scott Super Squirrel motorcycle, painted by Von Dutch, fetched an astounding $ 276,000 – double its estimate. And the Heuer Monaco watch that the actor wore in the 1971 racing film Le Mans sold for a world record $87,600.

    “Today’s auction is clear confirmation that in the current market, collectors are looking for horological rarities with noteworthy provenance, such as Steve McQueen’s Rolex and Heuer,” notes Evan Zimmermann, President & CEO of Antiquorum. Seems the actor is really lucky for the sellers.
