These videos are always fun to find. Trending right now on Reddit is a clip from Antique Roadshow of a man discovering the true value of this Rolex GMT-Master, ref. 6542.He purchased the watch in 1960 on the advice of his Sergeant, paying $120 for the piece. To put that into context, his salary in the army at the time was just under $100 a month. He kept the watch in immaculate condition, instinctually holding on to the very things collectors covet–box, papers and the original bracelet. I won’t spoil the end of the video, but let’s just say he was more than shocked to discover its true value.
