Man discovers value of time while at 'Antiques Roadshow' in West Fargo
There are always plenty of surprises on "Antiques Roadshow," and that includes an episode that ran Monday shot in West Fargo.
A man identified only as David brought a Rolex watch he bought for about $350 when he was in the Air Force in 1974. Then he tucked it away in a safety deposit box.
The appraiser on the show told him it was similar to one once worn by Paul Newman that auctions for $200,000.
But, because it had the tiny word "Oyster" inscribed on the face, it could sell for $400,000.
Add the fact that the watch was in pristine condition it could fetch up to $700,000.
