It’s Okay To Laugh At This Veteran Collapsing In Shock Because He Just Found Out His Watch Is Worth $700K

Today in hilarious falls that we absolutely cannot feel bad about, a military veteran learned the value of his old Rolex watch—and promptly hit the ground from the shock.

The unidentified Air Force veteran went on “Antiques Roadshow” to have his 1971 Rolex Oyster Cosmograph appraised—and discovered its current worth: $700,000.

He literally falls to the floor, legs up in the air and everything. It’s spectacular.

“You gotta be sh***ting me,” he says after getting back on his feet. “Unbelievable.”

He said he paid $347.97 for the watch in 1974 when he was stationed in Thailand. He thought a Rolex would be good for scuba diving, but once he received the watch he changed his mind.

“I looked at it and I said this is really too nice to take down into salty water.”

He put the watch in a safe deposit box for 40 years and only took it out two or three times to look at it. He also kept the original brochure, two receipts, the original box, outer box, and the original foil sticker on the watch.

The veteran brought the watch to Bonanzaville in West Fargo, North Dakota, where appraiser Peter Planes of Luxe Auctioneers in Palm Beach, Florida, told him that it was a rare piece. Planes explained that the watch is in demand from collectors because it’s similar to one Paul Newman wore in the 1969 movie “Winning” that became known as the Daytona Rolex.

“In this condition, I don’t think there’s a better one in the world,” Planes said.

Time to check your parents’ safety deposit boxes, friends!
