Today’s classic “one-in-a-million” news story hails from Phoenix, Arizona, where Zach Norris has sold a timepiece he purchased from Goodwill for $35,000 USD. Walking in the secondhand store with the intent of purchasing a push-pull golf cart, Norris found himself rummaging through a basket filled with Fossil watches and dead batteries. He eventually came across a watch with a dial that reads, “LeCoultre Deep Sea Alarm,” priced for a mere $5.99. An avid watch collector himself, Norris was familiar with the decorated Jaeger-LeCoultre brand, and had a hunch that the timepiece was actually worth an exponential amount more. Norris purchased the watch and went on to consult an authorized Jaeger-Lecoultre retailer representative, who confirmed that the watch was indeed a rare 1959 LeCoultre Deep Sea Alarm piece. He eventually sold the Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Chronograph to Eric Ku, a familiar face after starring in an episode of “Talking Watches,” for a cool 35 grand.
