Though it isn’t the priciest Rolex to hit the auction block, this 1964 Submariner 5513 has an unmatchable pedigree. Previously owned by legendary actor Steve McQueen, the timepiece was given to his close friend and favorite stuntman, Loren Janes in the ’70s, commemorated with an inscription on the back of the case that reads: “TO LOREN, THE BEST DAMN STUNTMAN IN THE WORLD. STEVE.” This engraving is the only one of its kind; McQueen’s name has never appeared on any other watch. Otherwise, the watch boasts a fresh, era-appropriate restoration, completed by Rolex after the watch was thought to have destroyed by a freak fire in 2016.

Expect the watch to hit the Phillips auction block on October 25, with estimates reaching $300,000 USD to $600,000 USD. Check out Phillips’s website for more information on the unique piece. Recently, Rolex unveiled a “Rainbow” iteration of its Daytona watch.
