Girls Remember, Dad’s Watch, Do N’t Mess With It

In fact, when I posted the last article, I actually received the news from Rich Art-the famous Rolex GMT of Oscar filmmaker Marlon Brando was about to be auctioned. However, I have suffered from the fact that I have already published the article and do not want to update it on the weekend, so I have to put it today. When I saw this news, I immediately remembered an article I wrote last year about why celebrities like to wear their own Rolex watches into the crew, at the time I mentioned this watch-GMT without a bezel. This watch has always been thought to have disappeared (considered to be one of the 12 most famous disappearing watches), but did not expect to suddenly reappear. In the past few years, Fulisi has enjoyed a lot of popularity in watch auctions. The famous movie star Paul Newman and Rolex, the last emperor of Vietnam, have earned enough attention. The former also broke the auction record at the time. So what’s the story of Marlon Brando’s private collection? Many times, stories can even determine value. This watch will appear on December 10, 2019-a watch auction called ‘GAME CHANGERS’ in New York. Riches and Bacs & Russo’s definition of this auction is also more interesting-some of the collections choose timepieces owned by important people in different fields who are considered ‘changers.’ Speaking of Marlon Brando, everyone will remember his classic role in The Godfather. And this Rolex GMT-Master model 1675 was worn by him in the movie ‘Modern Apocalypse’ released in 1979. He played Colonel Walter E. Kurtz and wore the watch in the movie. What is more interesting is that this is a GMT watch without an outer ring, which is also unique. This watch is a Rolex GMT-Master model 1675 made in 1972. Marlon Brando told his daughter Petra that during the filming of ‘Modern Apocalypse’ in the Philippines, the crew asked him not to wear a watch in order to avoid being taken into focus by the watch. But Marlon Brando replied: ‘If the audience sees this watch instead of my acting skills, then I am not a good actor.’ In the end, the crew agreed to let him continue shooting with the watch, but he deliberately turned GMT’s outer ring was taken away. But in the movie, you only saw the surface of the watch, and this auction is the first exposure of the case back-you can see the ‘M. Brando’ signature carved by Marlon Brando. In fact, this is the first time that this watch was made public and sold after it was collected by Marlon Brando in the 1970s. In fact, this watch was given to his daughter Petra Brando in 1995. Petra Brando graduated from Brown University in 1994. In 1995, 20 years after the shooting of Modern Apocalypse, Marlon Brando gave the watch to Petra who was about to enter the University of Southern California to continue studying law. Daughter, said: ‘This Rolex GMT-Master is like a tank, I hope you can do whatever you want and continue. I hope this watch can always remind you that I am proud of you. ‘In 2003, Petra gave the watch to her husband Russel Fischer on their wedding night. Russel has since treasured it and has never worn it. Marlon Brando’s photo with her daughter-in-law in May 1998 is the 40th anniversary of the launch of Modern Apocalypse. This watch was naturally taken out by Petra Brando and her husband Russel Fischer. Before that, no one knew what it was. Where. According to Frieze, this watch is well-preserved, retaining the chamfers, curves and sharp edges of Rolex’s factory 50 years ago. The glowing hour markers and hands are even and beautiful in beige tones, and come with the original dial, hands, case, crystal and crown. Some of the proceeds from the auction of this watch will be donated to the charity foundations of Petra and Russel, which will provide donations for abused, poor and disabled children. Many people will pay attention to what price this watch will eventually sell, but in fact it doesn’t seem to matter now. It records the history being reproduced and the story behind it. I just said that the story’s wonderfulness obviously affects the auction price of the watch, that is, how much the buyer is willing to pay for the idea. Everyone will naturally remember that Paul Newman’s 6239PN Daytona sold a high price of 118 million yuan (actually because of this, so that the daughter-in-law of Marlon Brando realized the value of their watch, should not Keep it in the drawer), refresh the single-table auction record. And the warm-up of Filix in June of that year was absolutely indispensable (‘He handed a prospective son-in-law to a Rolex. I didn’t expect that it is worth ten million today. Paul Newman Daytona really appeared. Will the most expensive Rolex be it?’ 》). I remember readers at the time asked me if the price was worthy. Even for rich people, 118 million is not as simple as a number. There are various factors behind it that make him willing to spend a lot of money. What is more interesting is that whether it is Paul Newman Daytona or Marlon Brando’s GMT, we have all seen a strong old man. Paul Newman then gave the watch to the prospective son-in-law, but the two young people still parted ways (the person and the watch were not kept). Fortunately, this GMT was jointly owned by Petra Brando and her husband Russel Fischer. result. I just want to remind the girls again that dad’s watch should never be given away!
