A host of memorabilia from various James Bond films including the Aston Martin DB5 and Omega watch from No Time to Die have sold at auction for a staggering amount.

Offered by Christie’s in part one of its Sixty Years of James Bond sale, the 25 lots on offer brought in a total of $6.8 million (£6.1 million) which all went to charity.

The collectible that brought in the craziest amount of money had to be the watch worn by Daniel Craig in the series’ latest installment.

An Omega Seamaster 300 Series 007 Edition, it was initially valued at just $16-22k (£15-20k) but actually sold for a staggering $251,580 (£226,800).

Designed in collaboration with Craig for his final James Bond film, the titanium watch came with a certificate signed by him.

Another Omega also worn by him in the film sold for a huge amount as well.

This time a blue-dialled Seamaster Aqua Terra, it brought in $132,780 (£119,700), again, well over its estimate which was the same.

However, the lot that brought the most money by a long shot was the Aston Martin DB5 that also featured in No Time to Die.

While estimates had it sitting at $1.7 – $2.2 million (£1.5-2.0 million), it actually sold for $3,241,230 (£2,922,000).


It’s worth noting that this isn’t even a real DB5, but instead a replica.

The body of a DB5 was draped over a space-frame chassis with rallycross suspension to allow it to perform the stunts seen in the film.

The other surprise sale was from an older Bond flick, 1981’s Octopussy.

A Swarovski crystal-mounted ‘prop egg’ that featured in the film was only slated to bring in $6.6-11k (£6-10k).

However, the oddity actually sold for a truly staggering $363,390 (£327,600).

A few bargains did manage to slip through amongst these big ticket items.

Several of the other cars that featured in No Time to Die including Land Rover Defenders, a Range Rover Sport SVR, and a Jaguar XF stunt car all sold for less than their valuations.
