Just days before Audrey Hepburn's postage stamp was selling for big money at an auction in Germany, Steve McQueen's rolex was selling for $234,000 at Antiquorum's summer auction in New York City.
The vintage Rolex, Ref. 5512, fetched a whopping $234,000 -- twenty times its estimated worth, and a world record for that reference.
Also for sale from the actor's possessions were his Scott Super Squirrel motorcycle, painted by Von Dutch, which sold for $276,000 (double its estimate), and the Heuer "Monaco" he wore in the 1971 racing film Le Mans, sold for a world record $87,600. Wow.
