That watch is questionable. It's "unworn", and the only thing linking it to McQueen is a receipt of the watch sold brand new to the production company. Someone is taking a HUGE gamble.

The other watch that's certified to be the watch worn by McQueen in Lemans sold a few years ago for ~200k if I remember right.

So either this was an unused watch for the production making the watch worth a lot less, or McQueen wore more than 1 blue Monaco 1133b during production and the watch is worth 800k.

Forgetting about the price tag, that is one sweet watch

Gorgeous watch, but damn 800k is way too expensive.

Wow. You'd think even if blowing 800K on a watch was no big deal that you'd want it to be verified to protect your investment! :eek:

You can get a Heuer 1133b with the later Calibre 12 movement that's not associated with McQueen for about $8-12k depending on condition. A full on service of the movement will set you back another $1k or so. Add another $5k if it's a "first gen" Calibre 11 movement. So ya, the McQueen name adds a LOT to the value.

Oddly enough, the re-editions are worth more, unworn ones selling for around $13-15k range when they show up on the market. Helps that only 1000 were made.
