A new vintage watch has arrived in the UK, with a buyer saying the brand is “just fantastic” and the “greatest thing ever”.
A British designer named Adam Haggarty said the watch was worth $400,000 after bidding on eBay.
Haggarty bought the watch for $400k, and posted a video of himself on the watch to show his excitement.
He told the BBC: “It’s been a dream for a long time and I couldn’t be happier.”
The watch was originally designed by a German designer, who made the original, and is now owned by a British collector.
The watch has an engraved hour-marker that looks like a rose.
Haggart said the hour mark is a “huge tribute” to his father, who died when he was just 10 years old.
“It’s a beautiful piece and has a lovely, subtle colour,” Haggys said.
The buyer said he bought the timepiece to keep the family business alive and said the owner was very “tough on the watches”.
“I just want to keep this business alive for the people who need it,” the buyer said.
