On Nov. 8 in Geneva, Phillips is selling the actual Rolex Submariner that Roger Moore wore as James Bond in 1973’s Live and Let Die. Yes, this watch touched 007's suave wrist.

I wonder if, since Moore signed the inside the case back, it would be worth taking out all the spinner mechanicals and replacing it with a real Subby movement; it would look amazing with those sharpened bezel "blades." For me, having it actually function as a watch would make it far more valuable... 8)
