Rolex Steve McQueen Submariner

Once thought to be lost in a fire, Steve McQueen's Rolex Submariner has surfaced through his top stuntman, the late Loren Janes, who was gifted the watch in the mid-to-late '70s. It is also the only known Rolex to feature an engraving of his name on the caseback, which features the message: "Loren, The Best Damn Stuntman In The World, Steve." The watch will be sold with a letter signed by Janes to confirm its provenance and photos from Rolex will be supplied that document its restoration. It will also include an additional Rolex Submariner glossy/gilt dial and the matching hand set. 

The watch will be available for auction this October at Phillips New York Watch auction.

$300,000-$600,000, phillips.com
