Its got to be kind of hard to remain cool when the Antiques Road Show appraiser tells you your watch is worth WAY more than you ever thought.

The Rolex the guest brought in was one he had gotten decades ago while in the Air Force.   Informed that this was no ordinary Rolex, lit was a lot like a model once worn by Paul Newman that auctions for $200,000.

The appraiser then noted the tiny word Oyster inscribed on the face of the watch that made the trinket 'extremely, extremely rare'  The kind of watch that sells for $400,000.

Upon hearing the news about his watch, the man toppled backward to the ground with enough force that his feet flew up in the air.

His Rolex watch was now worth between $500,00 and $700.000.

Not to Shabby.
