Dig this scenario.
You’re a watch collector who plays a decent amount of golf in your spare time. When you do, you like walking — you know, the exercise and what not — but you’re tired of carrying your golf bag every time you play. So, you head over to the local Goodwill store to see if you can score a deal on a pull cart. Of course, you’ve got some time to kill, so you peruse the watch section for ha-ha’s.
While you’re doing that, you stumble across an incredibly rare watch in decent shape selling for a whopping six bucks.
Well, that’s precisely what happened to Arizona’s Zach Norris. While looking for a pull cart for his golf clubs, he found a 1959 Jaeger-LeCoultre diving watch for $5.99. Because he’s not a stupid person, he immediately bought it.
“I’ve found some stuff in the past that I have been really excited about and stoked, but this is one of those things you’re like, one day, one day it will happen, and it happened for me,” Norris told KTLA.
The watch ended up on hodinkee.com (a watch collector’s website) where a San Francisco collector saw it. He paid Norris $35,000 for the watch and threw in a $4,000 Mega Speedmaster Watch just incase the $35k wasn’t enough to convince Norris to part with his find.
With the money, Norris said he’s going to pay for a wedding he and his fiancee have been planning for sometime but never had the extra funds to commit.
No word on whether or not he actually got the pull cart, but I’m sure at this point, Norris can buy whatever new one he wants.
