‘So much for an actor, that too such a sexy one’, you might wanna say! No wonder Orlando Bloom’s Rolex watches are getting all the attention they need even before they go on auction on June 11. We are referring to the three timepieces that come from the actor’s personal collection to be a part of Antiquorum’s Important Collectors’ Wristwatches auction in New York.
We have taken a liking for the rare 1973 Explorer II Steve McQueen watch, which is treasured by all Rolex aficionados. Bloom wore this one estimated to be at a price between $10,000 and $15,000 with a leather cuff bracelet. But we will not be surprised if it goes away at even a better price.
Then, let’s not forget the black PVD-coated steel Milagauss anti-magnetic chronometer that has a manufacturing of 2008. This one too is estimated at $10,000-$15,000. But if you want something cheaper, then you can easily settle for the 1969 Explorer for $3,000-$4,000. Then there is the autographed copy of the auction catalog by none other than Bloom himself that goes with each of the three watches. Bloom is donating a portion of the money to UNICEF.
