Air Force Vet on Antiques Roadshow Learns His $345 Rolex Is Worth $700,000


Tuesday's episode of the PBS series Antiques Roadshow took place in Bonanzaville in West Fargo, North Dakota, where a former member of the United States Air Force presented a Rolex Daytona that he bought while stationed in Thailand in the mid-'70s for appraisal.

He paid $345 for the watch at the time, and when he found out from the appraiser that it was now worth $700,000, he literally collapsed to the ground. Thankfully, he never lost consciousness; rather, he was just overwhelmed with happiness, and gave Roadshow fanatics a moment they won't soon forget.
