(Newser) – James Bond's wristwatch played a starring role alongside Sean Connery in the 1965 film Thunderball, but after the movie, it went MIA. Now it has finally made a reappearance—after a buyer found it at a British equivalent of a flea market, Sky News reports. The anonymous buyer paid some $38 for it two years ago, the Telegraph notes; now Christie's is set to auction it off, and it's expected to bring in up to $91,000. The Breitling Top Time watch—the only one used for the film—has a Geiger counter, allowing Bond to pick up on nuclear radiation.

They ought to release a version of it as a gift for Xmas. And by now, you really can fit a mini radiation detector in a watch.
