A Phoenix man said the $6 watch he bought at a Goodwill thrift ship turned out be a rare 1959 timepiece that he was able to sell for $35,000.
Zach Norris said he was looking for a pull cart for his golf bag at the Goodwill store on 43rd Avenue in Phoenix when he recognized a $5.99 watch as a rare 1959 Jaeger-LeCoultre diving watch.
"Sometimes they just miss it, they don't know, It's not a very fancy-looking piece. You have to know what it is." He said.
He said only about 900 of the watches were produced.
Norris said he was able to sell the watch for $35,000 on website hodnikee.com and the buyer even threw in a $4,000 Mega Speed Master watch.
Norris said some of the money will be donated back to Goodwill, and he and his fiancée have plans for the rest.
"We are planning a wedding," he said. "We've been planning a wedding for a while, but now that we have the extra funds we're going to go ahead and start taking care of everything. We're excited."
