James Bond's wristwatch, which played a starring role alongside Sean Connery in the 1965 movie 'Thunderball' but was apparently lost after the film's shooting, has finally made a reappearance.

According to Sky News, the watch has been found after a person purchased it at a British equivalent of a flea market, Radar Online reported.

The unidentified buyer paid around 38 pounds for it two years ago, a UK tabloid noted.

Now Christie’s, an international auction house, is all set to put it under the hammer and expects to bring in up to 91,000 pounds.

The Breitling Top Time watch, used in the film, has a Geiger counter that allowed the famous fictional spy to pick up on nuclear radiation.
