David, who purchased the Rolex in 1974 for $345, fell to the floor after learning its value
It was David’s lucky day when he brought his old Rolex to be featured on Antiques Roadshow, the long-running television show where experts assess antiques, stashed treasures or heirlooms brought in by the public and estimate a value, as the US version of the show made its stop in West Fargo, North Dakota.
When he was told that the watch he purchased in 1974 for a few hundred dollars was worth $400,000, David, whose last name was not shared, was floored. Literally. He instantly swooned backwards onto the ground.
