On February 18, Christie’s auction house in London will celebrate the Blu-Ray and DVD release of the 24th film in the James Bond series, “Spectre,” with a special charity auction featuring products from the vaults of EON Productions, in addition to donations from Bond star Daniel Craig, director Sam Mendes, and longtime Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
The main plot of the auction will be an Aston Martin DB10, one of the DB10s specially designed and engineered by Aston Martin for “Spectre.” While most of the DB10s were altered for filming, two were kept in their original state for display purposes—notably at the world premier at Royal Albert Hall—and this is one of those vehicles. Christie’s expects the DB10 to fetch somewhere between $1,425,000 and $2,140,000 as the only example released by Aston Martin for public sale.
Other items will include an Omega Seamaster 300 watch, Tom Ford “Snowdon” sunglasses, and Tom Ford “JB” cufflinks which were all worn by Craig as James Bond. There will also be a “Spectre” Blu-Ray signed by Daniel Craig.
While the live auction will be invite-only, internet and telephone bids will be available for anyone wishing to partake. Christie’s will also offer 14 of the 24 plots in an online-only sale, with bidding open Feb. 16-23. Proceeds of the sales will benefit Médecins sans Frontiéres (MSF), United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS), and other charities.
