In 2004 an explorer buried a watch in a plastic box at the geographical North Pole. The box was found three years later by an ll-year-old boy walking on the beach in Finland. The watch still worked.

I'll ask the question everyone wants to know. What kind of watch was it?

Here are a few more details.

[The watch] had been buried by Jørgen Amundsen during a trek to the North Pole in 2004. He produced 250 copies of a watch that he designed to withstand extreme conditions in the Arctic, and buried one in memory of his ancestor, Roald Amundsen, the Norwegian polar explorer.

The remaining 249 watches have been put up for sale for an average of 70,000 kroner (£6,400), but the explorer has said that Niels could keep the watch that was brought to him by the polar ice.
