I love it when stories like this show up! Thanks for sharing!

More importantly as its a one of a kind you would think the movie studio would have some accountability for it.
True, but that was the mid-60's we're talking about. The "collectables mentality" hadn't set in yet and the character "James Bond" had barely started to become a lucrative franchise. And as far as Pinewood Studios was concerned; along with set pieces and costumes it was just one of literally thousands of movie props in their art department's inventory. It wasn't even a working chronograph any longer...what value could it possibly have had?
Back in 1965 they could only dream that the Bond films would become the phenomenon that they have become.
