Is the story too good to be true? This Friday, June 21, at 10 a.m., Marie-Claude and Bruno Pallueau were among the first buyers of the lost parcel sale organized in a hotel in Bressuire (Deux-Sèvres). Their attention was focused on three of the many boxes presented in the lobby of the establishment.

A certificate of authenticity provided

The opening of the last of them was not without surprise: inside, a Rolex® watch, in a box bearing the mention of the famous brand. The model in question is similar to a Datejust 41 in steel and yellow gold. Theoretical value: €15,400, according to the manufacturer’s website. Positioned next to the luxury object, a certificate of authenticity suggests that the retired couple indeed had a lucky hand.
However, a doubt still remains before popping the champagne: Marie-Claude and Bruno Pallueau have planned, in the afternoon, to submit the watch to a watchmaker. The latter was unable to comment, directing the couple to a brand retailer to resolve any remaining doubts. The answer will arrive in the coming days.
