21 January, 2016

The online-only sale will offer 14 of the 24 lots and be open for bidding from Tuesday 16 to Tuesday 23 February, with the invitation-only live auction being held on Thursday 18 February at Christie’s in London. Though the live auction is invitation-only, Internet and telephone bids will be open to anyone who wishes to take part in the sale.

All proceeds to benefit Médécins Sans Frontieres, other charitable organisations and the United Nations Mine Action Service.

The live auction on 18 February is led by an Aston Martin DB10, one of the series of DB10s designed and engineered by Aston Martin exclusively for James Bond, SPECTRE, illustrated above. Most of the DB10s were modified for use in the filming of SPECTRE, but two of those produced were kept back as show cars, for display purposes only, and this is one of them. The car is expected to realise between £1,000,000 and £1,500,000 and is to date the only DB10 to be released for public sale by Aston Martin and EON Productions. This is the only car that includes a special plaque signed by Daniel Craig and was displayed at the world premiere of SPECTRE at the Royal Albert Hall, London. Aston Martin has been associated with the James Bond franchise for over 50 years, with the DB10 model featuring in the latest Bond film, Spectre. 

Additional highlights of the live sale include the Omega Seamaster 300 watch that was worn by Daniel Craig as James Bond, estimated at £15,000-20,000, while our online-only sale is to feature the laptop used by actor Ben Whishshaw as Q, estimated at £4,000-6,000, and a pair of Tom Ford Snowdon sunglasses, worn by Daniel Craig as James Bond, estimated at £4,000-6,000.
