Man Is Surprised By How Much His Watch Is Worth

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

But it nevertheless was a good investment. The watch seemed so precious he hardly ever wore it. And when he brought it to the TV show "Antiques Roadshow" and experts said it's worth up to $700,000 now, the moment that he was told, the man threw himself down on the ground.
