October 5th is Global James Bond Day, marking the 50th anniversary of the series.To honour the legendary 007 character, Christie’s in London has organised global online and traditional live charity auctions.
50 Years of James Bond—The Auction began online on September 28 and will end on October 8th. The traditional live auction will take place this Friday at 8:30pm in South Kensington, and includes specialty items not available in the online auction.
The online auction bids are already exceeding Christie’s estimates, and proceeds will go toward benefiting a group of charities including UNICEF, Art Fund, ORBIS, and ChildLine.
We’ve already shown you the Omega Seamaster wristwatch and BMW Z8 Roadster from The World Is Not Enough that will be a part of the Bond auction, but there’s much more 007 memorabilia where that came from.
