    I think James Garner was at least as cool as Steve McQueen. I loved the Rockford Files when I as a kid and Grand Prix has the most incredible racing scenes ever filmed (in my admittedly amateur opinion).

    Nice watch, too.

    Rockford Files was compulsory family viewing in our household, Garner seemed such an effortlessly relaxed guy.
    I love that they personalised his watch for him.
    And am a little surprised the family is selling it.
    The estimated price us a joke.

    It was (or would have been) James Garner's birthday yesterday (born on the 7th of April 1928). Nice tie-in.

    I'm surprised Gigi, his daughter, is selling it but I assume she has many mementos of her father. Like others I was, and still am, a huge fan of the Rockford Files. I've posted a couple of times about James Garner:

    Fought in the Korean War too.

    Another Rockford Files fan here - I keep looking for Grand Prix online too as I've not seen it for years.

    Strange. Just been talking to my sister, who wants a Rockford Files ring tone for her front door bell. (Her new house has wood panelling in the hall).

    All she’d need then is a gold car.

    I can send you the theme tune as an mp3 file if you wish.

    That’s very good of you. We’re going to need a doorbell that can accommodate a ring tone first. Haha.
