    Description

    Peter Fonda's Prototype Gold Rolex Worn In "Easy Rider." While sitting on a beach in France and watching the tide come in shortly after filming his scenes for the anthology movie Spirits of the Dead (1968), Peter Fonda experienced a burst of creativity that resulted in the first draft Easy Rider being put on paper in less than three hours. It was his first screenplay, and Peter rewarded himself by purchasing this 18k gold prototype Rolex GMT Master watch with date feature. The watch is very briefly visible in the early, pre-credit scenes of the movie. (There was no way Peter was going to risk damaging the watch, naturally, so a different one was used for the scene where his character tosses it away.) The watch is in Excellent condition with a few mild scratches here and there, and is accompanied by an extra wristband that was purchased by Fonda at a later date. A fascinating item that comes with a great backstory.
