Forty watches from Hollywood legend Robin Williams’ collection up for auction

Forty wristwatches from the collection of the late Robin Williams are being sold at Sotheby’s New York next month along with movie props, toys, furniture and art.

The auction includes a gold-plated Hamilton watch that the actor wore during Dead Poet’s Society, arguably his most popular role.

“We’re incredibly excited about the watch that Robin Williams wore during Dead Poets Society,” Sotheby’s vice chairman Nina del Rio said at a public exhibition ahead of the sale.

Other watches are more mainstream including pieces from Cartier, Oris, Franck Muller and Bulgari.

The auction, which is titled Creating a Stage: The Collection of Marsha and Robin Williams, has 300 lots and is expected to raise around $3 million.

A portion of the sales will go to charities supported by the couple including Human Rights Watch and the Wounded Warrior Project.
