Geneva - A sale of luxury watches, including a Rolex worn by Roger Moore as James Bond, exceeded expectations to net 21.2m in Geneva on Monday, Christie's said.

The highlight of the nine-hour auction was the sale of a pink gold wristwatch manufactured by Swiss watchmaker Patek Philippe in 1968, which fetched 2 million francs, more than double its pre-auction estimate worth.

Another high point was the sale of a Rolex worn by actor Roger Moore as the spy character James Bond in the film Live and Let Die for 219 000 francs.
