PHOENIX, Ariz. (PIX11) — A watch bought for just $5.99 at a Goodwill turned out to be worth tens of thousands of dollars.

Zach Norris bought the watch at a Phoenix, Arizona Goodwill and decided to research the piece, which turned out to be a Jaeger-LeCoultre Deep Sea Alarm, according to Fox 10. Norris contacted watch specialist Eric Ku, who confirmed the watch was worth much more than thrift store prices.

Norris ended up selling the watch to Ku for an astounding $35,000.

Ku told the station the watch was made in 1959, and about 1000 of its kind were made by the manufacturer.

The watch, which can used for diving, also features an alarm function.
