I was just reading a piece about a watch John received from Yoko on his 40th birthday. The watch was a yellow gold Patek Philippe perpetual calendar chronograph reference 2499/100 and in 1989 a similar model was worth the equivalent in today's money of half a million dollars.

Eric Clapton had the same model too although a slightly different casing.
