Relive James Bond's adventures in Spectre with pieces of memorabilia up for auction with Christie's next month. Buro 24/7 Middle East has the details...

The ultimate Spectre keepsakes will go under the hammer next month in a charity auction, which will be held by Christie's, featuring memorabilia from the 24th film in the James Bond franchise. 

David Linley, Honorary Chairman of Christie's EMERI discusses the auction saying: "As a life-long James Bond fan it gives me great pleasure for Christie's to be part of this James Bond Spectre charity auction, celebrating the 24th film in the franchise. All proceeds of the auction will benefit Médecins Sans Frontières and other charitable organisations."

The main draw for the Spectre auction will be an Aston Martin DB10, a car made specially for the film and features a signed plaque by Daniel Craig. The British automotive masterpiece is expected to fetch an estimated Dhs5.3-Dhs8 million. Other top lots include an OMEGA Seamaster 300 (Dhs80,000-Dhs105,000), the laptop used by Q (Dhs21000-Dhs32,000), as well as Tom Ford sunglasses and cufflinks (Dhs21000-Dhs32,000 and Dhs16,000-Dhs26,000 respectively), all of which made appearances in the film.
