    The BBC News reports that the James Bond actor donated the watch while promoting his latest 007 film, Quantum of Solace on the Friday Night with Jonathan Ross show in late October.

    After eyeing Craig’s watch during the interview, Ross said: ‘Give me that watch.’

    ‘What do you want me to do?’ Craig said.

    ‘Give me that watch you got there,’ Ross said.

    ‘You want this watch, it’s yours,’ the actor replied.

    Ross, who then tried to return the favour to Craig by offering him a Ricky Gervais coaster, suggested he’d auction the watch for charity.

    Money raised from the sale, which starts this upcoming Monday, 10 November on eBay, will benefit BBC’s annual fundraiser Children In Need.

    A watch with the same specifications is worth around £15,000, but the BBC said the actor’s is ‘invaluable as it has been worn by Daniel and came directly off his wrist’.
