Someone is selling "Nidge's watch" on the internet

What time is it? Crime time.

IN A CASE of art imitating life that felt kind of like life imitating art, a watch purportedly worn by Nidge in RTÉ’s Love/Hate has appeared on Adverts.ie.

The ad is reminiscent of the Criminal Assets Bureau’s sale of a ladies Rolex watch earlier this year.

However, while that sale starting the bidding at €6,000, Nidge’s mate is only looking for €450.

The ad claims that the watch was worn by Tom Vaughan-Lawlor during shooting the latest series of the crime drama and was “acquired due to connections within RTE Studios”.

RTÉ have not responded to an enquiry a to whether this is legit or just somebody chancing their arm.

But the seller says in the comments:

“No proof as such but I wouldn’t lie putting it up if it wasn’t you can either trust my word or not it’s totally up to yourselves.”
