A student can never be late for class again after scooping a brand-new £14,000 Rolex in luxury lifestyle competition.
Carl Liebthal, 23, from Catford, has won a Rolex Cosmograph Daytona worth a cool five figures in the online competition – and the winning ticket cost him just 70p.
The construction student was working from home when BOTB presenter Christian Williams video-called to tell him the good news.
“I can’t believe it,” he said. “I’ve only been playing BOTB a few months, I never expected to win!”
Carl, who is studying to become a quantity surveyor, said owning a Rolex was “every man’s dream”.
“I’ve always wanted to own a Rolex, surely every man has, they’re a classic!
“I wear an Armani watch at the moment so this is definitely an upgrade – I just can’t believe it.”
Since being founded in 1999 by William Hindmarch, BOTB has given away more than £34m worth of prizes, including supercars, cash and holidays.
The company, listed on the stock market, hands over the keys to two stunning cars each week as well as a ‘lifestyle’ prize. Recent winners have bagged a quad bike, a holiday to the Arctic and £15,000 in cash.
BOTB’s Christian Williams, who surprises the winners every week, said: “Carl’s not wrong when he says the Rolex is a dream watch and the Daytona is no exception. The Rolex is a timeless piece of jewellery and I’m super happy for Carl. Massive congratulations again!”
