    Amusingly, those sextant used in the movie will become valuable, but only if there is some sort of document detailing the provenance!  Imagine, Robert Redford himself touched this sextant.  Strangely, it will actually be more valuable than a NIB sextant.

    Ken,

    During the movie, as soon as I saw that sealed cardboard shipping box of a size which I knew could hold a sextant, I made a little mental note to look for the Celestaire logo. No such luck. But when the wooden case emerged from the shipping box, there was no doubt what it was. :)

    I have looked in the usual places and also some unusual and illegal places, but I have not found any clip from the movie showing the sextant. But there's evidence that there are copies floating about, so I expect I should be able to get a few screen caps of those scenes soon.

    Here's an entertaining comparison of "Gravity" and "All Is Lost":
