We knew they had visual value, but now the blue swim trunks famously worn by Daniel Craig as James Bond in "Casino Royale" boast a hefty monetary value as well.

At a James Bond charity auction in London on Friday, the trunks sold for nearly $72,000, according to the BBC.

Dame Judi Dench, a Bond screen staple (she will appear alongside Daniel as his boss, M, in the upcoming "Skyfall"), was on hand to introduce the sexy swimwear.

"All I'm going to tell you is they're unwashed," she joked.

Former Bond star Sir Roger Moore was also on hand for the auction, which celebrated the Bond franchise's 50th anniversary, while raising money for charities including Unicef UK and Childline.

"Skyfall," starring Daniel, Dame Judi, Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem, hits theaters on November 9.
