They're the spoils of a feast that's over forever: Bernard Madoff's stuff on a government auction block. Almost 200 items seized from the fallen financier's homes are being sold today in Manhattan, ranging from dishes, pens and stationery to decoy ducks, furs and a Rolex dubbed the "prisoner watch."

The Swiss chronograph watch was modeled on those made for World War II Allied airmen imprisoned in Germany, who used them to time prison patrols and plan a possible escape.

Madoff's yachts will hit the block next, sold in Florida by an auctioneer billing itself as "The World's Largest Boat and Yacht Liquidation Company."
