    Shaken not stirred. Aka. Oh No!!! Not another Bond Watch Thread!!! (Pic. Heavy)

    Well a little downtime in the sales section gave me a few hours to throw something together.

    What is our fascination with this sociopath, misogynistic, alcoholic, emotionally dysfunctional, sickly charming, ruthless killing machine? He might be all these things but the films and the character exude style, taste and there is a little bit in all of us that wants to escape into the fantasy world in which he resides. One really has to question the effectiveness of a secret agent whose preference for alcoholic beverages is known to every bartender in every exotic location throughout the world.

    Anyway, lets re-visit the much written about Bond Watches. Along with Cars and women this is another area where the character displays great taste and style. However, the only thing he really chooses or seduces is the women, we know that Q (not ) chooses his cars and watches. So, Q is the man. The great thing for Bond, unlike us, is he gets them all for free.

    So here we go some but not all of the 007 watches. Hours of research watching and freeze framing went into this thread lol. Joking of course but now since this watch hobby (addiction) has overcome me I cannot watch a Bond film without my finger hovering over the pause button for those miniscule glimpses of 007 arm candy.

    Rolex 6538.



    There has been some debate over the years regarding what Rolex Sean Connery wears and the provenance of it. However due to the advent of DVD and Blue Ray it is now fairly obvious. As is tired telling people the Connery sub is a 6538 big crown, with a silver triangle and a 2 line metres first gilt dial. The strap was generally considered to be an admiralty grey nato. We now know it was a black red and green undersized RAF strap. It was also worn on a Black leather strap in Dr. No. and From Russia with love. The RAF strap appeared in Goldfinger. Again, in Thunderball the 6538 tells the time while the Breitling Top Time supplies the Geiger counter.

    My version is the Helenarou Connery Submariner. It is a work of art in my biased opinion.

    Rolex 5513



    An early appearance of the 5513 is displayed by George Lazenby in “On her Majesty’s secret service”. It was more prominently worn by Roger Moore in “Live and Let Die” and “Diamonds are forever”. It had the buzzsaw bezel in “Live and Let Die” and a handy magnet for disrobing young ladies. Apart from the quirky bezel it has a feet first 2 line dial.

    The weird thing is when I was searching for images the photos of my watch and rivet bracelets are all over the internet lol so here it is my built “Live and Let Die”.






    Seiko Something



    Roger Moore wore a Seiko in Octopussy, indeed he wore many as 007. The great members at RWI discovered a very close approximation to this the Casio WorldTime or to the watch freaks (I do not include myself in that blanket statement) The Casio Royale. Nice find .

      Rolex 16610LN



      Timothy Dalton’s weapon of choice in “Licence to Kill” was the infamous 5 digit. You must excuse my poetic licence here as I do not have an aluminium LN, so I improvised a bit lol. Use your imagination and picture a Black Bezel However I may have this one wrong, it could have been a 16800 (See post #79)






      Omega Seamaster 300 2531.80 (SMP300)




      Pierce Brosnan, from a little town called Navan in Co. Meath heralded the dawn of Omega as the choice for Bond, due mainly to a new designer and the links between Omega and British military watches. These were gadget laden watches. In “Golden Eye” he wears something with a battery or something in it called the 2541.80. However, by “Tomorrow Never Dies” they see sense and give him a 41mm automatic 2531.80, he continues with the 2531.80 throughout his tenure as Bond, so we see it in “The world is not enough” and “Die another day” as well. However I did read somewhere that they lost their marbles briefly again in “The world is not enough” and gave him a 36.5mm quartz 2561.80, however I am not sure on this.

      Here is one of my favourite Bond watches the Omega 2531.80.

        Omega 2220.80, Omega 2900.50.91





        A new Bond: Daniel Craig and new watches. In “Casino Royale” we still see the SMP in the form of the co-axial Seamaster 2220.80 but for the more rugged Bond look they also introduce the big 45.5mm Planet Ocean. He sticks with a PO until “Spectre”. However, he downsizes to the 42mm 2201.50 in “Quantum of Solace” and wears a custom-built Titanium with the newer 8500 movement for "Skyfall".

        Here is a cheapo Ali version of the 2220.80 (I still love it),




        A 45mm UPO and a Cheapo version of the 007 Limited Edition Skyfall (45.5mm with ceramic so not accurate, however the Skyfall in the film was Titanium the production model was Stainless Steel).

          Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre and Omega Aqua Terra 150m 231.10.42.21.03.003



          Spectre is all about retro and apart from a DB5 what better way to do it than a modernised Seamaster 300 with co-axial movement and a liquid metal bezel. He also wears one of my personal favourites the AT 150m.

          Below is the V6F Seamaster 300 Master co-axial, the V6F AT 150m and the Special edition V6F AT Spectre.

                              Thoroughly researched and great presentation. In the words of film critics Roger Ebert and Gene Siskel (both of blessed memories) "Two thumbs up, way up!"
