James Bond watch choice for actor Roger Moore as Agent 007 in A View to a Kill, Eon Productions, 1985. It moves a bit past our James Bond reference, but it seems like something he might appreciate.

If there was any on-screen Bond that I took inspiration from, it would be Sean Connery's Bond and Daniel Craig's Bond. Definitely not Brosnan's Bond. Since 007 is a fictional character after all, I wanted to incorporate a pinch of the on-screen hero's persona into a realistic individual that I would be creating the EDC list for There is a blooper. Roger Moore’s Rolex with the saw was not used to remove handcuffs but rope that he is tied up with on the platform.Connery again wears Reference 6538 in Goldfinger, where it’s attached to a much-too-narrow textile strap.

From Bonds' first adventures he has been seen with Rolex, Breitling, Seiko, and TAG, but not until 1995 did someone decide Omega was the watch for Bond.

Ian Fleming wrote Casino Royale, his first novel about the adventures of the charming MI6 agent, while on his honeymoon in 1952 From a modern perspective, its easy to look down upon the camp nonsense that Moore's Bond was doing in the 1970s and 1980s, and similarly his clunky Seikos. It's important to know that at the time, these were the pinnacle of technological horology and having Bond wear a Seiko made perfect sense.

There has been much debate over the years in regards to the color and type of strap worn by Bond throughout the film. . Ian Fleming wrote Casino Royale, his first novel about the adventures of the charming MI6 agent, while on his honeymoon in 1952. Although Bond immediately showed extraordinarily good taste in automobiles and clothes, his wristwatch wasn’t identified until Fleming’s second novel, Live and Let Die (1954). Bond wears a Rolex in this book, which is not surprising, because Fleming himself wore a Rolex Explorer, Reference 1016, on an extensible Oyster riveted strap. Fleming’s affection for Rolex is apparent in the first James Bond film, where Bond, played by Sean Connery, casually straps on a Rolex Submariner without a date display while hunting the nefarious Dr. No, for whom the movie is named. Reference 6358 has a leather strap here. Film buffs believe that this model was one of Sean Connery’s personal possessions.
Presuming you can get a bikini-clad Halle Berry off the mind, you’ll notice that the Omega Seamaster Professional 300M Ref. 2531.80 is back for Brosnan’s final Bond film. Harkening upon its gadget-infused predecessor—aka the tricked-out “Goldeneye” watch—this one features both a built-in laser and detonator.As Omega becomes a larger part of the Bond image, it is interesting to see how frequently his watch is updated between films and how the character is treated by Omega. Over the course of 4 films, Daniel Craig as Bond has never worn the same Omega watch twice and Omega consider James Bond as an ambassador for the brand, seperate from the actor playing him.

In other scenes, Bond wears three Seiko watches, including a Seiko Diver’s 150m.
When Bond activates the 'loud alarm' of the watch by spinning the crown, the hour markers flash red in a way reminiscent of the magnetic field Rolex from Live and Let Die. This was the first time that Daniel Craig has had a 'gadget watch'.Moments later, Moneypenny gives James Bond his repaired Rolex Submariner with two gadgets from Q: a magnetic field generator and a bezel capable of acting as a circular saw. There were two modified Rolex Submariners made by the prop department; one with a special dial whose hour markers changed to red upon turning the bezel and another with a mechanism to allow the bezel and dial to spin at high speeds. Both watches had the second hand removed from the dial and the movement removed from the case. In tune with the quartz era that marked Roger Moore's reign as Bond, a couple of techie, digital Seikos and a glowing red Pulsar digital watch made their way on to the spy's wrist, including the Seiko Liquid Crystal TV Watch featured in Octopussy in 1983, which allowed Bond to admire more than the time
Pierce Brosnan remains faithful to the Omega Seamaster in his fourth adventure. This chronometer saves 007’s life in Die Another Day thanks to an explosive charge in its helium valve that can be detonated via the bezel. A powerful laser in the watch’s crown serves Bond well in his battle against the evildoer Gustav Graves. In the earlier films, James Bond usually wore a Rolex Submariner watch. Starting with “Goldeneye,” Omega became the franchise’s official watch partner. Hence, Bond alternately wears Rolex and Omega watches at certain points in the franchise history.The Seamaster 300 is a very special watch within the history of Bond watches, as it is the first watch worn by James Bond in a film to be released as a limited edition.

There is much debate regarding the owner of the Submariner; some believe it to be Connery's personal watch (unlikely), others believe it belonged to either Terence Young, the director, or Albert 'Cubby' Broccoli, the producer. Others say that it belonged to an ex-Royal Navy diver who was on the crew of the film. It is likely that the knowledge of who owned this watch has long been lost to time.

I came across this Casio on Amazon, and it immediately reminded me of the Bond Seiko. It tracks four timezones, has digital plus analog display, day, date, year, stopwatch, alarm. Strapped in on a HR rubber strap and man I just love wearing this The litany of Timepieces aside, actually James Bond first appeared on the Silver Screen, on the small screen, in 1954. An American TV Series Climax took Casino Royale and adapted it with Barry Nelson as the first James Bond, though despite Ian Fleming’s authorship, cast him as an American, along with Peter Lorre as Le Chiffre, Linda Christian as Valerie Mathis and Michael Pate as ‘Clarence’ Leiter.You’ve run through the movies and the watches in order but still have some questions.

Roger Moore’s debut as Agent 007 introduced a new era for the franchise itself. It also brought back the classic Rolex Submariner, but with a now-iconic twist. Thanks to some handiwork by Q and his team, the watch additionally functioned as both a circular-saw and a magnet, predictably helping Bond out of a jam or two. The second set of exclusive James Bond watch images for this month highlights the Neptune Diver Seiko.

The owner then turned around and resold the watch for over £100,000 at auction.

The Aqua Terra can seen most prominently in the opening scene in Mexico City and when Bond is in his comically unfurnished London flat (How things have changed from Moore's copper filled kitchen from Live and Let Die). Moonraker marks the first and last time that James Bond would go to space. Throughout the years, Bond films have had a tendency to chase the latest craze or technology (blaxploitation films for Live and Let Die, John Woo-esque gun play for Tomorrow Never Dies or Bourne Identity shaky cam fight scenes for Quantum of Solace) and in 1977, a little film called Star Wars had set the world on fire.
