Ever since I was a young boy I have always been enamored by fine watches.  So, ever since I was a kid, one of the alluring elements of Bond movies for me was to observe which types of watches were being used, especially by Bond.  As I matured I found that I share many of Bond’s predilections for enjoying the “finest” things life has to offer.  I think a fine watch is part of the character makeup for depicting Bond as a suave and “smooth operator.”  Admittedly, I am not quite as good looking as some of the Bond actors; however, I am as well travelled and I have had my share of exciting “missions” as a U.S. Army helicopter pilot.  As an adult, I came to appreciate fine watches more as I started earning some real money.  Now I will tell you that because I am a pilot I have a natural affinity for Breitling chronograph watches.  Unfortunately, Bond was only issued one Breitling by Q in the movie “Thunderball.”  However, I thought it would be fun to write about Bond watches, I hope you enjoy, tell me what you think and if you enjoy Bond watches as well.

An Omega Seamaster with blue face and bezel. Modified to incorporate a high-power laser diode, capable of cutting through two inches of steel.

Bond puts this into use to escape a potentially explosive situation. Q-Branch has also incorporated dual high-powered lasers into the design, and the casing is made from titanium.

Boring and cliche ridden Bond movie and that is saying something. Bond must protect and oil heiress from her old kidnapper.

Elektra screws Bond with a medieval torture chair
You know with Connery and Moore, they're third movies were really the charm and were huge hits over their other movies.  Shorty after this one came out, Entertainment Weekly ran an article called KILL BOND NOW!!!  The third time was not the charm for Brosnan as far as I'm concerned.      Bond's mission is pretty mulilayered and holding some depth with the murder of a construction company head who is building an oil pipline across Europe.  Fearing the …

About this movie

Wiki

The World Is Not Enough (1999) is the nineteenth spy film in the James Bond series, and the third to star Pierce Brosnan as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. The film was directed by Michael Apted, with the original story and screenplay written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Bruce Feirstein. It was produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

The title The World Is Not Enough traces its origins to the English translation of the Latin phrase Orbis non sufficit, revealed in the novel On Her Majesty's Secret Service and its film adaptation to be the Bond family motto. The film's plot revolves around the assassination of Sir Robert King by Renard and Bond's subsequent assignment to protect King's daughter, Elektra, who had previously been held captive by Renard. During his assignment, Bond unravels a scheme to increase petroleum prices by triggering a nuclear meltdown in the waters of Istanbul.

Despite the film's mixed critical reception, it earned over $361 million worldwide.
