A Quick Tip by MNeulander

  • Oct 11, 2010
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.

James Bond generally preferred wearing a Rolex Submariner (it was Ian Fleming’s personal watch of choice while writing the books), or an Omega Seamaster throughout the movies; however, when issued a specialty watch from Q-Branch, 007 has worn every gadget watch from Geiger counters to circular saws. Uncharacteristically, the first James Bond movie, “Dr. No” had no real gadgets at all.
