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. It was also equipped with a button used to arm and disarm the magnetic mines. For "The World Is Not Enough", the watch is fitted with a miniature grappling hook which includes a 50 foot high tensile micro filament, able to support 800 pounds. 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.
