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.

Once again, Bond uses several watch models in a movie, this time it is “Octopussy” where Bond used the Seiko G757 Sports 100 Homing Device/Hidden Microphone monitor watch.  Most fans will recall the important role it played in building tension to the circus sequence where a nuclear bomb was set to detonate if he didn't arrive in time to disarm it.

Bond's little airplane could be the cause for the mood whiplash.
It's taken me a while to want to write this review since out of all the Bond movies, this one is the one I've seen the least.  Oh sure there are worse Bond movies that I've seen more then this one and Octopussy does have a nice final act but the rest of the movie leaves a little to be desired.      Bond's newest assignment comes in the form of counterfeit Fabrage Eggs that are showing up on the market.  In connection is Prince Kamal Kahn who operates …

Convuluted and overly complicated film has a clearly past his prime Roger Moore as Bond battling Russians, smugglers and philanthropists from setting off an atomic bomb. Wavers too much in between the serious and silly tones.

About this movie

Wiki


Octopussy (1983) is the thirteenth spy film in the James Bond series, and the sixth to star Roger Moore as the fictional MI6 agent James Bond. The film's title is taken from Ian Fleming's 1966 short story Octopussy and The Living Daylights. However, the film's story is original and the short story is narrated as a flashback by the main Bond girl Octopussy. In the film, Bond is assigned the task of following a general who is stealing jewels and relics from the Russian government. This leads him to a wealthy Afghan prince, Kamal Khan, and his associate, Octopussy. Bond uncovers a plot to force disarmament in Europe with the use of a nuclear weapon.

Produced by Albert R. Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, Octopussy was released in the same year as the non-EON Bond film Never Say Never Again. Written by George MacDonald Fraser, Richard Maibaum, and Michael G. Wilson, the film was directed by John Glen.
