1974 'The Spy Who Loved Me' Seiko 0674 'Ticker Tape' Wristwatch

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.
 
 
1974 "The Spy Who Loved Me" Seiko 0674 'Ticker Tape' Wristwatch

This watch was used to dispatch Bond back to headquarters. He was required to "pull out" of his current "mission", in a warmed up log cabin with a stunning blonde KGB agent.  A digital watch with an in built satellite link, short messages could be sent from MI6 and printed from the watch on a thin spool of tape.

Best bond movie opening scene ever? I think so (and my rating is based primarily on the first 5 minutes).

James Bond teams up with a sexy Russian agent to find nuclear submarines. Some of my favorite moments of the series are in this movie.

Spies who love each other
There are fans out there that have the tamarity out there to not watch James Bond after Sean Connery left the series.  Roger Moore wasn't as magnetic and the movies at times were lighter in tone then Connery's.  I love Roger but honestly, more then half his movies range from kinda stink to burn down any store that carries his movies.  Thankfully, this isn't one of them.      In this movie, James Bond is called into action to locate a device that is allowing a private …
