At TVG we’re interested in practically anything 007 related and anything watch related – combining the two is cause for serious excitement! Naturally when I saw a link to the watches of James Bond I was cheering. Dream Chrono have put together this great infographic of 007’s entire collection of watches starting at Felming’s Explorer Ref.1016 (which we featured in our last Rolex buyer’s guide) and onto Albert Broccoli’s own Submariner Ref.6538 which he gave to Sean on the set of Dr. No because Rolex wouldn’t provide them with a watch for the film. There’s also a short stint from Breitling which many are unaware of with Bond wearing a personal favourite, the Top Time Ref.2002 in Thunderball.
Whether you’re a Bond man or a watch man it’s an interesting snap shot through the history of 007 and the watch industry.
