Shaken not stirred. Aka. Not another Bond Watch Thread!!! (Pic. Heavy)

Shaken not stirred. Aka. Not another Bond Thread!!! (Pic. Heavy)

 

 

Something i threw together on RWI. I thought I might share it here. 

 

What is our fascination with this sociopath, misogynistic, alcoholic, emotionally dysfunctional, sickly charming, ruthless killing machine? He might be all these things but the films and the character exude style, taste and there is a little bit in all of us that wants to escape into the fantasy world in which he resides. One really has to question the effectiveness of a secret agent whose preference for alcohol beverages is known to every bartender in every exotic location throughout the world.

Anyway, lets re-visit the much written about Bond Watches. Along with Cars and women this is another area where the character displays great taste and style. However, the only thing he really chooses or seduces is the women, we know that Q (not @QueTip) chooses his cars and watches. So, Q is the man. The great thing for Bond, unlike us, is he gets them all for free.

 

So here we go, some but not all of the 007 watches. Hours of research watching and freeze framing went into this thread lol. Joking of course but now since this watch hobby (addiction) has overcome me I cannot watch a Bond film without my finger hovering over the pause button for those minuscule glimpses of 007 arm candy.

Rolex 6538.

There has been some debate over the years regarding what Rolex Sean Connery wears and the provenance of it. However due to the advent of DVD and Blue Ray it is now fairly obvious. As @Thrasher is tired telling people the Connery sub is a 6538 big crown, with a silver triangle and a 2 line metres first gilt dial. The strap was generally considered to be an admiralty grey nato. We now know it was a black red and green undersized RAF strap. It was also worn on a Black leather strap in Dr. No. and From Russia with love. The RAF strap appeared in Goldfinger. Again, in Thunderball the 6538 tells the time while the Breitling Top Time tells supplies the Geiger counter.

My version is the Helenarou Connery Submariner. It is a work of art in my biased opinion.

Rolex 5513

An early appearance of the 5513 is displayed by George Lazenby in “On her Majesty’s secret service”. It was made more prominently worn by Roger Moore in “Live and Let Die” and “Diamonds are forever”. It had the buzzsaw bezel in “Live and Let Die” and a handy magnet for disrobing young ladies. Apart from the quirky bezel it has a feet first 2 line dial.

 

The weird thing is when I was searching for images the photos of my watch and rivet bracelets are all over the internet lol so here it is my @JohnnyLazar built “Live and Let Die”.

Seiko something

Roger Moore wore a Seiko in Octopussy, indeed wore many as 007. I did know the model but unfortunately forgotten I am sure someone will tell me again. The great members at RWI discovered a very close approximation to this the Casio WorldTime or to the watch freaks (I do not include myself in that blanket statement) The Casio Royale. Nice find @Shelby1501.

Rolex 16610LN

Timothy Dalton’s weapon of choice in “Licence to Kill” was the infamous 5 digit. You must excuse my poetic licence here as I do not have an aluminium LN, so I improvised a bit lol. Use your imagination and picture a Black Bezel :) However a further caveat, it may not have been a 16610 but a 16800.

Omega Seamaster 300 2531.80 (SMP300)

 

Image result for pierce brosnan bond watchImage result for pierce brosnan bond watchImage result for pierce brosnan bond watch

 

Pierce Brosnan, from a little town called Navan in Co. Meath heralded the dawn of Omega as the choice for Bond, due mainly to a new designer and the links between Omega and British military watches. These were gadget laden watches. In “Golden Eye” he wears something with a battery or something in it called the 2541.80. However, by “Tomorrow Never Dies” they see sense and give him a 41mm automatic 2531.80, he continues with the 2531.80 throughout his tenure as Bond, so we see it in “The world is not enough” and “Die another day” as well. However I did read somewhere that they lost their marbles briefly again in “The world is not enough” and gave him a 36.5mm quartz 2561.80, however I am not sure on this.

Here is one of my favourite Bond watches the Omega 2531.80.

Omega 2220.80 and Omega 2900.50.91

 

Image result for daniel craig bond casino royale watchImage result for daniel craig bond casino royale watchImage result for daniel craig bond skyfall watch

 

A new Bond: Daniel Craig and new watches. In “Casino Royale” we still see the SMP in the form of the co-axial Seamaster 2220.80 but for the more rugged Bond look they also introduce the big 45.5mm 2900.50 Planet Ocean. He sticks with a PO until “Spectre”. However, he downsizes to the 42mm 2201.50 in “Quantum of Solace” and wears a custom-built Titanium with the newer 8500 movement.

 

Here is a cheapo Ali version of the 2220.80 (I still love it), a Cheapo version of the 007 Limited Edition Skyfall (45.5mm with ceramic so not accurate, however the Skyfall in the film was Titanium the production model was Stainless Steel) and a V4 UPO 2900.50.

Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre and Omega Aqua Terra 150m 231.10.42.21.03.003

Spectre is all about retro and apart from a DB5 what better way to do it than a modernised Seamaster 300 with co-axial movement and a liquid metal bezel. He also wears one of my personal favourites the AT 150m.

Below are the V6F Master co-axial, the V6F AT 150m and the Special edition V6F AT Spectre.

I throughly enjoyed this thread on RWI, no harm to have it here as well. Amusingly the great womaniser has only slept with 55 women in as many years, given that mostly they are one night stands and often dead soon after, the poor guy has had a lot of dry spells

He needs to have more than one film a year to boost his conquest count.

He is lagging slightly behind Dr Who on regenerations, but it is surely only a matter of time before James Bond is a woman. M already crossed the divide.

Kudos to you on this very interesting post Yllekp! I would love to know where you sourced your 5513. Thanks!

That is a Cartel 5513 with a 2836. The case has been reshaped and lugs drilled. The dial and hands are Yuki and it has a gen replacement plexi. @xj4sonx has it now. I have a new Franken 5513.

I am okay with that

You just gave me permission to pimp you out :)

 

Totally agree brother. Recently it was taking me 3 hours plus to get through PMs and alerts and that is if I stayed away for only 8 hours. It was getting nuts. I stayed away from the fora a bit as the actions of that hacker really got to me. Now I am just having fun and getting to read about stuff for once instead of spending every minute of my free time on speed on RWI.

Nothing like 45 about 25 more like excluding people I talk to regularly. Some take a lot of explanation. Mostly Noobs but everyone gets those if you are any way friendly.

Awesome to have you guys here and although it is sad that RWI is down, it is good you are getting to taste what the hobby is really about again. Being a Mod does take time and although this quiet backwater is much more peaceful than your place of work, I do know the joys of a PM box. While you are here feel free to use our PM system to do what you need to do and know that all the Mods here welcome you and give you a sort of diplomatic status for want of a better expression
