From 1962 to today, James Bond has the best gadgets collection in the world. He’s the most famous tuxedo-wearing secret agent, and as well as weapons in his shoes, a jet pack, and a safe-cracking device, Bond’s watch collection is second to none. We delve into one of the most significant watch collections.Rolex Submariner 1953 worn by Sean Connery. Source: Rolex1962-1965The very first of James Bond’s luxury watches to be debuted on the silver screen was a Rolex Submariner – created by the luxury brand in 1953 – worn by Sean Connery in 1962 hit Dr. No. Using a Rolex stays true to the origins of 007, as it was the brand worn by the spy in Ian Fleming’s second novel Live and Let Die in 1954.This wasn’t a surprising choice of brand given Fleming himself wore a Rolex Explorer. In this film, the watch possesses no gadgets – just the standard feature of being waterproof to a depth of 100 meters (330 feet).This watch proved to be a favorite of Connery’s Bond, his watch of choice in From Russia with Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964) and also Thunderball (1965) – however, a Breitling Top Time is more commonly associated with the latter film (even though this was the first and last time Bond wore a Breitling).Unlike the Rolex, the Breitling did have some gadget function; Bond uses it to locate two NATO bombs stolen by Spectre in the Bahamas.George Lazenby wears a Rolex pre-Daytona Chronograph for his James Bond movie.

Like the Rolex’s before, this purely served as a watch with not hidden gadgets.1973 saw Roger Moore’s portrayal of the MI6 agent – one of the best-loved Bonds. Live and Let Die welcomed the return of Rolex Submariner, this time it was customized too with some new features; a magnetic field generator and a bezel that can act like a circular saw.Moore returned as Bond for The Man with the Golden Gun in 1974. Throughout the film, he can be seen wearing a Rolex Submariner – this would be the last time Moore wears a Rolex as Bond, and unlike the last, it had no gadget function.Moore stared in five more Bond films: The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), Moonraker (1979), For Your Eyes Only (1981), Octopussy (1983) and A View to a Kill (1985) and turned to Seiko watches. Gadgets include the ability to receive ‘ticker-tape’ messages, an explosive charge hidden in the watch case, and a tracker.James Bond, Timothy Dalton, wore a TAG-Heuer Professional Night Dive watch in “The Living Daylights (1987).
