James Bond watches: The most recent confirmed models for each of the identified brands

James Bond watches: The most recent confirmed models for each of the identified brands

This photo may well be the first single image to show the most recent example from each of the six known James Bond watch brands.

It’s certainly the most current.

Let’s take it from the top—

The only confirmed appearance of a Hamilton was when Roger Moore wore a Pulsar P2 LED digital in the Eon Productions film, Live and Let Die (1973). Top left.

Author Jeffery Deaver designated the latest James Bond Rolex in Carte Blanche (upper right), his novel published earlier this year by Hodder & Stoughton / Simon & Schuster. This is the Oyster Perpetual Date, reference 115200.

As a matter of fact, he wore the very watch shown here at his last US book tour stop in North Carolina last June: An A2536513 Bentley Motors T Speed chronograph with “Neptune Blue” (C781). James Bond wore this Breitling as part of his cover in Africa, late in Carte Blanche.

Lower left is an Omega 2201.50 Seamaster Planet Ocean. Until we have definitive identification of Omega watch designation(s) for Skyfall, this remains the most recent.

Middle-right, the last Seiko James Bond watch was a stainless steel model SPR007 chronograph with white dial, case number 7A28-7020. This was the choice for Roger Moore in A View to a Kill (Eon Productions, 1985).

Actor Timothy Dalton is believed to have worn a wristwatch similar to this throughout most of the action in The Living Daylights — although Heuer was not an official product placement partner in that 1987 Eon Productions 007 film.

Prior to taking this photograph, I synchronized all 6 watches to the exact time, same date. All were running, keeping good time. Click on image to see it at higher resolution.
