Is it only Omega who have special bond watches?

Swatch have done Bond watches over the years, recently released a Limited Edition Q Watch from the new film No Time To Die which all 7007 are sold out but people are selling these off.

 

Thanks to original poster for such detail with all the model numbers, this has given me inspiration to hunt down for the right price the Seiko 7A28-7020 from A View To A Kill.

Never liked those Omegas with 007 on the dial, used to look at them and think great looking iconic watch spoiled by gimmickry!

I think its time for a brand change. I hate to say it, but Bremont should be next.

Thats a great post. Looking through I think Hamilton have rereleased their watch from Live and Let Die. Saw it pop up on instagram recently. Very unusual style.

As others have stated, great post. Very interesting the variety of watches bond has worn over the years, and it's got me looking for a tag from my favourite bond film, the living daylights!

Famous British pilot Sheila Scott, is believed by some to have been the inspiration behind Pussy Galore. Preferred a GMT Master

Nice, with a few surprises,  especially before the product placement that started in the 90s.

Anyone else liked to have seen more of David Niven as Bond? Without a very tongue in cheek script.

Oh dear, so many Seiko watches - that's disappointing - I like Seiko :rolleyes:

So do I...Roger Moore wore a Seiko G757- 5020 in Octopussy...this model had a horseshoe shaped bezel surround.

Seiko G757 Sports 100 James Bond Watch

I have the same module (G757) but with a square bezel...the G757-4010....same watch, different case, and on a bracelet...winner! :thumbsup:

Seiko G757-4010

I quite like the watches , it was just a sarky dig at the whole 007 silliness really , bit like civvies wearing a 'royal marines' watch. Moore easily the worst bond too :tongue:.

Apparently, for the 3rd outing, all the agents, UK and USA are going to wear TAGs.
