I’m a huge 007 fan. It probably came to be from watching all of the movies constantly with my dad growing up but I just love the series. I was recently linked this awesome infographic about the various watches Bond has worn over the years which has me wondering what he’ll be sporting in Spectre. Also, what bonus features if any it’ll have jam packed into it. As I’ve recently been starting to actually wear my watches again this also reminded me that as someone who works in IT and on the side as a blogger and writer that I’ll never be able to afford a Rolex.
I do have to say I highly prefer the look of the non-digital watches. I can’t imagine adding a digital, or these days a SmartWatch to my (very small) collection.
For decades James Bond has been considered the epitome of style and sophistication. Yet each Bond has had their own unique look to go along with their own, quite different, portrayals of the character. Some are at the darker end of the spectrum, while others have been more playful as they seduced their way around the globe. The different tone of each Bond is reflected not just in the way they approach being an international super-spy, but also in what they wear on their wrist. Just like with everyone else, you can tell a lot about a Bond by their choice of timepiece. This is not restricted to the look and feel of the watch they choose, but also includes how they use that watch. For example; while some Bonds enjoy using the full range of Q gadgetry in their watches others prefer a watch that simply looks great and tells the time.
In this infographic we hail every watch that has graced the wrist of James Bond and go on to say what their choice of watch says about their interpretation of the role. From the classic Rolex Submariner, through the digital era of Moore, to the Omega years of Brosnan and Craig every watch here has added in its own way to the story of James Bond.
