The Watches of James Bond Round Up
In the James Bond films, watches have played a key role in many of 007's adventures, from detecting radiation in Thunderball to housing a laser in GoldenEye, but the majority of James' watches just tell time. In the books, Ian Fleming only mentions one watch by name, Rolex, likely based on Fleming's own Rolex Explorer. The first mention of Bond's Rolex was in the novel Live and Let Die in 1954, the watch would again be referenced in On Her Majesty's Secret Service in 1963.
