Who Is Making A Watch For 007?

In recent years, 007, from Pierce Brosnan to the latest Daniel Craig, wears OMEGA’s SEAMASTER in the movie. As a result, everyone believes that OMEGA is the authentic 007 watch. But which watch was worn by the 007 intelligence agent who first appeared on the screen?
Although 007’s author Ian Fleming described in the 1963 novel On Her Majesty’s Secret Service that James Bond used ROLEX Oyster Perpetual as a portable secret weapon. However, in the fifty-minute long black-and-white television film Casino Royale (re-remastered in 2007) broadcast on CBS on October 21, 1954, 007 wore the ROLEX SUBMARINER, which was released just the previous year, not Oyster Pepetual . This TV movie Casino Royale is arguably the first appearance of an Agent 007 on a fluorescent screen.
In fact, James Bond may wear another SUBMARINER for another reason: Bond’s identity in the original book is the commander of the Royal Navy. Interestingly, Ian Fleming himself is an officer of the Royal Navy. He was still in World War II. Intelligence units have worked. The Royal Navy’s military watch is SUBMARINER.
The first SUBMARINER used by 007 was later called SUBMARINER James Bond. However, it is very different from today’s SUBMARINER: it does not have crown guards or shoulders, and the crown, bezel and hands look very different. It was not until the second year that the SUBMARINER was revised that its iconic Mercedes hands and the 0 to 15 minute scale on the bezel appeared.
In 1962, 007’s first big screen movie Dr. No was released for the first time. Sean Connery Sean Connery still wears SUBMARINER. However, it is said that the manufacturer’s advertising awareness at that time was not strong. ROLEX was unwilling to sponsor a SUBMARINER to be worn by Sean Connery. Because of this allusion, today’s watch fans have also replaced their original oyster strap of SUBMARINER with NATO cloth watch to bring their memory to the past.
After that, several 007 movies including From Russia With Love in 1963, Goldfinger in 1964, Thunderball in 1965, and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in 1969 (different from the original novel). SUBMARINER.
