Daniel Craig will model the new Omega Seamaster Diver 300m 007 Edition to mark the occasion, 25 years after Bond wore the first of his 9 watches from the Swiss brand

A man who is at the peak of his physical condition, charming, intelligent, dangerous, desirable. There seems to be an endless list of adjectives that can be used to describe arguably the most famous character in history, James Bond.

When Sean Connery first came to our screens as the super smooth spy back in 1962 no one could have imagined the success that would follow. Fast-forward nearly 60 years and the latest edition of Bond is to return to our screens in ‘No time to die’, the 25th film in the series.

Daniel Craig will model the new Omega Seamaster Diver 300m 007 Edition to mark the occasion, 25 years after Bond wore the first of his 9 watches from the Swiss brand. Today, we look back at some of our personal favourite Bond watches over the years, from Breitling to Rolex, the man certainly has an eye for luxury.

The very watch worn by Sean Connery himself would later turn up at car boot sale where it was purchased for £25 by an educated bargain hunter

Film: Thunderball, 1965

Watch: Breitling Top Time

Actor: Sean Connery

By the third instalment, Bond and his trusty Rolex Submariner went together like spaghetti and meatballs. But it was Breiting’s Top Time that stole the show as it doubled up as a Geiger counter to help 007 locate atomic weapons in the 1965 film Thunderball. The very watch worn by Sean Connery himself would later turn up at car boot sale where it was purchased for £25 by an educated bargain hunter. Once he realised the Geiger counter wasn’t working any more, the watch was auctioned off & would go on to fetch an eye watering £103,875. That’s good business!

Film: Live and Let Die, 1973

Watch: Rolex Submariner ref 5513

Actor: Roger Moore

Rolex’s classic Submariner certainly helped Bond out of a couple of sticky situations in Live and Let Die which Roger Moore would have been grateful for, the legendary actor went on to play the part 7 times in total. We’re not sure on the science behind it, but Q and his handy team managed to squeeze a fully functional circular saw & bullet deflecting magnets inside this classic.

The Seamaster Professional 300M Ref. 2541.80 proved to be the perfect companion that helped Brosnan to stick around long enough to star in a further 3 Bond movies

Film: Goldeneye, 1995

Watch: Omega Seamaster Professional 300M Ref. 2541.80

Actor: Pierce Brosnan

With his thick irresistible accent and thick head of hair, Pierce Brosnan was a natural Bond in the mid-nineties. Goldeneye revolutionized Bond & was the debut year for the first Omega. Q had his way with the watch of course, with a built-in laser in the bezel & the ability to detonate large explosives with the push of a button, the Seamaster Professional 300M Ref. 2541.80 proved to be the perfect companion that helped Brosnan to stick around long enough to star in a further 3 Bond movies.

Bond was back in 2006 and looking as buff as ever. Daniel Craig was to debut in Casino Royale taking on terrorist funding private banker Le Chiffre in high stake poker games. Bond sports a couple of Omega watches during the film, with eagle eyed fans getting a view of the Seamaster planet Ocean ref. 2900.50.91 in the opening scene. For the most part, 007 wears the Seamaster professional Automatic that offers eye catching looks, however the movie is arguably most memorable for the eye wincing moments, which I’m sure most of the men will remember!
