It seems to map to everything shot in New Orleans.

It's so curious - in that same director's chair photo shoot at the airport, they pose him with the Sub:

How strange, that one has a date window which the movie one doesn't.

He's not in costume is he? I don't recall that outfit. So I wonder why bring that watch along? I'd say maybe they were using it for promo purposes for Rolex but they never really did that then, did they?
Very odd, well done for finding it - I've never seen that photo before.

It will be pretty plausible that this is the same 1680 that he‘s wearing thru TMWGG while the „official“ Rolex is the 5513 again.

I may be making things up but it seems to be a red Submariner print on the dial, which makes it a Red Sub then

So, I‘ll put out a bold theory now:
The Louisiana scenes where right at the beginning of the movie.

Moore arrived there with his private Tissot on the wrist and that‘s how the first shot was done
The 5513 was still being prepared in Pinewood and Rolex

- either gave him a (closeby) 1680 for some promo shots with the watch
- gifted Moore a 1680 - it seems to me that he‘s just having a new love- look on his face as he checks his new private watch.

Are we sure the Tissot gets some screen time in TLOLD?
Looks like a red sub to me too

Congrats!  ajb007/cheers

I‘ve seen it also on Chrono24, but the dial looked blueish?
Can the metal strap still be ordered?

The dial color changes according to the light and angle.
It is simply beautiful.
The bakelite bezel makes all the difference.

The bracelet is very hard to find, if not impossible.

Re: Another unknown James Bond Rolex. First (in the Bond World) on AJB!!

Very well done, a very cool watch!
Roger Moore cool, it doesn‘t get any better!

Sooner or later one of these beauties will be added to the collection of Higgins.

Enjoy!  ajb007/cheers

The dial looks like almost like the iridescent exoskeleton of a beetle. It's very pretty in person.

What sort of price are they at the moment

68

Re: Another unknown James Bond Rolex. First (in the Bond World) on AJB!!

Nice I like that a lot.
How do you turn the bezel?

69

Re: Another unknown James Bond Rolex. First (in the Bond World) on AJB!!

Mine was $250 in 2018. I see similar conditions or better for $400-$600. Be careful of the case size; there's a smaller woman's version that looks very similar in photos.

Re: Another unknown James Bond Rolex. First (in the Bond World) on AJB!!

I've just been looking on eBay and some of those Seastars are very sexy. Look at this one:

Re: Another unknown James Bond Rolex. First (in the Bond World) on AJB!!

The bezel turns very easily.
There is no resistance.
I think the correct size is 36mm.
Price wise, it depends on the state if the watch and of course if there are box & papers.
Bakelite bezels (with no cracks) are harder to find.
I would say prices vary between $500 and $800.
There are different models for the PR-516: "Swiss" and "Visodate" inscription on the dial

72

Re: Another unknown James Bond Rolex. First (in the Bond World) on AJB!!

And yours (which isn't the "Visodate" but "Swiss" dial) has the 516 in red. MIne has a slight magnifier on the crystal over the date window.

I saw that.
There is also a day-date version and several chronographs.

Re: Another unknown James Bond Rolex. First (in the Bond World) on AJB!!

Interesting article in French and nice pics.

Re: Another unknown James Bond Rolex. First (in the Bond World) on AJB!!

Now there is only one question open:

Which dial variant was Roger‘s own watch?
Seems that the DayDate variant in e french article is really black.

Moore‘s watch from the pics was a date only, so maybe there was a black dial variant available?
