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

Hope that this will make Jamesbondwobbles a bit upset because he was not first  ajb007/biggrin

In TMWTGG, the Thaiboxing scene when Bond searches Andrea's handbag, you can see a Date Bubble on Bonds Submariner (and probably 4 written lines under the handstack).

We see Bonds Submariner (No Date) in various scenes before and after - for this particular closeup there is a different Rolex on Bond's wrist (probably Moore's personal ??) - a Submariner-Date.

Submariner Dates of that time where the 1680, so we can add this to the list of Bond Submariners.

Kudos to G Carr on TRF who posted it first.


Am I allowed to post a screenshot of this particular scene?

You know - you can verify the honesty of people by checking what they don't say ( and not so much by what the do say)

Until today, he does not mention the M354-5010 just because I say that it was the same watch in Moonraker.

I guess that the same will happen with the 1680 in TMWTGG  ajb007/shifty

Excellent find.  Proves the point that even the dumbest blindest squirrel can sometimes find a nut.

DD thanks you for your efforts, but wants to make it clear that he spotted this a few weeks ago, but his loyal flunky hasn't yet updated his website. Said flunky will be disposed of at the earliest opportunity.  DD is and always has been the king of all things relating to Bond Watches.  Higgins is a mere interloper trying to steal the crown.   ajb007/shifty

Great find!  It definitely looks like a 1680 in the first picture due to the appearance of the "high hat" crystal.  The 1680 had a very flat crystal top and a squared off appearing side profile.  Less domed than its predecessor.  Too bad it's not the highly sought after red "Submariner" 1680.  That would have been awesome!

A slightly obese  ajb007/biggrin  bird contacted me claming that in most to all scenes ( with the exception of the Bottoms Up closeup) we may see a Submariner Date.

Will check the movie under that theory and am asking everybody else to do as well.

If that's true, it will be a major discovery in terms of Bond's watches - please let me know  about your discoveries, thanks!

Dissapointing, verrrryy dissapointing.

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

The only problem is that the 1680 Submariner is not the "hero" watch because it's not shown in close-up.  I guess it can be referred to as the "stunt" watch or "stand in".  Nevertheless, at least it can be positively identified as a Submariner unlike some other so called Bond watch discoveries that can't be positively identified and that change over time.
