If there is something we can all agree on is that James Bond is the most famous spy in the world and a very well known Hollywood character regardless of the actor who plays him. Another thing we all know is that everyone has their own favorite Bond movie and a favorite actor as her majesty’s spy 007.
All that makes any memorabilia from James Bond films highly collectible. One of the characteristics of Bond is the luxurious life he lives – fast cars, beautiful ladies and what not, everything Bond does has tons of style. One of the most seek after artifacts from the Bond franchise is a Bond’s watch. The man who invented 007, writer Ian Fleming, gave Bond’s watch special importance in the James Bond books. He once said “A gentleman’s choice of timepiece says as much about him as does his Saville Row suit”. Since the first Bond movie on 1962 the watches played important role. During the long life of the Bond franchise, he had watches from Rolex, Seiko and Omega.
On 1969′s Bond movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Services, actor George Lazenby played Bond for the first time and the last time! it was a one time gig and nobody really knows why. Lazenby was offered a 7 movie contract as James Bond and he turned it down! Some people will argue that Lazenby was the best Bond and that On Her Majesty’s Secret Services is the best Bond movie.
Here at The Dina Collection we have a lot of Hollywood memorabilia and lots of watches, but this watch is very special as it is the one Bond wore on On Her Majesty’s Secret Services!
In On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Lazenby wore two different Rolex Watches -Rolex Submariner and a Pre-Datyona Rolex Chronograph which is the one you can see in the picture below from the movie and is the one we have.
It’s a beautiful Rolex Chronograph with serial number engraved on it’s side. It’s one of those items we have in the shop that everybody ask about, but no one made a good offer on it yet. So we decided to put it online for you to see. Here is a direct link to it.
