Live and Let Die – 1973

After Sean Connery and the Bond character part ways once again, the director decides to give the role to Roger Moore, who is already a famous actor with his agent role in The Saint.

In the movie, the Submariner appears with two uncommon features. The first one is that it can stop bullets with a magnetic field and the second one the watch’s bezel can also be used as a saw.

These two features not only save Bond’s life, but they also make his private life more fun.

The other watch in the movie is a Hamilton Pulsar P2 Digital Led. In today’s terms using a digital watch along with a Rolex might not seem a smart move but during the 70’s the situation was very different.

In those years, digital watches were extremely rare and precious. It was impossible for James Bond not to use one of these watches.

The Man With The Golden Gun – 1974

Rolex Submariner 5512

Rolex’s Submariner 5512 took its place in Roger Moore’s second appearance as Bond. The 5512 has its technical and visual differences from the 5513.

Also, as the 5512 has much lower production numbers as the 5513, it makes it more desirable to collectors.

The Spy Who Loved Me – 1977

Seiko Quartz LC 0674-5009

Although in this movie we see a Seiko equipped with some “agent” extras there is no scene with a Rolex. It is known that Roger Moore is a Rolex fan in his personal life. As for Seiko, it was a functional and luxurious choice for its time.

Moonraker – 1979

Seiko M354-5019 Memory Bank Calendar

In the movie, there are plenty of Seiko watches and commercials to be found. Apparently the quartz crisis during those years has affected Mr. Bond’s style just as much. The extra features of the watch once again save Mr. Bond’s life.

Seiko’s reign in the Bond movies continues in this one. The H357 model features both an analog and a digital screen, and Bond uses the watch to communicate with the headquarters.

As for the Tuna watch, it is a well known design of Seiko. It is still among the brands offerings.
