“On the first day of filming in Jamaica the director Terence Young realized that the prop department had forgotten to give Connery a watch. What happened next is a bit unclear. Either Young gave Connery his own Rolex Submariner with a black leather strap, producer Albert “Cubby” Broccoli gave his, or a Royal Navy diver who was part of the film crew was the source.”
