R.I.P Sir Sean, Alex we are blaming you, and we have checked he is definitely dead, no #rogermooregate this time
but forget all this Bond and Submarines, Rikki has never seen Highlander, thats right the film where a Scotsman plays an Egyptian and a Frenchman plays a Scot
But as we all know the real James Bond wore a Panerai
Check Jakes site for all the info
And the Bond / Rolex thing was a fluke, clearly Sean has just left his watch at home that day
“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.”

Got into the horological hobby only a few short years ago; but got, as us Scots like to say, “baw deep” pretty quickly. Thanks to buying a lemon of a Rolex he spent hours researching why his watch wasn’t working and along the way gained an interest in what makes them tick. He now runs the Scottish Watches website and keeps cohort Rick in check on the twice weekly Scottish Watches podcast.
