Everyone’s Favorite Super Spy James Bond Always has the Most Stylish Tech at His Disposal and that Includes the Bond Watches Seen on His Wrist.

A few of the Seiko digital watches worn by Roger Moore in the late ’70’s now look dated by today’s standards; you won’t see them here. What you will find are iconic Bond watches made for a man of action. Remember, James Bond’s best watches make great gifts as well.

Rolex Submariner

The submariner exploded in popularity when it became the watch of choice for Sean Connery’s James Bond watch in several classic 007 films, such as From Russia With Love.

We don’t recommend dressing a Rolex down with a narrow nato band, but Bond can do as he pleases.

We love this Rolex Submariner for its sports functionality and timeless style. It’ll look great on your wrist whether you’re 200 meters underwater or on land in a tuxedo.

Looking for a cheaper alternative with a similar style? Try this Invicta Men’s 8926OB Pro Diver

TAG Heuer 1000 Submariner Diver

Timothy Dalton played Bond as less of a playboy hero and more of a brooding killer, so it’s no surprise his watch choice was different too.

Dalton opted for this TAG Heuer 1000 Submariner Diver in his debut as James Bond in The Living Daylights.

This darker Bond flick deserves a second look.

There is just something rugged and capable-looking about TAG Heuer watches. If it were possible for a watch to have muscles than this watch would be pretty buff.

Omega Seamaster Professional

The Pierce Brosnan Bond films started the James Bond Omega connection. He wore the Quartz version of the Omega Seamaster Professional in GoldenEye. Brosnan went on to wear this watch in all four of his films in the franchise. It even ended up saving Bond’s life in a scene from Die Another Day.

Pierce Brosnan liked this watch so much, he wore it in four films.

This is one of the best looking and accurate watches you can get at this price point. A lot of watch aficionados end up making this their everyday watch.

Daniel Craig’s Wrist of Revolving Omega Bond Watches

Daniel Craig’s Bond broke out of the mold from previous Bond’s in many ways, and his watch game is no different. Craig’s 007 actually wears several different Omega watches in his collection of Bond adventures.

In Casino Royale Craig starts with an Omega Seamaster Diver like this but later switches to an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M very similar to this.  The Seamaster Planet Ocean delivers a sporty style with extreme water resistance up to 2000 feet.

Daniel Craig’s watches were actually customized in Skyfall from their available serial-number counterparts. Bond’s version swapped titanium for stainless steel and used Omega’s caliber 8500 system. One of the watches made special for the film was auctioned by Christie’s in 2012 for 200,000 euros.

Quantom of Solace found Bond wearing an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600 Meters Co-Axial and an attractive and comfortable blue-faced Seamaster Aque Terra. The Omega Aque Terra watches offer great value for quality.

In Spectre, Craig’s Bond once again opts for two watches. He wears another Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra in the opening scene, then later wears the limited edition Omega Seamaster 300 Spectre.


We can only assume more “Bond-edition” watches will come out with future films. Hopefully they are as great an investment as these best James Bond watches are.
