From Rolex With Love- A Look at the Bond Watch Legacy | iW International Watch Magazine
In the first four Bond films – Dr. No, From Russia with Love, Goldfinger and Thunderball – Connery can be seen wearing a reference 6538 Submariner with several different strap combinations. Goldfinger features what is arguably the most iconic shot of Connery’s wrist, in which he illuminates the dial of the watch with his lighter to check the time. One of the most prominent characteristics of this watch is its lack of crown guards and a “big crown,” distinguishing it from a large majority of the Submariner family. Measuring 38mm, the rugged diver was a natural choice for the British Secret Service Agent, whether it is paired with Bond’s white dinner jacket in Goldfinger or on the beach off the coast of Jamaica in Dr. No.
