James Bond Breitling goes to auction at Christie’s


A Breitling watch worn by James Bond in the 1965 movie Thunderball could fetch £60,000 at auction after being bought for just £25 at a car boot sale.

According to Christie’s, which will auction the watch in a memorabilia sale next month, the timepiece was originally made by Breitling in 1962 and then adapted by the James Bond art department.

In the movie, gadget man Q converted the watch into a Geiger counter that 007 of the day Sean Connery used to track down two stolen nuclear weapons.


In a statement Christie’s said: “This is a great opportunity for collectors to acquire a unique piece of James Bond memorabilia.”

The watch will go on sale at Christie’s South Kensington saleroom on June 26 in a Pop Culture sale.
