The Model for 007 was the Rolex Submariner 5508...

For some reason they decided to have Bond wear his Rolex Submariner on a NATO Military Strap.

Perhaps this was to make it look better with a suit, or because the British Royal Navy Divers wore them of NATO straps.

These old Rolex Submariner Model 5508's are very highly collectable these days. One vintage Rolex Submariner recently sold at auction for $250,000.
