A Christmas Present From James Bond...

A Christmas Present 

from James Bond


James Bond and Christmas...If we hop in the Rolex time machine and travel back to Christmas of 1974 we would see this movie poster for "The Man With The Golden Gun" which starred Roger Moore as 007.

Roger Moore wore his Rolex Submariner The 1974 James Bond movie, "The Man With The Golden Gun", as we see in the photo below with gorgeous Britt Ekland...If you want to learn much more about the history of James Bond and Rolex, check out my 13 Part Series titled: "The Complete History of James Bond Watches."

In The Man With The Golden Gun Britt Ekland wore a stainless steel Rolex Lady Datejust on an Oyster bracelet as seen below.

Roger Moore's portrayal of James Bond was interesting in the sense he played the ultimate cad. A Cad is a trashy version of a gentleman who has the appearance of a gentleman, but doesn't follow the moral code of gentlemen. A Cad might be tan year round. Bond is the perfect example of a Cad as he has no friends, kills people on a regular basis and will sleep with your wife—but foreigners and vulnerable women think he's related to the Queen :-)

The photo below shows Roger Moore checking the time on his Rolex single red Submariner [Reference 1680] on the set of The Man With The Golden Gun.
