The only thing I'm sure of is that 99% of the internet is pulled out of somebody's ass.  Whether it's my link or your link falling into that category I really can't be bothered to find out. But I'll assume it's both!  Sorry for the digression, and doubly so if it's actually bullshit. :)

  They have a full list of watches worn in the Bond films with photos, and it mentions Rolex, Hamilton, Seiko, Breitling, and Omega, but Omega is not listed for anything prior to Goldeneye with Pierce Brosnan.  I also looked on Omega's website and there is a section on James Bond, but they don't talk about Bond wearing an Omega before Goldeneye.  Another site says before Omega was worn by Bond he wore Rolex watches (and they list From Russia with Love as one where he wore a Rolex. http://www.jamesbondlifestyle.com/product/rolex  I'm just curious what scene or which character wore the Omega DeVille in the photo you submitted.  If he wore it and you never see it in the film, it makes it sort of irrelevant. 

correct D. That photo linked isnt a "promo pic" I suppose that omega was out at the same time, but it wasnt worn by Connery in a bond film. Maybe he had one in his personal collection, but omega was never worn by bond prior to goldeneye

theres some internet crazies that dissect bond films....his watches are pretty much one of the most popularly discussed items he owns. Its not hard at all to find what watches he wore in any movie.

and to clarify....your link was the one pulled from someones ass wink.gif

With a PPK.

Just to add to the confusion, there was Breitling in "Thunderball", apparently.

 

Which I shall stick up my butt before ejecting myself from the DB5 and eating the 9mm from the Walther PPK as requested.  It's unpleasant, but a guaranteed YouTube hit.  Bite me, "Psy".  Gangnam style just got old.

Hi Derek,

 

Yea, I pretty much thought the "promo photo" looked like someone did it at home.  Sure Connery could have owned an Omega, but as you stated he never wore one in a Bond film.  If he had I'm sure Omega would mention it in their website section dedicated to Bond...but they make no mention of their watches and Bond films prior to Goldeneye.

Yes, Bond/Connery did wear a Breitling as did a lesser character in the Film Thunderball.  Bond's Breitling was equipped with a Gieger counter to detect atomic bombs that were supposedly on board villain, Largo's boat.  Bond's is the 2 subdial Breitling shown in this link.  http://watchesinmovies.info/movies/thunderball-1965/   There was also a 3 dial Breitling (maybe a Navitimer ...I've never been into Breitlings) worn by a pilot that gets killed early in the film.  Bond also wears a Submariner later in the film. 

 

The link I provided mentions watches worn in tons of movies (Bond, Deer Hunter, Glenn Garry Glenn Ross, etc).  You can search by movie or watch brand. Someone put a lot of time into that site, there are lots of photos of the watch scenes.

This is a Breguet ultra-thin automatic. Beautiful watch, I really like it. Unusual in that the hands are not blued steel, rather they appear to be black enamel.

Nice! Since we are WAY off topic, here's my contribution to the Walther discussion.

 

It's actually a Walther PP, a common German officer's sidearm which my Grandfather acquired at the end of the war. He left it to my Dad, who in turn left it to me. Sadly my Grandfather left it in a leather holster for decades so it suffered some damage to the finish.

 

Based on the serial number, it was manufactured in 1937 in Zella-Mehlis, Germany. I consider it part of my Bond collection nonetheless.

Still runs flawlessly.

From correct Bond watches to functional and lethal Nazi memorabilia.  And all of it interesting.  No wonder I keep reading this ridiculous forum...:)

The difference between the PP and the PPK is the PP had a slightly longer barrel.  Nice Walther thanks for sharing.
