Bond Style: The Watch

James Bond has always been a man of impeccable style. No matter the heat of the situation he finds himself in – from death-defying chases, to charming the pants off a series of beauties – he has always kept true to a few constant elements. One of these elements has always been his watch. Whether filled with mind-blowing technology or oozing suave style, Bond always has a timepiece on his wrist.


As the eagerly anticipated release of the next Bond film, Skyfall, approaches on the horizon, current Bond Daniel Craig will be guaranteed to be in the possession of a stunning timepiece. Of course James Bond is a true discerning gent, but so are you and all discerning gents are in need of a timepiece!


In celebration of Skyfall, Elysium Magazine picks out three watches that epitomise the true essence of 007 timepiece style. They are great on the eye, stunning on the wrist and accurate no matter how tough a situation you find yourself in. Time to grab yourself a slice of Bond style.


Mühle Glashütte SAR Rescue Timer

With a name that could also double up as a Bond villain, this Mühle Glashütte is a classy number. The black dial with black and silver bracelet strikes a handsome balance that could compliment a dinner suit with ease. It’s also waterproof to 1,000 metres too, should you ever need the time whilst taking on the bad guys at the bottom of the ocean.

Glycine Airman Base 22 Purist

With a name you might easily confuse with the latest gadgetry to come from Q’s laboratory, this Glycine is worthy of 007’s wrist and that of a discerning gent. The black dial draws the attention with the level of detail while the silver bracelet exudes style. Team this timepiece with a slick suit to clinch the deal, or get the girl.

Radiating masculine über style, you’ll be ready for action with this on your wrist.

The 52 gas tube lights guarantee unbeatable low light reading. A patented amortiser also protects the rotary movement from severe shocks…like a hit from Jaws or Odd Job.
