If you want to look as cool as James Bond, here’s your chance to stock up on one of his coolest accessories (via Hodinkee).The Rolex Roger Moore wore in “Live and Let Die” is up for auction through Christie’s in Geneva next month.
It’s expected to sell for between $230,000 amd $450,000.
In the movie, the watch, a Rolex Reference 5513, has been tweaked by Q to include a buzzsaw bezel, which Bond uses to free himself and Solitaire (played by Jane Seymour) and the watch has a “hyper intensified magnetic field generator” that was used to stop a bullet.
The buzzsaw bezel is still in place on this watch. The caseback is also signed “Roger Moore 007.” There’s a small pinhole where there was once a thin wire installed to help unzip Miss Smith’s dress during filming.
The watch itself was produced by Rolex in 1972 and still has its original bracelet.
Bond, of course, was also known for sporting a tuxedo.
