James Bond’s Breitling Top Time Watch To Be Auctioned at Christie’s



Christie’s will auction James Bond’s Breitling Top Time watch, worn by Sean Connery in the 1965 movie Thunderball, during its Pop Culture sale on June 26.

Made by Breitling in 1962, the watch was adapted by the James Bond art department and was the only example produced for the movie. It was the first watch to be modified by the famous Q Branch and is equipped with a “Geiger counter,” which in the film detects the emission of nuclear radiation.

The timepiece, which was recently bought at a garage sale for about $30, is estimated to earn between $60,500 and $90,750.
