The digital watch didn’t last long – Miss Moneypenny is the next in what is quickly becoming a very crowded house at an unearthly time of day.
Along with his tickets to New York, 007 is handed a watch that Q had repaired for him; a 5513 Rolex Submariner.
The UK was facing tough times and in 1973 many were faced with three day working weeks. M takes time out to remark upon Bond’s wanton excesses, “I am sure the over-burdened British taxpayer will be fascinated to know how the special ordinance section disperses its funds. In future Commander, allow me to suggest a perfectly adequate watch-maker, just down the street.”
And with that, 007 promptly pulls M’s spoon from his saucer with the extremely powerful magnet within his watch’s bezel. “You see, by pulling out this button sir, it turns the watch into a hyper-intensified magnetic field, powerful enough to even deflect the path of a bullet.”
