Ian Fleming's Rolex Wristwatch

Ian Fleming's Wristwatch, c. 1962, (ROLEX)

This Rolex 1016 Explorer was originally owned by James Bond 007-creator Ian Fleming. The watch was the inspiration for the very first literary James Bond watch as it appeared in Her Majesty’s Secret Service. The fictional James Bond character was a fixture of the Cold War era and beyond. Loan courtesy Fionn Morgan and Ian Fleming family.
