  1. Bond-leffoissahan on alunperin käyttänyt Rolexin Submarineria (60-/70-luku) ja esim Live and Let Die sisältää aika paljonkin Rolexista lähikuvaa.
    (Lindroosilla olisi myös näitä ollut varmaankin)

    80-luvun taitteessa näkyi myöskin Seikoa, sitten paluu taas Rolexiin Timothy Daltonin myötä (Submariner 16800 joka on vähän harvinaisempikin) jonka jälkeen vasta kuvioihin tuli Omega…

    Mielenkiintoinen artikkeli tämäkin kuitenkin 🙂
