Own the Rolex Worn by George Lazenby in Bond Movie ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’
Timepiece set to be auctioned off on July 18
At the time, much ado was made about the new face of James Bond in 1969’s alpine thriller, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. That is, Aussie model/actor George Lazenby, who became the youngest actor to ever portray Bond at just 29.
But the buzz would be short-lived, as Lazenby bowed out after just one film. Despite this fact, OHMSS is one of the franchise’s best, and now Bond fans have a chance to own an iconic piece of Bond-wear from it. Paris-based auction house Artcurial is set to auction off the Rolex watch that Lazenby wore as Bond in the film. Purchased by Eon Production in October 1968 from a Swiss retailer, the watch sold in a 2003 Christie’s auction for nearly $40,000. Check out the watch below. At the bottom, watch the opening fight scene, featuring Lazenby’s famous one-liner at its conclusion.
