This Rolex Reference 5513 Submariner has been modified by Q to include both a buzz-saw bezel, which Bond uses to free himself and Solitaire (Jane Seymour) before they could be fed to hungry sharks AND a hyper intensified magnetic field generator. It was strong enough to stop a bullet, which it did in Bond’s final showdown in the movie, as well as helped Bond unzip Madeline Smith’s dress without laying a finger on her. It was, after all, Sheer magnetism, darling.

The unique watch was produced by Rolex in 1972 and still has its original bracelet. The buzz saw bezel is still in place, the caseback is signed Roger Moore 007, and there is a small pinhole where there was once a thin wire installed to help unzip Miss Smith’s dress during filming.

Included in the sale will be the drawings which describe the unique working mechanism of the watch and two framed images of Moore wearing the watch as James Bond in the film. [Christie’s]
