Not long ago we wrote about original Rolex 5513 Submariner, worn by Roger Moore in that cult film from 1973 – Live and Let Die, which is estimated between $230,000-$450,000. Besides this, one of Sir Roger’s personal Rolexes is now up for auction at Christie’s in Geneva on November 14, 2011. It is Rolex Sea-Dweller and proceeds from the sale are going to UNICEF of which Sir Roger Moore is an ambassador.
Project X Designs created two Rolex Sea-Dweller ref.16600 watches for Sir Roger Moore in 2009 and named it the Sir Roger Moore Edition. The other Sir Roger More Edition (Rolex Submariner), remains in his possession.
It is a typical ref.16600 Sea-Dweller, but with some very cool modifications like the Diamond Like Carbon coating, including a DLCed luminous dot, or pearl as some refer to it. The watch also features Double Red dial text, and the case back has been engraved with the Sir Roger Moore Special Edition 02/02 wording and numbering.
The watch is being delivered on a nato strap, with military fixed bars to keep it safe and in place. Besides the customized Sea-Dweller, you will receive its original box and paper work by Rolex. A Project X Designs certificate of customization signed by Sir Roger Moore, a Project X Designs watch roll, hang tag and guarantee card, a signed copy of Sir Roger Moore’s autobiography and a signed photo of Sir Roger Moore in his days as James Bond (007).
