TAG Heuer Brings Back James Bond’s ‘The Living Daylights’ Dive Watch
James Bond is known for his love of Omega and Rolex watches, but for a brief moment in the 80s, the famous secret agent wore a TAG Heuer. When Timothy Dalton stepped into the role of 007 for the first time in The Living Daylights, he ditched the Seiko watch worn by Roger Moore in A View to a Kill for a TAG Heuer.
Affectionately known as the “Night Diver” by fans, this luxury watch was the first time Bond had worn a watch with an illuminated dial. Although The Living Daylights had no official watch sponsor, the Night Diver soon became popular amongst watch aficionados and moviegoers alike.
As the countdown to the 25th Bond film, No Time To Die, gets closer, TAG Heuer has dropped a revamped version of the watch.
The TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 is a sleek and stealthy dive watch powered by a Calibre 5 automatic movement, enabling a 38-hour power reserve and 300 meters of water resistance. This is housed in a 43 mm stainless steel case coated in black DLC with a black ceramic bezel.
The white dial is horizontally grooved and treated with Super-LumiNova, enabling it to glow fluorescent green in the dark. Unlike the original watch that had a steel metal bracelet, the updated Aquaracer Professional comes with a rubber strap and includes a black DLC stainless steel clasp.
A heavy-duty timepiece, the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 is also reasonably priced at $3,350 and available online and in select stores.
