Definitive Rolex Series: Pussy and James, His & Hers Rolex Watches From Goldfinger...

Sean Connery and Honor Blackman played James Bond & Pussy Galore in the epic James Bond movie, Goldfinger, but what many people don't know is that they both wore Men's Sport Rolex Watches in the movie.

As a matter of fact Pussy Golore's character wore a Rolex GMT Master (Reference Number 6542) and James Bond wore a Rolex Submariner (Reference Number 6538). Many Rolex collectors actually refer to these two watches by the names "The Pussy" & "The James Bond."

The Pussy & The James Bond

Hardoque from Germany is a big Rolex collector and he owns what he refers to as a "Pussy" and a "James Bond." He took this amazing photo of his flawless mint-condition "Pussy" and "James Bond" side by side as seen above.

In the movie Honor Blackman plays a lipstick lesbian who is Goldfinger's personal Pilot. When James first sees her he tries to seduce her and she tells him she is not into men. James of course ends up seducing her in the end.

In the photo above and in the two photos below we get a very clear shot at seeing Pussy's Coke Rolex GMT Master (Reference 6542).

One of the profound historical events in this movie is that it represents the first time a woman ever wore a Man's Sport Rolex in Film History. Today it is very common for women to wear men's Rolex Watches, and it all started here.

Next we move on to James Bond's Rolex Submariner on the NATO Strap. It is a Rolex Reference 6538, which is set apart from other Rolex Submariners because it has no crown guards and a Jumbo Crown & Maxi Markers.

In the beginning of Goldfinger James Bond starts out wearing his Rolex Submariner over his wetsuit. Then once he takes of his wetsuit he puts his Submariner on his wrist under his cuff.


When Sean Connery lights his cigarette he checks his Rolex Submariner to see when the bomb he planted will explode. This close up shot of his watch created generations of fans who wanted a Rolex Submariner because they saw the ultra-cool spy, James Bond sporting it here.

This photo below is not from the movie. It is a rare and candid shot of Sean Connery partying with Honor Blackman. Sean Connery seemed to love the ladies as much off screen as he did on screen.

The photo below is a publicity shot from Goldfinger:

This last shot is also a publicity shot from Goldfinger that shows Pussy initially resisting James Bond's advances.
