"Bond ignored him. 'Now in order to tell the difference between good and evil, we have manufactured two images representing the extremes- representing the deepest black and the purest white- and we call them God and the Devil. But in doing so we have cheated a bit. God is a clear image, you can see every hair on His beard. But the Devil. What does he look like?' Bond looked triumphantly at Mathias. Mathias laughed ironically. 'A Woman.'"
Your AE1200 is awesome, but it's not a “Bond Watch”. Here are 26 facts to support my argument:
The AE1200 was not worn by Commander Bond in Dr. No (1962)

Furthermore the nickname “Royale” is misleading. My understanding is that:
“Royale” is an abbreviation of “Casio Royale”.
“Casio Royale” is an allusion to Ian Fleming's “Casino Royale”.
“Casino Royale” is the name of one Bond novel (1953), and two Bond movies (1967 and 2006). I have not found references to the AE1200 before 2012, so it seems completely impossible that a 2012-released product could have been featured in any of the Bond Casinos Royale.
Now let's talk about the Seiko G757
Bond wore a digital watch in Octopussy. Octopussy was released in 1983, which is 29 years before the AE1200 seems to have been released, so it is impossible for the AE1200 to have been in Octopussy.
The digital watch worn by Bond in Octopussy was made by Seiko. The Seiko Group and Casio Computer Co., Ltd. are different companies, and Casio does not own Seiko. In other words, the digital watch worn by Bond in Octopussy was not a Casio, and therefore could not possibly have been the Casio AE1200.
I have heard arguments that the Casio AE1200 (not worn by Bond in any movie) and Seiko G757 (worn by Bond in Octopussy) are so similar that the Casio AE1200 should be considered a Bond watch. This is a weak argument that does not stand up to minimal scrutiny. For the sake of argument, let's accept that watches not worn by Bond can be considered to be Bond watches if they match real Bond watches in specific areas. Let's compare the Casio AE1200 and the Seiko G757 to establish those areas:
Display Type (digital)
Hands (hour, minute, second)
Number of buttons (4)
Dial shape (octagon)
Country of Origin (Japan)
Now if you believe that the Casio AE1200 is a “Bond watch” because it matches a real bond watch in the above categories, then you would also believe that any watch matching other real Bond watches (let's use an Omega Seamaster 300 for example) in those categories would also be a “Bond Watch” * Display Type (analog) * Hands (hour, minute, second) * Number of buttons (0) * Dial shape (circle) * Country of Origin (Switzerland) This would include so many watches so as to render the concept of a “Bond watch” meaningless.
So wear your AE1200 with pride, but respect it for what it is and stop pretending it's a Bond watch.
Dia adalah karakter paling ikonik di bioskop, dia pasangan terbaik dengan Ratu dan dia sudah lebih banyak film daripada Freddy Krueger, Harry Potter dan Iron Man digabungkan, namun tetap saja James Bond tetap menjadi misteri. Hanya ada beberapa hal yang semua orang tahu tentang 007 - senjata favoritnya, bagaimana dia mencampurkan minumannya, bahwa dia kucing liar di karung - tetapi dia terkenal menjauhi Hello! Majalah photospread dan dia jarang terlihat di sampul panas. Jadi bergabunglah dengan kami ketika kami mencoba untuk menjelaskan agen resmi Blighty sebelum peluncuran Skyfall, dengan hal yang (mungkin) tidak Anda ketahui tentang James Bond.
Shake, Tidak diaduk
Minuman yang disukai Bond dalam buku Bond pertama Ian Fleming, Casino Royale, adalah Vesper Martini - bagian gin, bagian vodka dan sentuhan anggur Lillet Blanc. Namun, ketika tiba saatnya untuk syuting film Bond pertama, Dr. No, Smirnoff membayar agar vodka mereka dipromosikan, artinya mereka tidak menginginkan gin yang disebutkan. Minuman keras Bond dengan cepat menangkap dan mengubah budaya koktail selamanya.
Menurut pengetahuan Bond, James muda sempat dididik sebentar di Eton, sebelum melanjutkan belajar di Fettes College di Edinburgh, sekolah umum yang dihadiri oleh Ian Fleming sendiri, dan beberapa cowok yang disebut Tony Blair. Tidak seperti kedengarannya, Sean Connery pernah menjadi tukang susu sekolah ("Saya akan minum setengah liter. Skim bukan semi-skim").
Yang terbaik dari Blighty sebenarnya setengah Skotlandia dan setengah Swiss. Dalam novel Bond, orang tua James - Andrew Bond dan Monique Delacroix-Bond - meninggal dalam kecelakaan pendakian di Pegunungan Alpen Prancis, yatim piatu pada usia 11. Dia kemudian pergi untuk tinggal bersama bibinya di sebuah desa kecil dekat Kent disebut Pett Bottom, yang mungkin menjelaskan sikapnya terhadap wanita.
Penulis Ian Fleming berbasis 007 pada sejumlah mata-mata yang berbeda - belum lagi pengalamannya sendiri, mengingat bahwa ia menjabat sebagai Petugas Intelijen Angkatan Laut selama Perang Dunia II - tetapi inspirasi terbesar untuk Bond adalah bahasa Inggris polymath John Dee. Seorang jenius serba dan badass abad ke-16, Dee akan menandatangani surat-suratnya untuk raja Elizabeth I dengan mesin terbang '007', menandakan mereka hanya untuk matanya.
Bond Kelima Pierce Brosnan telah lama dikejar oleh para produser Eon untuk peran tersebut, tetapi karakternya lebih besar daripada prospek karir seorang aktor tunggal. Ketika ia menandatangani kontrak untuk GoldenEye, Brosnan diberitahu bahwa, meskipun ia bebas untuk mengejar peran tambahan lainnya di antara film-film Bond, aktor itu tidak bisa muncul di film lain mengenakan tuksedo.
Ketika datang untuk memberikan agen rahasianya sebuah nama, Fleming menginginkan nama "datar, tenang", yang bertujuan untuk membuatnya menjadi seorang pria "sangat membosankan, tidak menarik" kepada siapa hal-hal menarik terjadi. Fleming melihat buku ornitologi, 'Burung-burung West Indies' oleh James Bond, dan berpikir: "Demi Tuhan ... itu adalah nama yang paling membosankan yang pernah saya dengar." Jelas dia belum pernah melihat snooker memainkan Nigel Bond dalam aksi.
Cetak Biru Bond
Di antara inspirasi lain untuk karakter James Bond adalah kakak tertua Ian Fleming, Peter, seorang penulis perjalanan dan penjelajah yang bepergian. Tokoh Bond-esque lain yang dianggap diperhitungkan dalam DNA 007 adalah seorang perwira intelijen Inggris dan kepala stasiun MI6 di Paris - diberi poin enam di atas, kita beruntung agen rahasia terbesar Inggris tidak memperkenalkan dirinya sebagai "Dunderdale ... Wilfred" Biffy " Dunderdale. "
Daging Sapi Bond
Sangat jarang melihat James Bond makan seperti melihat Jack Bauer memiliki wee, tapi Ian Fleming memerinci banyak kebiasaan makan 007 di buku-bukunya. Makanan favorit Bond ketika sedang bebas tugas termasuk grilled sole, oeufs en cocotte (telur dan crème fraîche untuk Anda dan saya) dan daging sapi panggang dingin dengan salad kentang. Kami yakin dia akan menyingkirkan lebih dari beberapa Maccy Ds di jalan.
Temui Jimmy Bond
Sean Connery bukan aktor pertama yang memerankan James Bond, dan bukan, bukan juga Blockbuster yang menjadi tuan rumah Bob Holness. Orang pertama yang pernah mewujudkan 007 adalah aktor Amerika Barry Nelson, yang bermain kartu hiu 'Jimmy Bond' dalam adaptasi yang mengerikan dari Casino Royale untuk TV AS. Nelson melanjutkan untuk memainkan manajer Overlook Hotel di The Shining.
Hanya Untuk Ukuran Anda
Mungkin saja James Bond yang kita kenal dan cintai berutang popularitasnya pada leprechaun: produser Albert R. Broccoli mempekerjakan Sean Connery untuk Dr. No setelah melihatnya di film Disney Darby O'Gill And The Little People. Pikir itu aneh? George Lazenby mendapat pekerjaan itu setelah ditemukan di iklan untuk Fry's Chocolate Cream.
Seorang petualang lincah dan tidak salah, James Bond telah melakukan lebih dari bagian yang adil dari meniup jauh stereotip bahwa Brits adalah pecinta yang tidak adayang. Tempat-tempat di mana 007 telah 'mencoba masuk kembali' termasuk kereta api, pesawat, hutan, kandang, gunung es bermotor (jelas), rumah sakit, kapal selam, perahu dan pesawat ulang-alik. Apa pun yang diperlukan untuk membuat Inggris berakhir, bung.
Peringkat dan File
Meskipun pangkat militernya tidak pernah secara eksplisit diperinci dalam film-film, James Bond menjabat sebagai Komandan di Angkatan Laut Kerajaan (dia disebut seperti dalam A View To A Kill dan GoldenEye) sebelum ia mulai bekerja untuk Dinas Rahasia Inggris. Ketika Bond memalsukan kematiannya di You Only Live Twice, 'pemakamannya' terlihat sangat mirip dengan penguburan Angkatan Laut di laut.
Finally got around to trying one of Edward S. Aarons' Sam Durell books. From 1956, ASSIGNMENT - SUICIDE is really neat stuff, a grim story of an American spy sent into the Soviet Union in the tense days of the Cold War to prevent a imminent outbreak of World War III. I have a stack of Sam Durell books which I picked up at yard sales and flea markets over the years and stuck away for later, and now I definitely want to check more of them out. Edward S. Aarons (1916-1975) started out as a pulp writer. He had a story in the first issue of THE AVENGER magazine and he wrote "The Totem Pole Murders" for the July 1941 issue of ANGEL DETECTIVE, featuring the Angel (an imitation Saint, also a costumed superhero for Timely Comics). Writing usually as Edward S. Ronns, he soon moved up to the goal of most pulp authors having actual books published. After turning out many mysteries in the 1940s, he created Sam Durrell in 1955. For longevity and popularity alone, the Sam Durrell stories are pretty impressive. There were fifty books by the time of Aarons' death and more books followed, written by "Will B. Aarons" (evidently a house name, please tell me it wasn't Ron Goulart). The books all are titled ASSIGNMENT THIS and ASSIGNMENT THAT. The parallels between Sam Durell and James Bond are startling, considering that I doubt Aarons was basing his character on Ian Fleming's. CASINO ROYALE was published in 1954 and from most accounts was not an awesome smash; in fact, the Bond books were only mildly successful at first. The first Sam Durell book, ASSIGNMENT TO DISASTER, came out in 1955, so while it's possible Aarons was inspired by Fleming, it's just as likely that he was a fine storyteller tapping into the mood of the times. Both spies are skilled gamblers (Durell made a living at it), both belong to a mythical enforcement department* of a real government agency (instead of the 00 section of MI 6, Durell works for the CIA's K Section) both answer only to a crusty older superior (Bond to an ex-admiral, Durell to General McFee). And Bond and Durell are both powerful six-footers with thick black hair and dark blue/grey eyes, attractive to women and rough on their enemies. Durell isn't a Scot, though, he's Cajun. ASSIGNMENT - SUICIDE is amazingly suspenseful and readable. Durell is sent to parachute by night into Russia itself, posing as a lieutenant in the MVD secret police. In only a few days, a mysterIous character known only as "Z" is going to cause the launching of the first intercontinental ballistic missile, raising a mushroom cloud over an American city. In the retaliation and global war which will follow, Z intends to set himself up as the new Stalin. This is a seriously scary prospect. It's hard for kids in school today to realize that for half a century, two immense superpowers glared at each other and kept nuclear arsenals ready to turn the Earth into something that would look like the Moon. The dread and feeling of imminent doom Americans felt in the darker days of the Cold War gave much of our pop culture back then its distinctive undertones. In Leningrad, Durell finds his contact, an old friend he knew back in the OSS, is dying and only hangs on long enough to offer some suggestions. He also gives our hero a priceless map showing the location of Russian missile bases, a nice bargaining chip in the desperate gambits ahead. Teamed up with a beautiful female member of the Russian underground trying to overthrow the Communist government (WAS there such an underground?) our ragin' Cajun is on the run almost from the moment he parachutes down; he literally cannot trust anyone and the odds against survival, let alone success, are enormous. Between the secret police right on his heels and having to deal with the Russian underground (which has some goals in common with Durell but no love for American assassins sneaking into their country), our hero has more than enough to do. Although ASSIGNMENT - SUICIDE is pretty believable and plausible (well, by thriller standards, admittedly a bit flexible), there are a few moments where Aarons tests your suspension of disbelief. Racing through Moscow streets with the MVD almost close enough to grab him by the collar, Sam Durell just happens to encounter a Dixieland band playing on the sidewalk, led amazingly enough by Johnny McPad, a man he had known back in New Orleans; and of course, this musician visiting behind the Iron Curtain is more than eager to block pursuit by the authorities and cover Durell's escape, and then take a complicated message to the American Embassy. Ow! My leg... something just pulled it. Aarons has a clear, vivid style that gives us just enough information about what the characers are thinking that we can speculate as the action goes on. He has a master's skill at describing scenery and setting the stage; I could always visualize what the locations looked like and where the characters were going, but Aarons doesn't slow things down with long travelogue material. The secondary characters are recognizable people, not just the bit part players with goofy names we usually find in spy thrillers. They are complex enough to surprise you, too, without their actions seeming forced. Durell himself is tough and resourceful enough, but he's not a heartless slaughter machine. He's a relatively normal guy doing a nerve wracking job, and the fact that he remains decent and likeable is to his credit and the author's. And the slow development of his rellationship with Valya, the Russian freedom fighter, believably moves from grudging hostility to trust to early romance in a believable way. Her touching fate is a real twist at the very end (and thank you, Edward Aarons, for not giving us yet another girlfriend senselessly killed so that the hero can go berserk as he was going to do anyway). *At least, we are supposed to THINK these are fictional departments. _
[US] Casino Royale (2006) - Daniel Craig stars in this reboot to the 007 franchise, based on Ian Fleming's first Bond novel. Bond takes on his first mission, in which he faces a mysterious private banker to world terrorism (Mads Mikkelsen) in a high stakes poker game at the Casino Royale.
TIL In the mid 2000s, Quentin Tarantino expressed interest in directing Casino Royale, the 2006 film adaptation of Ian Fleming's debut novel and the debut of James Bond. Tarantino said he would have set it in the 1960s and would have only made it with Pierce Brosnan returning as Bond.
A 22 year old Henry Cavill screen testing as Ian Fleming's James Bond 007 for Casino Royale in 2005. He was Craig's runner up (as well as Director Martin Campbell's favored choice) and would have been 23 in the film had he been cast!
The name of the 2006 movie Casino Royale, “Casino Royale,” is a reference to the Ian Fleming book Casino Royale, which is also named “Casino Royale.” An obscure easter egg only the smartest viewers would notice!
