James Bond's (Roger Moore) Hamilton Pulsar watch, an on-set photograph, a wedding telegram and a letter from the production of Guy Hamilton's Bond movie Live and Let Die. This lot was obtained from the collection of the production's prop master Patrick Weymouth, who became close friends with Roger Moore.
Bond sported his Hamilton Pulsar watch near the beginning of the film, when M (Bernard Lee) and Miss Moneypenny (Lois Maxwell) visited his apartment and ordered him to go to New York on a mission to investigate the deaths of three MI6 agents. Bond demonstrated his watch when he pressed the button on the side, which revealed the time "5:48".
The Hamilton Pulsar P2 2900 LED watch is made of stainless steel and features a small display screen, the word "Pulsar" engraved underneath, and an oyster strap with clasp-buckle fastening. A button is located on the right side which, when pressed, once caused the LEDs to illuminate red. The electronics within the watch no longer function.
The lot also includes a photograph taken on set, and a wedding telegram and letter addressed to Patrick Weymouth from Roger Moore. Several minor scratches are present on the metal bezel and the display screen of the watch which also exhibits minor signs of corrosion. The letter displays general wear, multiple fold lines from storage and slight discolouration. The new custodian of this lot will receive a letter of authenticity from a member of Weymouth's family. Dimensions (watch): 9 cm x 4 cm x 2 cm (3 1/2" x 1 1/2" x 3/4"); (letter): 22.5 cm x 17.5 cm (9" x 7"); (telegram): 21 cm x 18.5 cm (8 1/4" x 7 1/4"); (photo): 9 cm x 11 cm (3 1/2" x 4 1/4")
