Watch-spotting: Phil Coulson’s watch on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t what you think it is…

With three seasons already under its belt, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is proving a popular TV show. It stars Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, a senior S.H.I.E.L.D. agent whose team is tasked with dealing with all sorts of interesting scenarios in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’re now two seasons in, and we’d have gotten a lot further if we didn’t get sidetracked by our own mission to identify Coulson’s watch.

Watch-Spotting: The Rolex watches of Goldfinger

We’ve been dodging the heat and humidity of UAE summer this year by grabbing our favorite spot on the sofa, and watching all manner of TV shows and movies. Most recently we fed our trusty Blu-ray player a copy of 1964’s Goldfinger – one of our favorite James Bond films. The enhanced resolution and colors gave us full sight of two very cool Rolex watches – the Rolex Submariner 6538 and Rolex GMT Master 6542.
