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.

Note the position of the bezel, and the ill-fitted regimental strap.

Watch-Spotting: Lost in Translation

It’s hard to believe that Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation was released some ten years ago. This horophile recently sat down to watch the film for a second time, and found that it hasn’t lost an iota of the charm that it had, when it first premiered in 2003. In fact, this editor can now better relate to the film but the real reason you’re reading about this film now is because an iconic watch has been spotted on one of the lead’s wrists.

Director Sofia Coppola only wanted Bill Murray for the male lead role.
