The Swiss made fake Rolex Submariner Ref. 5513 has become a legendary Bond watch. I mentioned it shortly in when discussing George Lazenby and his Rolex Chronograph ref. 6238. It was actually the first time that the Submariner Ref. 5513 could be seen in a Bond film. After that, the watch can be seen on Roger Moore’s wrist in Live and Let Die and The Man with the Golden Gun.
Especially the scenes with the perfect replica Submariner in Live and Let Die have become legendary with Bond fans. After Bond swaps his Pulsar P2 for his trusted Submariner, you can see him use it as a magnet. First jokingly, when Bond uses it to have M’s teaspoon get stuck to the watch and when opening the zipper of Italian agent Caruso’s dress. Later on, however, the magnetic properties get him out of trouble when Bond is tied up.
But perhaps the most celebrated scene of them all is when the Submariner turns out to be a circular saw that helps Bond cut through ropes to free himself. That one scene alone would have been enough to put the Submariner Ref. 5513 on this list. But the Bond story of the Submariner Ref. 5513 is much greater than just that one scene, and it has made it one of the most iconic Bond watches ever.
