1955 - 1958
Author, Ian Fleming never mentioned a specific model of Rolex in his books; however it was ultimately a 6538 Submariner that was on actor Sean Connery’s wrist during the 1962 film, Dr. No. As the reference 6538 was the first watch to be used in a James Bond film, it will forever be known as the original "James Bond" Submariner. The "James Bond" nickname often gets incorrectly used to describe other big-crown Submariners, or other vintage references that lack the addition of crown guards; however it is actually only the reference 6538 that has the distinction of being called the original "James Bond" Submariner.
