007's Rolex Submariner. The James Bond series established from the start that if you're a world-class secret agent, only the best will do. From the series' first film, Dr. No in 1962, Bond wore a Rolex Submariner. As the series progressed, the Rolex had many other functions, as well: laser beam cutter, saw, poison dart gun, etc. Designed as a diving watch by Rolex in 1954, it was largely used by military personnel until it was popularized by the Bond films.

It remains Rolex's top-selling model to this day.
