A Licence To Kill

A Rolex Submariner worn by 007 could fetch a whopping £90,000 at auction. The magnificent timepiece - worn by Timothy Dalton’s stunt double during the British spy thriller, Licence to Kill,
in 1989 – is estimated at £60,000 - £90,000 in the upcoming Watch Sale on Tuesday 30th October.

The Rolex featured in a memorable scene - a car chase where 007 is driving a tanker truck in Mexico. Shot almost entirely in Mexico and the US, Licence to Kill pits Britain’s favourite spy against a fierce drug lord.

The watch comes with photos of the cast and crew on set in Mexico, as well as paperwork from Rolex. There is also a book detailing the making of the movie, a soundtrack album, and a certificate of authenticity from EON Productions (the film company).

Licence to Kill was Timothy Dalton’s final appearance as 007 in the franchise, before Pierce Brosnan took over the role as the famous British spy.

For any press related enquiries please contact Liam Bolland on liam@fellows.co.uk or 0121 212 2131.

23rd October 2018 12pm - 7pm | London
27th October 2018 11am - 4pm | Birmingham

Additional information on provenance

• Filming of this scene in Licence to Kill took place at two locations in Mexico. Timothy Dalton was in one location wearing the Submariner 16610 which can be seen in the film.

Rodney Pincott (Stand-by propman 2nd unit) was in the second location with the stunt doubles.

• Because the stunt double needed to wear a watch during the scene, Pincott’s own watch was used. Pincott’s watch was very similar to the 16610 worn by Timothy Dalton in the film - apart from the date which is not displayed. It is Pincott’s Rolex Submariner 5513 that is being offered for sale.

• The watch was badly damaged during the filming of the tanker scene and was sent to Rolex for a full service. We have the service paperwork, showing the correct serial reference, to prove this. We also have all of the original parts that Rolex replaced. Rolex performed the service free of charge.
