Wow, that's a cool looking watch. I remember it from the movie.
I suppose you'd remember the fact that it was a Breitling Top Time, but the author of that article really makes a bit of a long shot with claiming similarities between that new Top Time LE and the watch in the film. The Breitling in Thunderball
looked like this:
There was also another Breitling featured in that film, but it was a Navitimer:
...a mid-1960s ref.806, with the abstract "plane" logo (not the older AOPA wings) and small subdials. Featuring that watch made me laugh a bit - Bond takes it off the wrist of the dead impostor in the sunk Avro Vulcan, and on land, the watch looks OK. Normally, it would have had condensation and a shitload of salt residue, as the Navitimer was barely splashproof, and wouldn't withstand that much of a submersion without leaking like a sieve.
