A Brietling Top Time worn by James Bond in the film Thunderball has been sold at Christie's for £100,000. It was the first watch modified by Q's team and was used underwater when looking for
stolen atomic weapons. Originally manufactured by Brietling in 1962 it was the only one modified in this way and "vanished" from Pinewood studios after the film was made.
It was subsequently bought at a car boot sale for £25.
