Found this picture of Lionel (Buster) Crabb in dive gear in todays Daily Mail (see the link below), can anyone identify the watch? It looks like a Rolex Explorer 6610? There's lots of info on Lionel Crabb to be found on the internet but nothing I can find about his watches and the fact he was used by Ian Fleming as inspiration for Bond, especially in Thunderball and the picture (mid 50's) clearly shows the watch on a strap and the line in OHMSS (the book) describing a Rolex that sounds like an Explorer. This picture and Flemings knowledge of 'the Crabb Affair' could be the link in what watch Bond should be wearing (and its not a Sub),
