    Ian Fleming's Rolex

    Hi all, sorry if this is old news, but Ian Fleming's niece claims to have his personal Submariner watch, I wonder if she means the Explorer and has mixed it up or he did actually own a Sub?

    I’m only aware of an Explorer. However that’s not to say he couldn’t have owned a Submariner. Given the recent spate of high value celebrity watch auctions, I would want to see proper verification before I’d consider buying. Then again, who am I kidding? A genuine Fleming owned Rolex is so far out of my budget that it doesn’t really matter.

    Based on what I have read, the Explorer was the only watch he ever wore but of course that could be misinformation.

    I'm guessing she made a mistake.

    I know he had a few different watches, he seemed to favour dials with lots of lume, but he also had several white dial watches
