Sean Connery and Ursula Andress on the set of the first official James Bond movie “Dr. No” in 1962.

This mint men’s 1960 automatic in solid stainless steel is a clear example of the brilliance of Bulova: Measuring an impressive 42mm lug-to-lug and 34mm in diameter, it features a rare slotted bezel framed by beefy “Vegas” lugs and highlighted by an original linen dial in platinum finish. Fully and professionally cleaned, oiled and calibrated to keep time as intended, this watch has that “Steve McQueen” wrist appeal that is so sought-after today.

Cheers to Sir Michael Caine, who celebrated his 87th birthday on Saturday.

Lesley Lawson, better known as “Twiggy,” was a widely popular English model in the mid 1960s.
