Rolex, Omega… Pulsar? New James Bond Watch Exhibit at NAWCC Focuses on the Quartz Era

"James Bond Wore the Quartz Revolution," which opens on June 3 at NAWCC, is curated by James Bond expert, founder of, and occasional WatchTime contributor Dell Deaton. The exhibit marks the first time that "screen-correct" models of all 12 quartz wristwatches worn in the James Bond films — from the period spanning 1973 through 1995 — will be assembled side by side and in running condition. Through the pop culture icon of James Bond, Deaton hopes to use the exhibit to "correct myths arguing that the Quartz Revolution was nothing more than about making watches cheaper."
