Whether it’s for signing your bill at the bar after a few dry martinis (shaken, not stirred) or jotting down digits after hitting it off with a hostie, the Parker Jotter is surely the only pen that says “baller” with a ballpoint. The Parker Jotter has been a best seller for over 50 years. James Bond was aware of the allure of this classic stationery item when he used in it Golden Eye – although his model did double as a C4 grenade.
ZERO Halliburton Attaché
In Quantum of Solace, the ZERO Halliburton Attaché was the vessel by which the most secret and vital items were transported and kept safe. Not just effective but ultra-elite and uber-appealing, this is the true Bond Briefcase.

Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Chronometer
You might recognise this ever-so-stylish wristwatch from the Skyfall movie posters advertising the newest Bond film. It features a chronometer, a screw in crown, a transparent case back and tells you the date, of course.
With 41.5mm steel case and anti-reflective scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, it’s the kind of watch that screams status and style. It’s the watch that other watches want to be. It’s also water resistant up to 500 feet, so it’s travel and adventure appropriate.
Binocktails Camera Flask
It would be Bond without a little clever disguise and the opportunity for a martini on the run, so there may be no gadget more quintessentially Bond than the Binocktails Camera Flask. This nifty little gadget may look like a simple, unassuming digital camera for the casual traveller, but a secret lies behind its sneaky lens; it is, in fact, a 5 ounce flask, ready to hold enough vermouth for a few dry martinis, on the go.
