Speake-Marin

Bond Lifestyle already reposted a photo of a Speake-Marin photoshoot on Facebook in October 2014, but the relationship was officially announced this month.

The former James Bond actor will promote watch brand Speake-Marin for the next three years.

Pierce Brosnan and Peter Speake-Marin met on a movie set and became good friends. "I met Peter on the set of a film in which he was a consultant for a character who was a watchmaker. We spoke briefly; we both love what we do, and myself as a lover of watches I appreciated his genuine passion and subsequent designs. I acquired one of his time pieces and a dialogue ensued. When Peter asked me to be an ambassador for his work it was a simple answer." Pierce Brosnan explains.

Kia Sorento

Pierce Brosnan also stars in a new commercial for the Kia Sorento, in which he thinks he will reprise his role as a secret agent. The 60 second version of the commercial will be shown during the Superbowl XLIX.

In the commercial we see a well-dressed Pierce Brosnan in conversation with his agent about a concept for a new Kia commercial. It looks like Pierce is wearing the same Speake-Marin watch as in the Speake-Marin photos above, although this is not confirmed and the details are difficult to see.

The Kia Sorento is presented as "The Perfect Getaway Vehicle" and although Brosnan doesn't get to dodge snipers, rockets and exploding cabins, he does end up in Bond-style with a girl. 

Watch the extended Kia commercial below:

Kia is not really a Bond car, although several Kia Optima and Sportage cars were used in SkyFall by the London police during the scene when Silva and his gang (dressed up as policemen) attack M and the minister.

Pierce Brosnan has appeared as a Bond style character in several commercials over the years, including ads for Visa credit cards, Sagres beer and Spar supermarkets.
