James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) wears Dunhill cufflinks in the 2002 movie Die Another Day.

The cufflinks look like two L-shaped pieces fit together.

These Dunhill cufflinks in Die Another Day can be spotted when Bond gets dressed in the Rubyeon Royale Hotel* in Hong Kong. The scene is filled with product placement: a Philips (or Norelco, read more here) electric shaver, Brioni shirts, Bollinger Champagne in a cooler. The Dunhill cufflinks are more subtle, but they are just visible when Bond reaches for the ashtray (that he throws through the mirror to reveal mr. Chang) and when he takes the gun from the 'masseuse'.

In a promotional photo of Brosnan as Bond in a grey suit with red neck tie the cufflinks are also worn.

Later in the film, when Bond wears his Brioni tuxedo at the Gustav Graves party in the Ice Hotel, Bond wears another pair of cufflinks (of which Bond Lifestyle will reveal the brand soon).

The cufflinks are currently hard to find, and since no product number is known, all you can do is browse all eBay Dunhill cufflinks listings.

James Bond wears Dunhill cufflinks in two other Bond films, first the Dunhill cufflinks in Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), then a few other pairs (modelnumbers unknown) in The World Is Not Enough (1999) including these ones.

When Daniel Craig takes over the part of Bond in Casino Royale (2006), he wears S.T. Dupont 5244, and 5172 and 5174 cufflinks, and in SkyFall (2012) and SPECTRE (2015), he wears Tom Ford cufflinks.

More Dunhill
Dunhill as a brand is also mentioned in some of the Ian Fleming novels From Russia With Love (Dunhill Gold Lighter found on a dead body) and You Only Live Twice (Tiger Tanaka uses a Dunhill filter holder). There are a few Dunhill lighters in the films as well: a silver Dunhill Unique Lighter is given to Bond in Licence To Kill and Bond uses an 'explosive' gold Dunhill Unique Lighter in Tomorrow Never Dies.

* The name Rubyeon Royale Hotel is a reference to the 40th anniversary, sometimes reffered to as a Ruby anniversary, of the Bond films, and the Bond production company "EON".

Comments

The Dunhill cufflinks are not two 'L's but rather two sytlised 'd's (for Dunhill) May help when browsing trying to find a pair.
I'm a bit biased because I enjoy wearing their suits, but I would like to see Alfred Dunhill take over from Tom Ford as Bond's suit of choice in the next movie.
