Philips Philishave Sensotec HQ8894 Electric Razor
James Bond's razor choice in Die Another Day (2002) is a rechargeable Philips Philishave Sensotec HQ8894 shaver. Bond uses the shaver in The Rubyeon Royale Hotel in Hong Kong to shave of the beard he has acquired during his 14-month imprisonment in North-Korea.
In one camera shot of Bond's presidential suite we see a round, transparent packaging with the Philishave logo printed on it, next to a cooler with Bollinger champagne and brand new white and blue Brioni shirts and suits.
The Philishave Sensotec features a sleek design with 3 individually floating heads adjustable to your skin type.
In North Ameria this shaver is marketed as the Norelco Spectra 8894XL. A special James Bond model of the 8894XL was sold in the US, model number 8895XL, for $249.
In the abanonded tube station in London, where Bond meets M and Q, we can spot two vintage Philishave advertisements on the wall (see screenshots).
The shaver is not the only Philips machine in Die Another Day: in the medical examination room on the ship where MI6 keeps an eye on Bond's health, a Philips Intellivue MP60 Patient Monitor is used to measure Bond's heart rate.
In the end credits, Philips Medical Systems is mentioned as a supplier of products.
Other times we see Bond shave include the movies Goldfinger (Gillette razor), Live and Let Die (Schick razor) and SkyFall (razor, brush, wooden bowl). In the movie A View To A Kill, James Bond (Roger Moore) also uses a Philishave 1335 shaver updated by Q-division as a bug detector in his room in Château de Chantilly.
