Philips Philishave Sensotec HQ8894 Electric Razor
James Bond's razor choice in Die Another Day (2002) is a rechargeable Philips Philishave Sensotec HQ8894 shaver. In North Ameria this shaver is marketed as the Norelco Spectra 8894XL.
Bond uses the shaver in The Rubyeon Royale Hotel in Hong Kong to shave off 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. In the US versions of the film, the packaging features a Norelco logo (see screenshots on the left).
The Philishave / Norelco features a sleek design with 3 individually floating heads adjustable to your skin type.
In the USA, a special James Bond model of the Norelco 8894XL was sold, model number 8895XL, for $249. Find Norelco 8894 on eBay.
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 cream) 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.
