"... what makes this one interesting and a rarity,” commented Halifax Mill Auctioneers owner and lead auctioneer James Watson in The Halifax Courier, “is that the watch was physically used for and is on-screen within Pierce Brosnan's 1997 007 classic, Tomorrow Never Dies. The watch features an inscription to its reverse, of 'Tomorrow Never Dies '97', and was a gift from Pierce to the film's main bad guy, Richard Stamper, played by Gotz Otto. The lot features all of the associated provenance and paperwork that you would expect, and has arrived with Halifax Mill from a Lancashire collector, in addition to the gentleman's collection of first edition Ian Fleming Bond classics."

I'm surprised he hasn't lost this. James loses loads of things people consign to him. Trust him as far as you'd throw him.
How has it taken 26 years for this watch model to be identified as having been used in the film? As the movie screenshots above show, it can be clearly seen that Stamper is wearing a Moonwatch. Furthermore, I believe one of the other stealthship guys wears one too.
Probably because it was very brief. Unlike Bond's SMP, it barely got any screen time. We never really saw Stamper's watch until during the climax at the end in the stealth ship. Even so it was very fast and during an action scene in a dimly lit set.
