The Seiko 0674 5009 Quartz LC model number DK001 was used by Bond in the 1977 movie The Spy Who Loved Me. On the watch 007 receives a ticker-tape message, rolling out as embossing tape, telling him to report to MI6 Headquarters:

007 TO REPORT HQ. IMMEDIATE M.

James Bond wears the same watch throughout the movie, from the first to the last scene.

007 can be spotted glancing at his Seiko 0674 watch in several moment: in the train compartment when he's hoping agent Triple X will join him; in the scene when he jumps on the golden camera ball in the Liparus ship; and right before he meets Jaws again in the Atlantis in the final scene.

In the closing credits, "Seiko Watches" is mentioned as one of the partners.

This watch is, like all the Seiko's used in Bond movies, quite rare. Beware of sellers on eBay offering similar Seiko models, claiming it to be the Bond watch, but there is only one correct model Seiko 0674 5009, and that is the one pictured here.

You can find similar vintage Seiko Quartz LC digital watches on eBay, try the following search terms: Seiko LC Quartz, 0439-5007A021-50000634-5019, 0624M159-5028, but they are usually not even that much cheaper than the 0674 seen in the film.

Trivia
It looks like a crew member of the St Georges spy ship in the movie For Your Eyes Only also wears a Seiko 0674. The person who seems to wear the watch is the man who takes over de control of the A.T.A.C. on the ship just before the mine hits the ship, the man that just fails to pull the self-destruct handle. The watch can briefly be seen when he puts on the handcuffs attaching himself to the machine.

Seiko released several advertisements and competitions using The Spy Who Loved Me logo and artwork during the release of the film.

If you want to recreate the type of label seen in the movie, you need to make the text on hard plastic, embossing tape. The most famous company making machines that can make these tapes is Dymo (get a Dymo printer on Amazon for $9.99). The hardest part is finding the light grey embossing tape.

Hi,
I own a Seiko 0674-5009 (674336) but I can't seem to find any difference between
mine & the Seiko 0674-5008 that is shown here. Is there a difference?

oooh what timepiece. I could STILL wear that with jeans and a dress shirt. Hey but wasn't "Spy" circa 1977? Did we spy this one in Man with the Golden Gun?

logan5, thanks for your message, you are right, the year should be 1977, I have corrected this.

I found a 0674-5009. It's in really excellent shape and works perfect. What is the value of such a watch?

OK, Yes, I do own this watch. It needs to be cleaned to work again properly. Unfortunately I drove tractor on a farm while wearing it, and dirt/dust must have collected under the front 2 buttons, cause they don't want to work right. And it needs a battery! What battery number should I get? How much is the watch worth in US $ ? And is there a big demand for the watch? I might be willing to sell for the right amount!

That was supposed to be ticker-tape? Always looked more like a Dymo label popping out of it, to me!
I thought the same thing. It looks like a DYMO tape they painted silver. The characters definitely look embossed. I'm searching the Googles to find out info about the prop.
Hi I just bought this watch for my boyfriend for Christmas. He already own a lotus esprit from this movie so now he needs a watch. Now I need to find a tape to go with a watch. I was thinking to make one on DYMO but I just want to know what exact message was written on it!? Can anyone help me with that? Either tell me where to buy one or tell me the all message. Thank you
@Aggi: I added the complete message, it reads: 007 TO REPORT HQ. IMMEDIATE. M.
