James Bond (Roger Moore) wears a Seiko 7A28-7020 Quartz Chronograph watch, model nr SPR007, in A View To A Kill (1985). The watch can be briefly spotted in the pre-title sequence when Bond is getting comfortable in the submarine after the intense ski chase.

In a small continuity error, Bond actually seems to wear a completely different watch during the ski chase, seen only briefly and partly when he digs up the body of 003. That watch is a black with rubber band and some metal, it could very well be the Seiko H558-5000 that he wears later in the film.

It looks like Bond is also wearing the watch in the final San Francisco scenes, best spotted when he carries Stacey Sutton (Tanya Roberts) from the fire ladder and when he drives the fire truck.

The Seiko 7A28-7020 has a white dial, three subdials and steel case and steel bracelet. Note that a similar model is available with day-date (7A38), but Bond wears the one without the day-date. The same model can still be found, also in gold, on eBay.

Bond wears quite a special watch. The 7A28 movement was the first analog quartz chronograph (all quartz chronographs were digital up to that point). Note that there are more Seiko watches that feature that movement. This silver/white 7A28-7020 model is much harder to find than the black or gold versions.

In the end credits, "Seiko Time (UK) Ltd" is mentioned as a partner.

Roger Moore wore many Seiko watches in his Bond films, mostly digital watches like the Seiko 0674 LC (The Spy Who Loved Me), Seiko M354 (Moonraker), Seiko G757 5020 and Seiko TV Watch (Octopussy), or the Analogue/Digital Seiko H357 5040 and the Seiko 7549-7009 in For Your Eyes Only, and in A View To A Kill he wears a Seiko H558-5000.
