    First Breitling in a movie?

    I was watching GI Jane and came across this. Looks like a Jupiter to me. Anybody else?





    I think this was around 1997

    1973. Carry on film. The first would be Thunderball in 1965 ?

    I don't know if you want to count TV, but apparently in an episode of The Avengers, a Navitimer was worn.

    Then in Fathom, a 1967 film, Raquel Welch wore a Top Time.

    For the record, I haven't seen any of those movies. I think the oldest movie I've seen with a Breitling in it is Point Break, where Swayze wore a Pluton.

    Even a broken watch shows correct time once or twice a day. I ought to know, I have a few!

    A modded Breitling Top Time was actually one of the watches worn by Bond himself in Thunderball...

    Oh, no, I missed that it had a Breitling in it. I've seen Thunderball a hundred times. It was my brother's favorite Bond movie growing up (mine was and still is The Living Daylights).

    Dalton never got enough credit. He was one of my favorites.

    Agreed. And I hear he's more like the Bond described in the books.
