James Bond's customised Rolex

It isn't just 007 who wears personally tailored watches - now Bond actor Daniel Craig has one too

While, in recent films, the Omega Seamaster has become James Bond's timepiece of choice, diehard fans of the books will remember that007 preferred another brand.

As Ian Fleming wrote, he, "could not just wear a watch. It had to be a Rolex."

Sean Connery wore a Rolex Submariner inthe early films, as did Timothy Dalton in his twooutings as the agent (afterRoger Moore hadsported aSeiko digital watch for his last five appearances).

Andit appears that the latest Bond actor Daniel Craig, like his 007 alter-ego, also likes Rolexs.

To mark this, Craig's Rolex Submariner has been specially customised by ProjectX Designs, a companywhich specialises in creating unique and limited edition versions of top range watches.

Other fans of customised Rolexes include Kanye West andJenson Button's Formula One Championship-winningBrawn F1 Racing Team.

Previously, Craig hasalso been spotted wearing a Rolex Oyster Perpetual.

Of course, that's not to say that Craig doesn't like Omega watches. He used to own an Omega De Ville Co-axial Rattrapante which he auctioned for $30,000, in 2008.

PX Designsis currently working on a watch for fellow Bond actor Roger Moore as well. Although it isn't known whether his or Craig's watches fire darts or grappling wires.
