The 20 Most Iconic Watches on Film

If there's one accessory we're allowed to obsess over, it's the watch. It's not just about whether it's digital or analogue, or if you prefer a metal to a leather strap, or even if it's a Rolex or Tag. It goes much deeper than that. The timepiece you choose to adorn your wrist with says a lot about your lifestyle choices, how much you spend, possibly your family history and even your personality.

For those reasons, in the fictional world it's just as important to get it right. For Bond, wearing an obscenely flashy wristwatch is arguably as vital to the storyline as his dalliance with a femme fatale. Equally, the added detail of Marty McFly's Casio makes him that much more believable as a teenager of the 80s, and adds to his status as a retro style icon.

Here, we've picked out some of the most memorable watches as seen on screen. Tell us if you think we've missed any out in the comments below.
