The watch is accompanied by a special presentation case (designed after a military medal case), naval style pin, stainless steel bracelet, strap changing tool as well as a reproduction naval uniform to the same specification that Sean Connery wore in, "You Only Live Twice."

Commander Bond’s Naval Uniform, You Only Live Twice, 1967
Oscar® winning costume designer Lindy Hemming supervised the reproduction of James Bond’s two piece naval uniform including Commander’s peak cap. It was tailored by Academy Costumes in London to Sean Connery’s measurements. Connery portraying James Bond is seen wearing a naval uniform for the first and only time in You Only Live Twice, 1967. The inside label has been signed in gold pen by Bond Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.

Proceeds from the sale of this timepiece will go to UNICEF, the United Nations Mine Action Service, and a number of charitable organizations.
