Modem Burner: The Many Watches of Pierce Brosnan
Modems seem to represent the time when Pierce Brosnan was at the peak of his career.
I must be watching too many Brosnan movies. I got to admit, this Irishman is my favourite Bond, for unknown reasons. I should be liking Daniel Craig or Sean Connery more, but I gravitate towards the Brosnan era Bond films a lot.
(Maybe, he is the most rakish of the Bonds. A mix of ornate styling, fitness and a debonair air, AND dishing out innuendos to women in his movies without looking like a creep/predator which sometimes Roger Moore or even Sean Connery could fail at) How does he do it?
Therefore I will write today of the watches worn by this well-known actor.
Most are identified. Some are not. Can you identify those unknown ones in the picture? Are there other pieces not featured here?

A short lived period where he was ambassador to Peter Speake-Marin. Brosnan acted as the “watchmaker”, an evil terrorist posing as a watchmaker.
