Bond Villain: Dr. Julius No
Played by: Julius Wiseman, 1962
The first Bond film featured the nefarious, ever elegant Dr. No, the “SPECTRE” agent played by Julius Wiseman who dies sinking into the bubbling vat of a nuclear reactor.
Dr. No and the reactor find a suitably elegant tribute in the form of this distinctive Skin Chrono: its textured white and pale beige synthetic fabric strap evokes Dr. No’s high-collared suit, and the dial recalls the reactor’s instrument panel.
The milky plastic case has a black plastic crown and pushers and frames the sunbrushed light beige dial. The applique silver “instrument panel” is framed by a broad black ring with red hour markers and white minute indices and holds the silver legend “DANGER LEVEL” embossed against a black ground.
Applique silver Arabic numerals indicate hours 4 and 8 and a delta sign is positioned to mark hour 12. Set within the black band are the two chrono counters, each with black numerals and black hands set off by a white dial, and the continuous seconds counter at 6 o’clock.
The latter has a white dial with a red dot at the centre, black Arabic numerals and a black hand, and carries the label “HIGH VOLTAGE” printed above it on the lightly patterned pale beige central zone. Squelette metal hour and minute hands mark the time.
