It’s no secret that a lot of dads love Bond. Father of two, and the incumbent CIA agent Felix Leiter, Jeffrey Wright, recently doubled-down on his Bond fandom saying “The way this thing [Bond] has been managed over time is unique.” And he’s not alone in this assessment. Dads all over the world have found something to love about the utterly ridiculously exploits of James Bond, which is probably partially connected to the fact that Bond tells the best Dad Joke puns of all time.
Whether you’re shopping for a last-minute Father’s Day present, just getting a dad a gift for fun, or you’re a guy who wants to treat yourself to some 007 swag, here’s some cool Bond stuff to snag, that might not be on your spy radar.

Very similar to the Submariner style watch worn by Sean Connery in Thunderball, this Timex is the most affordable everyday wristwatch for a guy who wants to feel like Bond, but not look too flashy, either.
You can also snag this watch directly from Timex, right here.
A giant coffee table book filled with stunning black-and-white photos you've never seen. This book focuses mostly on earlier Bonds like Sean Connery and Roger Moore, but Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan make an appearance, too. This book is also BIG.
We wrote about this book when it came out in February 2020, but it really is the definitive history of all the movies. Great for a film nerd dad, or somebody who is curious about little-known behind-the-scenes facts.
James Bond movies are notoriously moving around on the various streaming services. Maybe it's time just buy the entire collection on BluRay.
Omega has been the official legit James Bond watch brand for quite some time. If you feel like shelling out the big bucks, this is the real thing.
The music of Bond all in one place and on vinyl. Essential.
Less expensive than the Omega, but a very classic and Bond-ish design, this Timex is a more straightforward fancy dad watch, but one you can imagine a laser hidden inside of.
This one is kind of a mash-up between a behind-the-scenes book, and a book with cool illustrations and random facts. If you're curious about how the novels connect to the movies, or how the movies were written, this is the book for you. It also looks great sitting on your coffee table or in any man cave.
