Hello everybody,
before turning over to the actual subject, I introduce myself as the new guy here: I'm 22 years old, German (Düsseldorf), and I have nearly no knowledge about watches, but I'm interested in learning something new.
I am a passionate James Bond fan (or maybe even a nerd), and I noticed that every single watch of James Bond has been identified, but no one really cares about the watches of the villains, henchmen and other characters, but I'm sure there might be some interesting models to find, as these were most probably watches selected by a costume designer.
Anyway, here are the watches of six villains I managed to get pictures from so far:

Max Zorin - "A View to a Kill", 1985


Ernst Stavro Blofeld - "Diamonds are Forever", 1971


Auric Goldfinger - "Goldfinger", 1964


Dr. Kananga - "Live and let Die", 1973


Franz Sanchez - "Licence to Kill", 1989


Francisco Scaramanga - "The Man with the golden Gun", 1974

Don't listen to Balad, he is drunk most of the time :)

Thank you guys, it seems this is the right place to look for these watches. Would it be okay if I post some other watches from the 007-movies, there are quite more?

Thanks for the welcome and the response, but I found that page before, most of the villain's watches aren't listed there, as the main focus is on Bond's watches.

I stand corrected. You have quite some labour ahead of you. :D

I'm afraid, it is not that easy - the Swatch collection was made a few years ago, based on the characters, they had different watches in the movies.
In a few days, I shall be ready to post the remaining main villains and other characters as well.

It was meant as a joke ;)

Oh, I'm sorry :D
I hope you don't see me now as somebody without a sense of humour, but - for my defence - it is difficult to detect jokes when they are submitted via text only :D

Observation: today's watches are so much BIGGER! :D I'm having a tough time identifying them BTW. I think I see an Ebel and a King Midas.
