Sir Roger Moore’s Personal Collection Is Going Up for Auction

Coming fall, Sir Roger Moore’s personal collection will be going under that hammer at Bonhams. The 180-lot collection comprises rare collectibles, valuable memorabilia as well as the late actor and former James Bond personal ephemera.

Much like the impeccably well-dressed 007 agent he portrayed, a number of iconic timepieces and suits can be discovered in Sir Roger Moore’s soon-to-be-auctioned collection. Estimated to fetch between £20,000 – £30,000 GBP (approximately $25,397 – $38,095 USD), the 50 Years of 007 special edition OMEGA Seamaster is one of the main highlights from the lineup.

Other noteworthy pieces include a triple calendar and moon phase OMEGA Speedmaster, which comes with a special engraving; a mohair double-breasted dinner suit as seen on the Eiffel Tower scene from A View to a Kill; and Sir Roger Moore’s Hollywood Walk of Fame plaque to name a few.

“Sir Roger Moore was a true icon of the silver screen, best known for bringing his natural charm and panache to the role of 007. Bonhams is honored to be offering his personal collection for sale and giving this unique opportunity for Bond fans to get a little closer to the man himself,” says Harvey Cammel, Bonhams’ Global Director in Valuations & Private Collections.

Some of the highlights from the lot can be viewed in the gallery above. Sir Roger Moore’s personal collection will go up for sale at Bonhams’ Bond Street on October 4, 1 p.m. BST. To read more about the upcoming auction, visit Bonham’s official website.
