Do wives encourage their husbands to live out the spy fantasy by buying and wearing the James Bond Seamaster watch?

Who wears the Seamaster?

The average Seamaster wearer was born in October 1972 and is now aged 44.

The Bond actor of his childhood was Roger Moore, but he’s familiar with all the Bond movies due to the films being played repeatedly on Bank Holidays for many decades.

He’s less likely to have children, with only 48% having children compared with average 54% married men who have children.
