251 cases away from fleming's own personal 1016!!!
here is an excerpt from the article Mr deaton wrote on his website Jamesbondwatchesblog.com

"But I must confess that the horological highlight for me was when Justin Valentine introduced himself. His own delightful Bond-girl had accompanied him. Many of you know Justin, as I do, from Rolex Forums— and the Rolex 1016 Explorer wristwatch that he proudly counts among the treasures of his growing collection. Mr Valentine is a custom tattoo artist by trade, working in Baltimore.

Being a special occasion there at the “Bond Enthusiasts Weekend,” he wore that Rolex 1016 Explorer.

Dated to the fourth quarter of 1960 and showing serial number 596600, he regularly refers to the February 2009 WatchTime article where I reveal the story of having discovered the original, literary James Bond watch, and provide specifics on the personal Rolex 1016 owned and worn by 007-creator Ian Fleming. With its original dial both intact and in fantastic condition, the Valentine watch is both virtually identical to the Fleming-Bond watch, and evidence case numbers that put the two watches within hours of each other in original production."

here is the link as well to the article!
