Neither does dressing like the spy, who was created by novelist Ian Fleming in 1953, come cheap. He wears Italian suits and, while visiting the Alps, sports a knitted sleeve bomber jacket and stirrup trousers designed by Tom Ford, costing $3,820.
No spy would be complete without their accessories. Bond favors the Xperia Z5 smartphone in "Spectre", which retails at around $840, and wears an OMEGA Seamaster 300 (worth around $6,000) on his wrist.
According to the novels, Bond lives in an apartment off the King's Road in Chelsea, an expensive part of West London. Searching for a one-bedroom apartment on the property website Foxtons reveals the average cost would be around £800,000 ($1,223,000).

In total, you'd need almost $1,500,000 to live like James Bond (not including the cost of regularly drinking Vodka Martinis). But how much is Bond earning as a member of the British civil service?
"After some debate in the FCO press office we think Bond most approximates to a D7 salary (that at least is the level a colonel would be in the Ministry of Defence)," a spokesperson for the U.K. Foreign and Commonwealth Office told CNBC. "Of course, Bond's job doesn't really exist so it's impossible to really say!"
That means Bond may be earning a maximum of £68,539 ($104,800) a year. To pay for his lavish lifestyle, he's either privately wealthy, or the super-spy is massively in debt.
