James Bond Attaché Case - Dr. No Edition - By Globe-Trotter
This is made to order, please allow 3 months for delivery.
The James Bond Attaché Case - Dr. No Edition is an homage to the first 007 film, Dr. No. Synonymous with great British design, Globe-Trotter's handmade luggage and leather collections are a timeless and elegant expression of craftsmanship. The attaché has a contemporary slimline silhouette finished with premium details.
Backstory. Designed by Maurice Binder, the Dr. No title sequence is a modernist vision: his titles create the visual elements that became icons of popular culture. The coloured dots change colour, position and form patterns at the same high tempo as the score and are just one element of a hugely influential sequence.
Details. This is an attaché case in a navy. Each case comes with a specially designed leather patch featuring the original 007 logo from 1962, and even smallest features within the suitcases has been customised including the leather trim of the straps and eyelets, featuring custom-dyed leather matching the Dr. No coloured dots. The case is made from a vulcanised fibreboard with black leather trims, corners and handle, and comes complete with a fabric-lined interior and internal removable folio with leather details to hold pens and documents. The attaché has key-operated locks for security, and a pair of metal ‘arms’ stops the lid from closing when it is open. Hardware is polished silver metal and the case has a lock fastening with keys. The case has a special edition leather luggage tag, with the front side inset with vulcanised fibreboard featuring the Dr. No coloured dots, while the back has the original 007 logo embossed on the leather surface.
Dimensions.W41cm, H35cm, D12cm including handles. 15l capacity and 2kg weight
The makers. Established in 1897, Globe-Trotter suitcases and travel accessories are handcrafted in Hertfordshire, England by highly skilled artisans using original manufacturing methods and machinery that date back to the Victorian era. The 007 cases are made to order from panels of vulcanised fibreboard: a unique material invented in Britain during the 1850s that is as strong as leather and as light as aluminium. Each sheet is moulded into shape using a method patented by the company in 1901, while the case’s black leather corners are moulded on Victorian press machines over a period of five days to ensure optimum strength and form.
