Video: Roger Moore's coolest 007 gadgets

Actor Roger Moore, who played suave secret agent James Bond between 1973 and 1985, has died at age 89. His adventures brought us many memorable action scenes and outfits -- and of course, countless cool gadgets.

In his first outing, "Live and Let Die", Roger Moore's Bond employed a shark gun that fired pressurised air pellets to deal with the villainous Dr Kananga.

Where would James Bond be without his trusty watch? In "Live and Let Die", 007's standard issue Rolex Submariner included an electromagnet and a saw for cutting himself from bondage.

Among the vehicles Roger Moore piloted with panache is the Glastron GT-50 speedboat, commandeered during a high-speed chase in "Live and Let Die".

Stunt performer Jerry Comeaux jumped the speedboat a record 110 feet (34 meters).

In "The Man With The Golden Gun", Roger Moore's Bond impersonates his nemesis Francisco Scaramanga by donning a particular gadget made specially by equipment specialist Q: a stick-on third nipple.

Fiendish hit man Scaramanga's arsenal of gadgets included his trademark single-shot golden gun built from a pen, cigarette case, lighter and cuff link.

Roger Moore raised a trademark arched eyebrow as Christopher Lee's Scaramanga swapped his golden gun for a bigger one, powered by the golden light of the sun.

In 1977's "The Spy Who Loved Me", Roger Moore's 007 switched to a Seiko Quartz watch that had a built-in telex teleprinter for urgent messages from M.

The most iconic gadget of Roger Moore's tenure -- and perhaps the entire Bond series -- is the Lotus Esprit submarine seen in "The Spy Who Loved Me".

A miniature of the Lotus Espirit S1 that sprouted fins and took to the water in "The Spy Who Loved Me". The model appeared in a 2012 London exhibit marking 50 years of Bondian vehicles.

The Esprit was nicknamed "Wet Nellie", a reference to a mini-helicopter called "Little Nellie" seen in an earlier film.

Roger Moore rode the Spirit Marine Wetbike prototype in "The Spy Who Loved Me".

"Moonraker" saw Roger Moore don a spacesuit and use a laser pistol, which fans will remember fondly from the video game GoldenEye years later.

The Seiko watch had a rather short fuse in "Moonraker". 007 also employed a wrist-worn dart gun to deal with the villainous Hugo Drax.

Roger Moore turned heads in his "Bondola" in 1979's "Moonraker".

"For Your Eyes Only" was a deliberately grittier outing for Roger Moore. That meant fewer gadgets -- although Bond and Q did use a computer system called the Identigraph to build up a picture of a mysterious assassin.

"For Your Eyes Only" revolved around one particular gadget: the ATAC, a targeting computer for Britain's nuclear missiles.

Sometimes the only kit Roger Moore's Bond needed was his signature Walther PPK pistol.

Roger Moore was back in a Lotus Esprit in "For Your Eyes Only".

This Lotus Esprit Turbo had a rather more explosive secret power than its predecessor: it blew up when a henchman tried to break in.

Bond "borrowed" this Renault 11 from outside the Eiffel Tower -- and proceeded to chop bits off it as he pursued the villainous May Day in "View to a Kill".

Lucky the Renault 11 had front-wheel-drive.
