"Ingenious and useful too" - Sean Connery as James Bond 007
The transmitting devices, or ‘homers’ as they are referred to on screen, are Q-Branch creations issued to James Bond, Agent 007 as part of his field equipment in 1964’s Goldfinger.
The smaller device was standard field issue for all agents. Its larger brother was designed to track vehicles from a receiver built into the dashboard of Bond’s iconic Aston Martin DB5, with an effective range of 150 miles.
The larger homer was used to track Auric Goldfinger’s Rolls Royce Phantom 337 to his smuggling facility in Switzerland after Bond managed to secretly place it in the rear luggage compartment.
After being captured by Goldfinger and flown to the USA, Bond activated the smaller homer and concealed it in a special compartment in the heel of his shoe while on en-route. This alerted the CIA and MI6 to Bond’s location and allowed them to keep Goldfinger under close surveillance, eventually foiling his plot to irradiate the gold in Fort Knox.
Today, with the advent of GPS technology and commonplace tracking software it is easy to underestimate just how advanced and futuristic the homers seemed to 1960’s audiences. They were literally ‘out of this world’ at that time and helped to cement incredible gadgets as part of Bond’s essential arsenal.
The Factory Entertainment ‘Goldfinger Tracking device’ prop replicas were created after exhaustive and careful study of material in the EON Productions archives, including detailed technical specs and production drawings and consultation with crew members who worked on the film to ensure maximum accuracy.
This set includes two homers:
