Buy it
Rothco Trooper Watch
Seen in ‘For Love or Money’. The ‘Trooper’ Military Field watch made by Rothco appears to have been used as a stand-in for the Timex Military watch MacGyver normally wore.
Buy it
Casio DW-1000 digital watch
In the episode Countdown, MacGyver wore this Casio watch which provided him with a countdown function. The watch appears to have had tape placed over the top of the screen to hide the branding name and details.
CHRONOSPORT Navigator
This watch was supplied to MacGyver in the “Nightmares” episode to provide a 6 hour countdown until the serum he was injected with would end his life.
Seiko S23204J Watch
Worn during the 4th season, it seems that the watch-face may have been blacked out to hide the branding of the watch. The metal strap has also been replaced with a black leather strap.
Breitling Callisto Chrono Watch
Worn intermittently during the 5th season. This watch appears to have been a substitute for the Seiko. It’s likely Richard Dean Anderson’s own watch considering that these watches are very expensive and seem outside of MacGyver’s normal range.
Victorinox Swiss Army Watch
In ‘Blind Faith’ and ‘Strictly Business’ we see MacGyver wearing a Swiss Army Watch “original” which has the distinctive red band around the face of the watch.

  4. Hello,

    First of all I’d like to complement you on a wonderful website, full of useful information. You’ve really done an excellent job!

    Secondly, the reason I’m commenting is because I think I can provide you with a little more details on MacGyver’s “Black Tactical Boots”. I recently purchased a pair of Belleville combat boots on eBay and when they arrived I noticed their similarity to the ones you have listed in your wardrobe section. I looked up some more pictures of them on the internet and found one of the 1986 season one episode “To Be a Man”, in which it seems Mac is wearing the same ones I bought: Needless to say I couldn’t believe my luck to have happened upon a pair of real MacGyver boots by accident! You can check out their specs and buy them at [link redacted] . I’m not sure if his are Bellevilles, since Bates and McRae also used to make this model (although the latter brand only in tan and coyote, to my knowledge), but I do know Belleville are the only ones to still manufacture these boots with the Vibram sole, which is the one that’s attached to Mac’s in the picture you used.

    Anyway, I just thought I’d let you know, so you can update your webpage, should my information check out.

    Congratulations again on a wonderful job!

    Pieter Dams
