Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

Taking from this and older Matera pictures, i dont see a date on 6 and instead a darker spot on 3 o`clock,
So my guess is the older Master-AT. And from the size, i would not go with the bigger one.
In lots of shots, it does not look like fullsize but mid size like in Skyfall.

It’s so hard to tell from the pictures but it looks like the 41mm with polished bracelet.  Like he wore in Spectre

I was going to say continuity from Spectre final scene. Then remembered he had the vintage Omega on!

True, but we did see Bond wear the AT 41mm in the Spectre PTS and then again in the end of the film (not Whitehall) so hoping it’s a continuation of the same model. I would find it very aggravating if they switch back to a mid size of the exact same watch from a collectors stand point.

Still think that was more of an Easter Egg, either from Omega or even DC.

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

Indeed.   Technically he still had it when they arrested Blofeld so should be in his suitcase in the back of the Matera bound DB5  ajb007/lol

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

Rewatch Spectre today and still unsure about the size.
The 42 PO in QoS and the 41,5 AT in Spectre share a similar size mostly and both look a bit larger, covering most of DCs wrist, while this piece just seems smaller...

Are their any clues, that the Matera Scene is early in the movie and kinda follows the Ending of Spectre?

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

If it's smaller, it's a forthcoming watch, as the Skyfall watch is discontinued.

That is not necessarily correct, as these two model (below) are available from omega in 38.5mm if it is indeed a 38.5mm. The Skyfall At was replaced a long time ago because it wasn’t a master co-axial movement like the 41.5mm AT in Spectre which was an updated movement and a smaller version was and still is available. Again a lot of speculation with very few identifying photos of the said piece.

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

Ah, that's great to know - I thought they'd replaced all their models with a horizontal teak pattern!

363

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

They did. This is basically only available as NOS - its the previous Collection. You can only get it used or have a lot of luck and may find a new piece here and there at an AD.

364

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

The current Omega Aqua Terras do indeed have horizontal ‘decking’ and the date window at 6 o’clock. They are available in 38mm and 41mm.
But Bond’s Watch appears to have the date window at 3 o’clock. So, an older model (SPECTRE) but not Skyfall as that had chrome surrounding the date window, which would be noticeable.

Pretty happy there’s an AT in the movie

Again not the best pictures, but still does not look like 41mm to me.
Also not sure about if its really still the old one, 3 o'clock marker is slightly less visible, might be the date or something completly different.

The smaller AT actually wears larger...so it could be.  Let’s see what Omega says in a few months.

Glad Tudor are (hopefully!) sorting it FOC, anyway.

Very odd and unfortunate. These anomalies happen, though, including on higher end pieces. My friend bought a new Pepsi GMT (he buys a lot of watches, so the AD sold him one from his vault) and the thing had a defective crown lock. The crown literally fell out of the watch right into the AD’s gloved hand!

Yikes. It seems crazy sometimes that you can pay all of this money and actually get something that doesn't always work as well and keep as good time as a £7 Casio, plus it needs to be expensively serviced! ajb007/smile I guess it's a bit like an Aston Martin being slightly more unreliable and needing expensive servicing, but that at least is a better and faster car than a Ford Ka!  ajb007/smile You're getting more for your money than just style unlike these watches, there's quite a bit more functionality too.

TBH it's not really about accuracy of time vs quartz. Quartz changed the game. For me, it's about owning and wearing something completely mechanical on my wrist. To me, it's simply amazing. No battery. Manually wound or wound by gravity/rotational forces. To me that's simply amazing. They also look incredibly classy.

I do own a cheap Casio which I tend to take to the beach or wear when riding my motorbike.

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

I see more of a place for mechanical watches than quartz watches these days. Who needs a cheap watch to tell time when we all have phones that tell even more accurate time? At least there is still a charm or a jewellery element to mechanical watches. Men’s jewellery all serves a purpose (watches, cufflinks, tie clips) but nobody needs any of these things. Buttons do a better job than cufflinks, but men still wear cufflinks to either appreciate them as jewellery or to make a statement. Mechanical watches are the same.

Video from the shooting in Matera. At around 0:50, DC gets a few seconds. You can, imho, clearly see the reflection from PCL of the Bracelet while he is moving his arm. Still thinking its to small for Full Size.

It really doesn’t matter.  Craig is a small guy.  A small watch doesn’t work for me.  Just like he wears small or medium shirts and I wear XL or XXL.
