Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

I seriously doubt it, but I'll throw it in the pot for speculation...Tom Ford watches are now available. I doubt Bond would leave Omega, but just thought I'd share.

Can't say I'm a fan of the date at 6 o'clock. They add back one "Bond" element and take away a few others.

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

Sadly, I can foresee the new Seamaster being slapped on Bond’s wrist - especially if nobody buys it at first.

Maybe the Bond edition will put the date window back ajb007/smile

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

Not a fan of how pronounced the dial waves are in comparison to the original more subtle waves.

31

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

Honestly they really butchered the watch and the dial is AWFUL! Some of the other aesthetic changes are definitely odd like the 6 o'clock date the open case back but I'll have to see one in the metal to make a clear determination. Based on the pictures i see no need to upgrade to this watch when my 2535.80 has a way better design!

At 5:20 OMEGA VP Product & Customer Service Jean-Claude Monachon declares that "There will be a watch coming for that...(Bond 25)" So MAYBE not a Seamaster 300m....

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

For me that weird conical shape of the Helium valve is really irritating, I guess I'll need some time to get used to this one.

34

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

After having seen the interview i think there will be a new version of the seamaster 300 or the planet ocean for the movie, which has not been unveiled yet.

And i highly suggest them not to give him the new seamaster 300, it looks like a kids toy swatch regarding the dial. They really messed this one up..totally agree

35

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

Remember though, that he might be talking about another 007 Collectors Edition rather than a specific new screen used watch...

But I also agree, I don't like this latest edition of the Seamaster.

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

I must say that is a huge disappointment. Omega are seriously losing the plot..

The 1993 Seamaster and 2006 Planet Ocean are design classics. They are practical and look classy. Rolex have never really messed with the Submariner, because they know there is no need to!! Omega seem to be obsessed with changing the designs of these once classic watches for change sake. Really cheapens the brand IMO ajb007/mad

Yeah seriously, I think the Brosnan era Seamaster is still their best design by far. that will always be the ultimate Bond Omega to me. Craig just wears way too many that they barely have enough time or exposure to really stand out.

Agreed. The Brosnan-era automatic Seamaster is the best, and the CR PO could’ve become Craig’s staple, but Omega’s constant need to tweak designs and throw random watches on Bond’s wrist undermined that opportunity. My dislike for Omega is intensifying.

In any event, next year’s Baselworld should shed more light on Bond’s watch(es) in 25 than this one - assuming the detectives here haven’t already broken that news in the interim.

I think the 2220.80 which was worn by Pierce Brosnan and then Daniel Craig is the sweet spot for the Seamaster because its so versatile where as The Planet Ocean is a nice watch but its too thick especially once they went to a sapphire caseback.

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

Whilst my wife was shopping I decided to kill some time by looking at our local omega dealers watches.  I noticed there were a couple of omegas on different nato straps, one sporting the colours of the italian flag.  I got talking to the sales assistant who told me that omega had released many natos.  I checked the website and there are now 40 you can buy
www.omegawatches.com/omega-nato-straps-031cwz007566w

Looking through the site I also found an omega that I thought could be a contender for bond 25

The black ceramic on black rubber strap is the one I am talking about as I think the others would be a bit too colourful.  Interested to know peoples thoughts on this one.

I'm sorry......that last hand...nearly killed me

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

The brown NATO band is gorgeous.
There is a high probability that the next bond watch will be in ceramic (IMHO).
Price is not cheap

Must admit I was thinking black ceramic would be perfect for a mission watch but not really an everyday watch with his TF Suits. But that said he did wear SM300 on a NATO with his suits in Italy in SPECTRE and Bond never really been one to follow convention at times.

Either way my gut feel is it will be a special PO (maybe black Ti) or SMP variant. Or they could throw a curve ball and give him a DeVille who knows after he wore a more classic watch at the end of SP.

Still think a shot of him in RN uniform with a Black Seamaster on a NATO would be the cool shot missing from any of his films maybe as he arrives on board the new Queen Elizabeth carrier for an overseas mission.

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

I think the ceramic Omega rumour did the rounds last time.

I guess nobody really knows and just looking at options not yet used.  They seem to keep the watch locked down well

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

I would love if the NATO strap came back again in Bond 25. It's the perfect strap for a Bond that's more tactically inclined like Craig's portrayal is since its not shiny and noisy.

45

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

I'm not sure about the new Seamaster. But I know one thing, the pictures on Omega's website always fail to impress me. Most Omega watches look a lot better in real life.

I would love to see Craig end his run with a big Planet Ocean on his wrist. It is the watch that 'defines' Craigs tenure for me.

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

+1 for a PO. It’s the quintessential Craig Bond watch for me, Like Brozza’s SMP, Roger’s Seikos, and Connery’s big crown Sub.

47

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

Agree, they need to tweak the PO and make it look more classic like the first generation he wore in CR/QOS (modeled after the 1968 SM300 which Craig owns)....The new Seamaster with wave dial is garbage...I also wonder if he will still wear the AT.

Re: Bond´s watch in Nr. 25

Well I was hoping for something more like these:

But more likely the modern take:

Or this is kinda cool and blue for his Navy roots!

Yeah you can have some fun with NATO’s on the Omega website at the moment. I am thinking of getting the blue to match with my blue TI for the summer (just wish they did same with red or orange piping)

I though this for an operational watch
