The Entire Omega Seamaster x James Bond 007 History

Postby Racer-X » July 4th 2017, 8:19am

by Brice Goulard "None of them need an introduction anymore. On one side is the most famous special agent in the world. On the other side is one of the most respected Swiss watch brands. And their collaboration is as explosive as the movies are. While in most films, watches are only doing short screen appearances, with James Bond 007, this accessory has gained a totally different status, becoming a character on its own. Here is an exhaustive retrospective of all Omega watches used in James Bond movies, from 1995 Goldeneye to 2015 Spectre."

My SM 600 is absolutely one of my favorite watches in my collection. If I can ever pick up an AT then my Omega desires will be fulfilled. Oh, and maybe an SMP. Yeah, then I will be done with buying Omegas.

Fun stuff. On this July 4, I wish everyone here an Omega Seamaster. Y'all deserve one.

It's a motherfucking product placement, for fuck's sakes.

The obsession of man-children with Bond and his watches continues unabated :shock:

That shit made sense when we were 5yr olds but is beyond pathetic 40 years later. People would do better to grow up or go do something genuinely exciting for themselves. Rather they live vicariously through story characters and their trinkets.

Exactly!

If I have a high stress job and want to feel like a super spy because I wear an Omega Bond watch, that's my business. Better than a whole other mess of coping skills. No harm done.
