With over 26 movies and seven actors playing the man on film, James Bond has had a lot of birthdays. Now, to mark three colliding anniversaries – Tomorrow Never Dies is 20, The Spy Who Loved Me 40, while You Only Live Twice is now half a century old – Omega has released a brand new 007 watch.
As a riff on the classic Seamaster, the ‘Commander’s Watch’ in steel celebrates the rank of Britain’s favourite secret agent and places the colours of the Ensign – red, white and blue – upon a rubber-ceramic bezel and Nato strap. It’s limited to just 7,007 pieces worldwide. If that wasn’t MI5 enough, the seconds hand boasts a tiny 007 motif – some subtle branding rather than smacking a photo of Pierce Brosnan right there on the dial.
If you see yourself as more Man With The Golden Gun though, a limited batch of seven pieces are available in yellow gold.
Consider us shaken, our wallets stirred.
Available at Omega, priced from £3,720.
