Just saw some new images from the current (2008) James Bond filming posted on CommanderBond.net, and thought I'd pass along this LINK to the best image of the 007 wristwatch.

Comparing the size to Daniel Craig wearing Omega "Seamaster Planet Ocean Big Size" reference 2900.50.91 on the rubber strap in Casino Royale, it looks like things haven't changed much: Now it's the reference 2200.50.00 on a stainless steel bracelet.

Not exactly the thrill of the hunt we had a couple of years ago; but nice to see Mr. Craig establishing his own identity style w/ the Planet Ocean (not that I wouldn't argue just as favorably on behalf of Mr. Brosnan and "his" choice!). Hopefully you've read it here first.

Now the speculation can begin regarding any likely Omega Limit Series this year, and whether that will be 5,007 or 10,007 pieces. :cool:

This is excellent, at least for me. I have the same type of watch...well I have the 2200.51. I should've known that he would graduate to the steal bracelet. Nevertheless, i started a thread on the future 08 Bond watch and there are rumors about a black SMP Bond.

Those are fantastic pictures. There have been a few pictures circling around that show him wearing the PO on SS. Maybe the SMP has had its day as Bond timepiece :scared:
But so long as he's wearing an Omega I'll be happy :w00t:

If I derailed your Thread, I'm sorry. :blushing:

Dell not at all. I was just mentioning that there was a rumor about a new SMP in black that was suppose to be the older model but in black instead of blue.

Double-O a'la 2220.80

Hmm, yeah-- Sometime w/in the first days of this year, I recall reading on one of the James Bond websites supposedly "insider" information that Daniel Craig would wear a new black/black version of the venerable 2220.80 Omega Seamaster as 007 in Bond 22. The new model to be "officially" unveiled in April.

That was before these photos were released, of course. I dunno about you all, but the watch in the image I linked to above only looks like PO proportions to me, and it's certainly not the signature "Bond" Omega bracelet.

Maybe it's being confused w/ the 2252.50 w/ some planned upgrade from the 1120 calibre to co-axial movement? :confused1:

Either way, it would make sense for Omega to market a simliar but different watch altogether. Remember, Casino Royale was the first film since Brosnan that featured two Omega's. So, they are just changing things even if it is a little bit.

I'm guessing the names "Deaton, Dell Deaton".

Great espionage work. Your not looking to take over once Mr Craig gives up his license to kill are you?:biggrin:

To quote Fergie: I'm just pleased to see Bond 22 wearing an Omega.
I seem to remember that there was a pre_Casino Royale thread that broke records for the longest post ever whilst we were speculating on which Omega Mr Craig would wear. I can see this happening all over again.:thumbup:

Anything I can find out for you Bond fanatics?...My wife's best friend's brother left on Wed. for London to start filming. He only has 3 lines and is supposed to die rather soon in the movie as a bad guy. Although they have already done pre-production he knows little about the plot etc. i guess one of his perks is he's supposed to get an Omega watch...we'll see what happens.

Therein lies the problem. There will come a day when a better offer will be made and Omega in Bond films will be history just as Rolex is now. :crying:

A 007 watch for every taste....

Maybe this makes me a "glass half full" sort of character, but I see 007 wristwatches a bit differently. :001_rolleyes:

A number of James Bond actors wore the Submariner, and that is a fact of history. So, when I'm feeling sorta like a Rolex, I can pull that from my case and still remain loyal to Our Man. (It actually adds a level of interest for me as a collector to think of some watches in terms of the actors, eg, "The Dalton-Rolex" being the Rolex Submariner Date.) For fans of the digitals, we've got both LCD and LED, which in and of itself adds to the cool factor. :cool:

And talk about opportunities for trivia! If you're anything like me, don't you just enjoy asking your spouse and friends to name the one and only 007 to wear watches w/ the 1120 calibre movement? (No matter how many times I ask, I always win that game. :huh:)

For now, the main thing that the continued Omega affiliation with the Craig-era Bond films means to me is an expanding list of options for wearing true-Bond watches. Or, in the case of my wife, increasing fear that my collection will have to grow to keep up! :001_wub:
