Well... I am about buy my first watch and just had a very crazy idea.

I suppose there is no such thing as an "SMP tuning kit", however in "Tomorrow never dies" and "The world is not enough" the SMP quartz was shown with nice blue and white backlight.

Have you ever heard of an official omega SMP (quartz) that comes with backlight?

Has anyone actually did such a tuning?

I would love to have that feature on my future watch, since the watch already looks cool at nigh, this would only increase the fun futher.

(Try not to get too shocked when after reading my post :D :D )

Well it's not a digital watch pal.

Actually and it could be because I'm still a touch sleepy, I think it's not a bad idea.....

Ummmmnnnnn...... are you intending to play with it before falling asleep at night? :lol::lol::lol:

I doubt if a retrofit like this would be possible my friend, save for some specialist department as suggested ;)


Be well now :001_smile:

Omega Chronometer modified for "The World Is Not Enough"

Well... I am about buy my first watch and just had a very crazy idea.

Although I'm not terribly familiar with this item, I've read that a number of Omega 2531.80 Seamasters were modified for POP displays used by Authorized Dealers. You should be able to see an example on the bondtoys.de website. And we're talking about the Omega 2531.80 Seamaster (mechanical) from The World Is Not Enough here.

However, I don't think you'll be satisfied by this. First off, the dial is pierced and meant to serve as a torch (flashlight), as opposed to backlight. One of the film props was at a special James Bond Exhibition at The Henry Ford in Deerborn, Michigan, that I attended a few years ago: It required external wires and a hefty battery to opperate. I think the POP versions had something similar, and, in fact, may have had to have the mechanisms removed in order to function.

Finally, take a look a the dials on these watches in still-frames from the films. You'll notice that the only 007 feature in which the 2541.80 (quartz) appeared was the first w/ Pierce Brosnan, GoldenEye. That watch was modified to appear to have a blinking red light where the triangle marker sits on the bezel; but no backlight.
