I really liked the Omega Aqua terra in SF.

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

I'm curious to know just how much Omega pays to put their clocks on Bond's wrist ... somehow I doubt it's in the "millions" of dollars.

Really?? I think it most def is judging by Omegas marketing and the amounts of Seamasters and POs they sell along with the limited (or not so ltd) editions they sell. 

In fact I would prob say since Goldeneye Bond has had a hell of a influence on Omegas revival

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

+1, I think it being on Bond's wrist , sold a lot of watches. ajb007/lol

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

Well, Heineken paid $ 45.000.000 to be shown two small scenes in Skyfall. I can't imagine what the four and a half minute wristshot in the PTS of Skyfall must have cost Omega. I do think that in Omega's case the connection with Bond is worth every penny. They only have to sell 9000 POs to make back the 45 million Heineken invested....

ajb007/lol  I'd never thought about it before but I guess Directors
have to workout where to fit " contracted " product shots.
As well as trying to make the best  film they can.

Unveiled today by Omega. what do you think of this for Bond's new watch in Bond 24? I'm not sure yet, something seems to be missing with this watch.

The polished centre links really let it down, other than that it has a very 60's vintage feel, it is almost identical to their 1957 Seamaster 300 model, if Only Rolex had the same drive to make some old 6538 / 5513 / 5512 type models instead of some of their newer gaudy models. The newer Rolex GMT is also let down by the polished centre links. I just can't understand who steps in a ruins a good idea like that ?

I would personally like to see a stainless steel diver return. I certainly don't buy into the, frankly tedious, argument that JB should wear a Rolex. He will have been wearing an Omega for 20 years soon enough. I am fortunate enough to own an Omega PO and  a Rolex Sub 114060 so as a watch fan I'm just looking forward to whatever is selected, I just hope they don't change the watch models again  ajb007/rolleyes

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

I personally don't like something pretending to be something it is not, but in this case I think Omega have done a better job than Tuder did with their Black Bay Red.

Bond SHOULD be wearing a Rolex  ajb007/biggrin

They didn't.

It was widely reported like that but the $45 million figure was the total paid for all product placement deals in Skyfall. That includes Heineken, Omega and everyone else.

I think you're wrong.

Heineken did and Omega is supposed to have a 50 million contract over 4 movies
