    Ah, that's great to know - I thought they'd replaced all their models with a horizontal teak pattern!

    They did. This is basically only available as NOS - its the previous Collection. You can only get it used or have a lot of luck and may find a new piece here and there at an AD.

    The current Omega Aqua Terras do indeed have horizontal ‘decking’ and the date window at 6 o’clock. They are available in 38mm and 41mm.
    But Bond’s Watch appears to have the date window at 3 o’clock. So, an older model (SPECTRE) but not Skyfall as that had chrome surrounding the date window, which would be noticeable.

    Pretty happy there’s an AT in the movie

    Again not the best pictures, but still does not look like 41mm to me.
    Also not sure about if its really still the old one, 3 o'clock marker is slightly less visible, might be the date or something completly different.

    The smaller AT actually wears larger...so it could be. Let’s see what Omega says in a few months.

    Crikey! That's not good. I didn't think they were separate pieces and always thought they just were etched (as per Submariner(?) and Seamaster bezels. Perhaps an example of over-engineering on the part of Tudor on this particular model?

    Glad Tudor are (hopefully!) sorting it FOC, anyway.

    Very odd and unfortunate. These anomalies happen, though, including on higher end pieces. My friend bought a new Pepsi GMT (he buys a lot of watches, so the AD sold him one from his vault) and the thing had a defective crown lock. The crown literally fell out of the watch right into the AD’s gloved hand!

    Yikes. It seems crazy sometimes that you can pay all of this money and actually get something that doesn't always work as well and keep as good time as a £7 Casio, plus it needs to be expensively serviced! :) I guess it's a bit like an Aston Martin being slightly more unreliable and needing expensive servicing, but that at least is a better and faster car than a Ford Ka! :) You're getting more for your money than just style unlike these watches, there's quite a bit more functionality too.

    TBH it's not really about accuracy of time vs quartz. Quartz changed the game. For me, it's about owning and wearing something completely mechanical on my wrist. To me, it's simply amazing. No battery. Manually wound or wound by gravity/rotational forces. To me that's simply amazing. They also look incredibly classy.

    I do own a cheap Casio which I tend to take to the beach or wear when riding my motorbike.

    I see more of a place for mechanical watches than quartz watches these days. Who needs a cheap watch to tell time when we all have phones that tell even more accurate time? At least there is still a charm or a jewellery element to mechanical watches. Men’s jewellery all serves a purpose (watches, cufflinks, tie clips) but nobody needs any of these things. Buttons do a better job than cufflinks, but men still wear cufflinks to either appreciate them as jewellery or to make a statement. Mechanical watches are the same.

    Video from the shooting in Matera. At around 0:50, DC gets a few seconds. You can, imho, clearly see the reflection from PCL of the Bracelet while he is moving his arm. Still thinking its to small for Full Size.

    It really doesn’t matter. Craig is a small guy. A small watch doesn’t work for me. Just like he wears small or medium shirts and I wear XL or XXL.
