    Any insight you can share on this one per your conversation with the Omega REP? Is it just the limited edition one or the actual Diver 300 we have been seeing in photos while DC is filming

    All I know is the watch that's being released in August is a Diver 300 with a specialty box, Strap and bracelet. I don't think it's the movie watch.

    Before I quit the whole thing, I was told that the first watch released would be a special edition but not the one seen on screen. Some kind of 007 edition with gun barrel and golden hands IIRC. Omega dealers sure could tell you more, they got the description and prices at Omega's event after Baselworld.

    I saw the stunt watch some time ago and was hoping the bezel and dial would be different on the screen used Omega, but no. Just handled the screen used watch itself and it’s going to be a marmite thing. I’m not going to buy this, the colour is horrendous. Yes, it has the broad arrow, yes it has the mesh bracelet with traditional buckle, not deployant. But why did they have to make the dial and bezel brown :(. It’s horrible.

    If Asp-Brewmont-9mm finds it horrible, I am sure that I am gonna like it!

    Just placed a blind order at my AD :D

    I'm still looking forward to some official pictures of it. My AD is holding an Apollo themed Omega party next month. Perhaps they'll have some details by then!

    Are the bezel and dial really going to be brown?

    Im sure it will be a sell out considering quite a few here will buy DC's underpants :D

    I thought it was a black dial with black bezel and goldish faux lumina print......if its brown and brown dial that sounds not the greatest!

    They better have a PO in the movie after that watch....

    I have a brown dial watch. Never wear it. Just not versatile.

    I have seen some lovely brown watches such as a Seiko Cocktail Time and a Sinn Frankfurt Financial District GMT. Those are dress and business watches. I can't see a brown Seamaster working in the flesh.

    Is it supposed to be like a black dial that has faded to a chocolate with age?

    Just terrible. My dislike for Omega grows.

    One would think that DC would be heavily involved with the Omega of his choice in this movie....just looks like Omega pushing the Diver 300 .....there better be a second watch that looks classic and solid for 007

    How could we go from SPECTRE LM to... grunts ... BROWN.
    a reasonable rate of return

    This sort of chocolate brown I guess? Odd decision. Disappointing.

    Might look slightly better with the steel case and bracelet, but then again they probably just make the bezel and dial show up even more brown. :#

    What size after all? 39/40mm? Or the standard 42/44mm?

    What makes you think Craig’s involvement in the decision would improve the choices? As his influence has grown, Bond’s wardrobe - with a couple of notable exceptions - has greatly suffered. My guess is he handpicked this garbage.
  • Sriram858Sriram858 Posts: 180MI6 Agent
    You are probably right....hopefully we get a clear picture of the watch soon.....do you all think there will be two watches in the fim or just the one with mesh and brown dial/bezel?

    My guess is we'll see two based on the Craig era's past history. The only one of his films to feature one watch was QOS.

    Brown dear god no! (I hope there is a second watch in the film if it is).

    But on reflection I did wear a brown watch on NATO in a place rather sandy, but that was for tactical reasons, so maybe I should not comment! :))

    Cheers :007)

    I once had a brown faced breitling bemtley, not for long though as the novelty soon wore off.
    It was either that.....or the priesthood

    Brown can work on some watches...

    As for Craig's influence, we've heard he didn't much want to wear "Pierce's watch" after Casino Royale, but it's less likely that he's the reason there've been two tie-in watches in each of his films besides QoS. And whatever other questionable fashion decisions we've seen, the watches from his stretch have been almost unanimously well-received before now, haven't they?

    Oh, I'd own every one if I could! I've even come around on the Seamaster redesign he did the adverts for! The blue hands really pop against the grey face!
