Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

The same OMEGA contact who could confirm Lea Seydoux's Constellation could not give me any details regarding this third watch. They suggested (and this is purely their opinion) that it was DC's own timepiece and as such couldn't even tell us if he was wearing an OMEGA or not in the final DB5 scene of SPECTRE.

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

Well, Stefan nailed it as an Omega two pages back (an Omega buckle, a any rate).

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

I've just been sent marketing from omega, featuring their new Olympic timekeeper watches, maybe a contender for the spectre third watch, but at over £10K it's a pricey option.

Interesting. Though would think Omega would have wanted a better in focus shot of it in the movie ajb007/smile

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

My take on the out of focus Omega is that Omega only wanted to market a watch or watches that they currently had in production. They had two special editions for the film, plus newer version of the blue AT. If they cannot offer for sale a watch seen on screen, then why show it. I was in the Omega boutique looking at NATO's and the sales lady joking said if I bought two straps she would throw in the Aqua Terra Spectre Collector's Edtion watch for free. Apparently they still have tons of this watch left. ajb007/lol Talk about an epic success and fail by the marketing department with regards to the two special editions where one is sold out and the other they cannot get rid off.

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

I've just bought the LE aqua terra, it's a beautiful watch and looks like nothing else. I already had the non le SM300 which I bought before I knew it was in spectre, I'm not sorry I missed out on the spectre le SM300. I don't think a third bond watch would have been a good move as even the two they did was oversaturation,, also marketing another new watch alongside the SM300, le SM300, le spectre aqua terra and the new globemaster would really be overkill. These new Olympic timekeepers are limited editions, all 3 are gold and they are all over 10K, but I reckon in the near future we will see them in steel, with bracelets etc. Omega seem to play their cards very close these days, none of my contacts get wind of these new watches until omega release these marketing mails or unveil at the Basel watch fair.

Hardly.  ajb007/rolleyes

The Aqua Terra Limited Edition was a massive success worldwide. We sold through our allocation in December last year after SPECTRE had been out for only a few weeks (the SE300 LE sold out before the movie was even released!). There are most definitely not tons of this piece left. Clearly the Boutique you visited either can't sell a beautiful timepiece properly to it's target market or they massively over ordered for their market to begin with. If they still have black/grey NATOs in stock then they obviously have no idea about selling to Bond fans as these are rarer than hens' teeth at the moment elsewhere in the world.

OMEGA always expected to have stock of this watch to last through to mid 2016 hence the production run of 15,007. Even watches like the Bond 50th Anniversary Seamaster Pro 300 was still available to buy in 2014 nearly two years after it was released and that was limited to 10,007 pieces.

The Aqua Terra was a beautiful attempt to do something different as the previous two decades worth of Bond Limited Edition watches were just copy/paste jobs of various 300s and Planet Oceans. Plus it was far more subtle than earlier Bond Limited Editions.

It's a great looking watch which looks incredible on the blue fabric strap that it comes with alongside the bracelet.

Two beautiful timepieces. Well done.

OMEGA HQ will not provide any info on the "third" watch worn in SECTRE so it's clearly - as discussed at length in these forums - DC's or the stylist's own vintage piece which OMEGA would gain nothing from promoting alongside the other two.

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

What's odd is that Omega did not even make any effort to market the blue master Co-axial AT that Bond clearly wore in the opening part of the movie and then again during the climax in London.. It's a beautiful piece. It wasn't even put up for auction at Christie's..

A beautiful watch indeed! It was probably in Omega's best interest to only promote one watch rather than into the two (or technically three) watches in the film. Focusing on one watch places a higher demand on that one watch, whereas if they pushed two watches neither one would probably see half the desirability.

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

Omega touted the limited edition bond aqua terra with the blue coat of arms face alongside the spectre SM300,  but as Matt says the SM300 got most of the limelight and promotion, hence the aqua terra has undersold. Its a beautiful watch and I'm happy to have it over the LE SM300. I know it wasn't used in the film but I believe DC wore it during his johnathan ross interview.

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

Exactly the same happened in Skyfall - actually worse! They promoted the watch which was only in the PTS instead of the Aqua Terra that was worn for 90% of the film

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

Well, if you guys remember, Omega did promote two watches for a Bond film once and it was for Casino Royale. Bond wore two watches in that one, namely the 45.5mm Planet Ocean on rubber strap and the Omega Seamaster Pro 2220.80. So quite odd that for both Skyfall and Spectre, they only promoted one model as the one worn in the respective film.

A point to note is that the only time I've seen it mentioned by Omega that Bond wears the Aqua Terra in Skyfall and in Spectre is in the current issue of Omega's Lifetime magazine.

Rubber. Caused quite the stir.

Re: Bond's watch in SPECTRE

The blue 42mm Seamaster Aqua Terra is already one of OMEGA's top 5 best-selling timepieces so there was no real need to throw more marketing money at it.

There was. I remember back in 2006, it was all over the Omega boutique and dealers. They displayed both the SMP and the Planet Ocean on rubber with all them poker cards and stuff along with the Casino Royale movie poster.. The one worn in the movie with all the dirt still on the watch was also auctioned off...lol

OMEGA did highlight the Aqua Terra in the Skyfall edition of their Lifetime Magazine back in 2012 and it also features in their James Bond Page on their website. I personally think that because it is fairly successful watch in its own right that they choose to focus on the limited edition pieces instead of promoting a piece that already sells very well.

Yes, very clearly shown at the website. But they don't promote it at the boutiques as the other Spectre watch. Even the staff doesn't have a clue that the blue Aqua Terra was worn in Spectre...
