    Bond must have a big watch case with him ;) or... so much for continuity.

    But I do think the AT suits this scene better. I’d love it if he had his old PO from CR or QOS, but they don’t sell the old 2500 42mm anymore do they? Anyways, the AT is beautiful.

    The 2500 PO he wore in CR and QOS as well as the 8500 PO he wore in Skyfall is already out of production and not available at the boutiques anymore. Only in the preowned market.

    Great shot and I really like what they've done with the watch for this film by giving it a patina.

    Wow, this faux patina Seamaster looks so much better than it sounds at first. It just works!

    Tried on the NTTD watch on nato today.. Aka Nomi's watch. They didn't have stock for Bond's one on mesh though. Yes, incredibly the one on mesh is already sold out in Singapore and needs to be pre-ordered. Only have the one on nato available.

    The Aqua Terra I was wearing looks better though :P

    My understanding is that Nomi will be wearing a black faced AT throughout NTTD.

    I thought you got both straps with them: I'd certainly hope so for that price! :)
    Yeah that's not a hugely flattering photo of it.

    Any love for the Speedmaster Moonwatch? I’m saving up to buy one. I know that Bond haven’t worn one, so it may be a little OT.

    One of the most beautiful watches ever made. And iconic to booth. I'd get it if I were you ;)

    PS: Ever watched The American, with George Clooney? The watch figures immensely.

    As a Bond fan, I have of course glanced at the Seamaster 300 Diver, but the Speedmaster just appeals more to me. I like the Rolex Submariner worn in Goldfinger but that’s just way out of my price league.

    Haven’t seen The American, will definitely check that out.

    She wears the AT later on, but also the Seamaster 300m on nato in the film as well. Bond isn't the only one that wears more than one watch in the movie ;)

    And here's the one of her with the AT.....

    Arguably the best and the most iconic watch ever, together with Rolex Submariner. You can't go wrong with that classic.

    That's not James Bond but it's Daniel Craig. He is off character there in that press photocall in Matera ;)

    Craig wore a Speedmaster at the recent Golden Globes too.

    And on that NYC TV show he did recently with the rest of the cast out on the pavement, didn't he? It is a very lovely one.

    Plus Bond of course briefly wore a vintage Omega Chronograph at the end of Spectre. I'd have liked to have seen more of that.

    I know, but it'll be a close as we get to Bond wearing a Speedmaster. I feel it's completely the wrong choice of watch for Bond, personally.
