    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.

    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.....

    It looks way better with a NATO strap then a Milanese bracelet, IMO.

    I envy you guys. I've wanted an Omega for a long time. It's always beyond me, financially. My favorite Omega model is one that Bond never bothered with, that isn't nearly as talked about, the Constellation:

    Absolutely gorgeous.

    My other favorite is the fantastic Seamaster Diver 300m:

    If I could only get one, it'd be the Constellation.

    That's a nice close-up from the film, with Bond changing gears while the camera lingers on the dial for around 5 seconds.

    Do you guys know how many years Omega will produce the new NTTD 007 Edition Diver? Or if it's gonna be a standard model, perhaps.

    Its said that it'll be around for quite some time until another 007 Omega gets produced for the next movie.

    Ah thanks! So no less than 4 years...

    In a perfect world, today would've been the day No Time To Die opens in cinemas here in Singapore. And I'd be all dressed up with my Aqua Terra at IMAX watching it by now..

    Ah yes, I love mine. It's such a good watch. Super versatile.

    Is this a 38.5 mm @imranbecks ?

    Today I tried the new Diver 007 Edition (with the Milanese bracelet not the NATO strap). Insane watch, ridiculously lighter than my steel on steel Seamaster 300. I believe it’s at least 50% lighter.

    My Aqua Terra is 41.5mm, as per the one worn in Spectre and later in NTTD as well.

    The latest Bond NTTD watch is titanium, hence the light weight of it.

    I am lucky enough to have a James Bond Omega, the Skyfall Seamaster Planet Ocean with '007' at 7am/7pm, which is a really nice watch and the branding is subtle enough that you'd only really notice it if it was pointed out.

    I do wish though that I was able to have the SPECTRE Omega Seamaster 300 with the Nato Strap, as seen in the film. Now that watch is a thing of beauty.

    Yes I saw that one in an Esquire article about the Bond edition Omegas: I was surprised how the 007 isn't immediately noticeable- rather neat! :)

    I do prefer the subtle approach. There are some Omega 007 watches where the whole watch face is the gunbarrel, or it has 007 patterns. Too garish for my tastes.

    Yeah I find the gunbarrel ones a bit nasty.

    I have the normal model which the Spectre was inspired from. They look very similar except for some subtle differences. The Spectre just costs too much at the moment. Great looking watch either way
    ;)

    Is it a bit chunky? I was watching a bit of Spectre of the other day and couldn't help but notice it sat very high off his wrist. I do really like the look of that one though.

    Nah, the 2008 PO was chunkier. I know it. I'm wearing it. It's really heavy.

    It sits high on the wrist because of the nato strap overlapping under the case. But honestly though, it's never bothered me.

    That does look like a very tall watch even without the strap.

    Well I had to thicken it up to fit in the C-4.

    If one is used to wearing thin dress watches, then this would be a big step in terms of height on the wrist. I've been wearing divers so the thickness really doesn't bother me. Advice you to give it a try first at the boutique to get a feel of it and see if the weight/size/thickness is ok for you.

    I do wear a couple of divers but that looks a step beyond. I've always liked the look of that one but never tried it: I'd really have to.
    Sadly I'm not a Nato strap fan for that reason even though I like the look of them.

    I'm wearing it now. Took a shot of it from the side profile so you can see the thickness. Might be thick for some, but it's fine for me.

    On the official Omega sites the AT 41,5 mm has a slightly different blue, perhaps yours it is not available anymore? Anyway yeah I know about the NTTD Diver. It's just so cool and comfortable. Here's a pic I took at the boutique, with my Seamaster 300 feeling jealous in the background:
