    All this talk about Bond wearing a smartwatch reminds me of the smartwatch that was used in Kingsman. It was a Tag Heuer smartwatch used in that film.

    First thought went to Domino hunting starfish, but okay, Kissy it is.

    Not a bad look at all. Great colours.

    Another Seiko added to the collection: Moonraker promo watch - seen in the advert featuring the image of Bond in space suit popping up through the watch face. This is the C153 series calculator watch (C153 5007, naturally).

    No doubt Seiko is currently leading the Watch Brands Elimination game.

    Giving my Bond SMP bracelet a break after 11 years. Swapped it out with the recently acquired Omega steel mesh for that NTTD and Bond 60th watch vibe. Loving the new look without the need to buy a whole new watch. Very sleek.

    Scrolled all the way down and saw several beautiful Seamaster photos, already knew who made the post. ;) @imranbecks your collection is extremely enviable! Hope to one day join the ranks as an Omega owner.
    Steel mesh looks great on that example.

    You're too kind. Thank you. Never too late to be an Omega owner ;)

    The strap looks fantastic, and really does change the whole look!

    I never thought it would happen to me, or even particularly lusted after one, then an irresistible opportunity just dropped into my lap and I regret nothing. Adore this watch.

    It has a new lease of life on the mesh bracelet. Looks like a whole new watch!

    It's funny how many here praising Omega, I've actually thought Omega and Rolex would go into head to head for the final round of Elimination Game, alas, it's Seiko! 😅

    NTTD mesh is pretty neat. Finally picked up the Seiko TV watch - film version is a prototype that looks different from the consumer models, so will be an interesting project trying to get it looking as close as possible.

    I do love those mesh straps. They do make a watch look the business. I have changed several of my straps to mesh ones.

    They're also comfortable and easy to adjust.

    Definitely. And the Omega mesh alone is unlike any other. Having handled various aftermarket mesh bracelets before this, Omega's mesh is on another level.

    I know Apple calls this type of strap Milanese Loop... is that just an Apple thing? Or does that terminology exist in the watch world too?

    EDIT: https://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/watches/article/omega-swatch-moonswatch-moonshine-gold-exclusive-2023

    There's a new Omega x Swatch Moonswatch. When these first came out I was of course enamored at the idea of a ~$300 watch with an Omega logo on it, but given enough time, I'm glad I didn't wait in line for one of these... apparently the quality is really poor.

    Looks great. Unfortunately I don't own any super expensive watches. Just several good old homages 😁

    Gold bars, 98 Rolex watches awarded to long-serving employees of Paradise Group

    Rolex watches were given to staff who had served the company for at least 10 years, regardless of position.

    Milanese is the type of mesh (guess who originally invented it for armour?) and the Omega ones (and likely the Apple ones) are highly likely to be made by Staib. You an get various ones, but obviously the Omega designed ones fit the look best with their watches. I put a Milanese on my Apple Watch for a bit, but it’s not official — just a half decent clamp/clip Milanese onto adapters that go into the Apple Watch from an Archers strap.

    Yup that's a local company right here in Singapore where I'm at. Making all the news here for giving out Rolex to their long serving staff.

    I thought you all would enjoy this:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/JamesBond/comments/10xfppa/my_latest_james_bond_art_series_combining_bond/

    Not a watch man myself, but I respect the artistry of this project. An artist made portraits of each Bond actor, sampling designs from each of the unique watches they wore during their tenures for use in the background of each picture.

    Here's a shade of blue. Haven't worn this in a while. My other Omega's are getting less wrist time since getting the mesh bracelet for my SMP :P
