Jesus Christ, this must be saddest videos I've watched all year.
Feel sorry for this guy...
Any one knows how much does the Omega 300 cost the one worn by Daniel Craig in Spectre and if the same model is available for women.
Grey market about £4 to 4.5K.
Very stupidly priced tbh.
And no, not available for women.
Which one does he wear in Spectre?
That's a lot of money just for the Bond connection. Quite like it but its not four grand nice.
£4K, I'd rather spend it on a nice holiday...
I can't stand Bond.
Think he's a bit of a twat.
But as a fictitious salesman, he is very good at selling watches.
that is a nice watch - indeed, its a virtual copy of the 70's seamaster 300
That is sad, but i guess there must be a replica available for the females. Thanks for the info
It is a beautiful watch indeed.
I found a solution to this problem - a Pulsar Kinetic, a quartz-controlled automatic mechanism, poorer relative of the Seiko Kinetic. Second-hand too so it cost me £30 and never loses time.
One of these on Antiques Roadshow last night. The first electronic watch, they sold over 5 million before the quartz digital watches flooded in from Japan. Valued at about £300 as there are so many of them
I REALLY like this watch
just pre ordered one of these above , an Aevig Corvid a micro watch maker in Holland , never really heard of them previously , it is a one man operation , he designs the concept , takes pre orders and then delivers only in limited editions . His previous watches have sold well and get good reviews. All the exclusivity aside I really like the design and excited about it arriving in a couple of months
Lovely clean dial. The design reminds me a bit of the Meistersingers:
MeisterSinger Einzeigeruhren: No.01
I bought it to replace an old Timex I`ve been wearing for years when I am going to places that I do not feel comfortable wearing my other watch . The snob in me likes the idea of having something more exclusive .
They didn't make that many Spaceviews. A genuine one would be more like £700. There are loads of snides around. Removing the dial and printing on the glass. The movement was used in other watches, the Omega F300s. Nicknamed 'Hummers' because of the sound they make.
that is a beauty.
in memory of Moore.
Watches of James Bond
What do people think of the Apple Watch Series 2?
There's been a few on sale on the watch forum.
Was thinking of getting one and linking it up with GPS/ HR chest monitor strap.
And also for navigation.
My "new" watch:
Actually I bought this watch in 2003, but from 2007 onwards it became a kitchen clock as the strap went on it (and has now spent more time in that role than as an actual watch). A slightly more expensive Casio and a cheapest-of-the-cheap Argos watch which both succumbed to strap breakage replaced that, then I bought a new strap for the above watch via eBay two months ago, and successfully replaced the strap thanks to a guide on YouTube. The question is whether the strap will outlast the battery, which is now 14 years old. For now it does the job and does it well, and it feels good to give something a new lease of life that would otherwise probably had long gone in the bin.
Man shot and stabbed to death for his Rolex
I like Rolex too but to die for one?
Massively over priced with a shit battery life like almost all smartwatches. It's also fugly too. If you want to spend yer money, get a Samsung Gear 3 which is a far better looking watch with a better battery life.
Nah, I changed my mind now. Was tempted with the Apple Watch but like all other smart watches, it's wank.
Problem with these (like most commercial tech) is that they're out of date in 10 months time.
And then it's more money spinning wank as you need to update.
I bought this £14 for a festival and think it's a grand little thing. Shame the lume is rubbish.
For £14, I'd had got a digital Casio - in camo.
Update on Padi.
I 'had' to buy this watch as years ago, I fell in love with Seiko's 6309.
This modern reincarnation has quite a number of flaws - a slightly misaligned bezel, a bracelet that looks good but feels like cheap aluminium and poor time-keeping that's -18 secs a day.
I don't mind it, and wearing it more than my more expensive watches.
It's a keeper.
Here's a pic of it on a £10 blue rubber strap.
