“The name is Bond, James Bond.”
Those six words were not only my introduction to one of the greatest fictional heroes but also to the world of high end replica watches. While I had already developed a lingering interest in watches in my teens, it was the cheap fake Omega Seamaster Professional on the wrist of Pierce Brosnan as James Bond in Goldeneye that made me want to have the same watch.
While it wasn’t easy to get an aaa quality fake Omega Seamaster Professional as I was still in school, a paper route and working on weekends and during vacations allowed me to prevail – with this year marking the twenty-second that it is proudly on my wrist, though these days on rotation with a few other timepieces.
While the literary Bond always remained faithful to Rolex, the cinematic Bond has varied between brands. He occasionally flirted with Seiko and Breitling alongside numerous “Bond girls” – and Moneypenny, of course – but Rolex and Swiss made replica Omega have stayed attached to him the longest.
I don’t favor one high end super clone Omega over the other as both brands fit very naturally into his world. They are rugged though luxurious and sophisticated, yet also just another instrument in Her Majesty’s toolbox to get the job done by any means necessary.
For the 25th installment of the James Bond franchise No Time to Die, 007 became a victim of an enemy too big to fight: the COVID-19 pandemic pushed back the movie’s release several times, but now we remain in high hopes that it will finally have its premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in London on September 28, 2021.
This film marks Daniel Craig’s final appearance as the world’s most famous secret agent; he will retire from the role after this. This makes No Time to Die an important film as it brings together and concludes all the continuing storylines intertwined from the Craig era, a first in the franchise.
