    Re: Bond Seamaster Reveal

    My first impression was WOW. They really did create a watch that looks like its been used by Bond as opposed to a watch thats been created as a souvenir to a film. No offence intended to owners of other bond editions and Im not referring to ALL bond editions (love the sky fall and MC versions) but you know what I mean. The last one had a weird plaque stuck on the side of the case. This watch looks really cool. It even looks good on any nato judging by the photos and I dont even like nato straps. Then I spent a bit more time looking at it as I was really considering an AD visit. Putting my critical hat on, maybe theyre tried too hard on this. The domed crystal looks VERY domed and maybe that fauxtina is a bit too brown? Could it be that you tire of that watch fairly quickly. Then theres the price. I know its titanium but that cant double the price can it? I know there are other costs with manufacturing the new dials etc but its a SMP which is a ton of watch for under £4k and Tudor can make a Titanium watch for less than the price of a steel SMP. I dont have the money to splash on a watch like this to drop into the collection which would mean it would be more of a daily watch and that rules it out for me. The cynic in me cant help feel that Omega are trying to knock on the door of Rolex and thats not going to work. To do that, they need to remove 4000 watches from their Seamaster range for starters. Although I keep looking at photos of it which is a worrying sign for my illness to kick in. Perhaps this will go the same way as the ceramic speedies which took a huge tumble after a few months. THEN I can justify it as I will be "saving money". I may come back and retract this entire statement as I cant stop thinking about it. The voices are back.

    I actually like this a lot!!! Prefer my watches with no date...and this looks great on solid color nato, but it would look BOSS on black rubber!!! Does anyone know the lug width?

    To me it looks like someone at Omega bought a Pelagos LHD and said, “Hey, we need to do something like this too...”

    Re: Bond Seamaster Reveal

    Is it "vintage" fauxtina or is it actually light brown/tan?

    I will admit it looks absolutely superb on that brown leather.

    BUT to even start to justify the price, it should be made of grade 5 ti or better yet, grey ceramic like the GSotM (or even steel, although it would lose some of the vintage/"used" aesthetic in SS), and that bezel insert should be matt ceramic (like the Pelagos).

    If that was the case I'd now be thinking about what I could sell to pick one up! But as it is, my wallet is absolutely safe.

    I'm just glad its not a limited edition. It'll be easily available.

    But the price though. Yes its titanium but does it justify the price? Plus the aluminium bezel instead of ceramic... Kinda going backwards isn't it? Overall it looks good. I might get it, but not gonna pay full price for it. Perhaps preowned somewhere down the line. Doubtful it would increase in value since it isn't a limited edition like how the value of the Spectre Seamaster 300 has increased over the years.

    I like it, not at that price point though.

    Could buy a Speedmaster and PO or SMP, with money still leftover.
