    7,007 pieces limited edition, ah well....

    But I like that for once this is a proper, tacky, Bond, Exit through the gift shop watch, just as silly as the movies (in a good way).

    This doesn't appeal to me either

    The Spectre is better, Iíll give you that. The normal Seamaster 300 is nice, I wouldnít buy one (itís just not Ďmeí) but it is nice.

    Whatís different for me is knowing. I know itís a movie tie-in and itís that in itself in this case (though amongst other things in cases of the more garish models) that switches me off to it.

    If you like it, go for it (it looks like you have!) Iím one man and clearly Omega are selling enough without me picking one up.

    What I am saying that I like is that though I may dislike the unlimited-limited editions, the franchise association has done the world of good for Omega and that either directly or indirectly that has led me to appreciate some great watches. I think we can both get behind that.
    Nicely stated. For the record, I'm a life-long Bond fan and aside from the SPECTRE Limited Edition - which was a watch that Bond actually wore in a film - I've yet to see any of these Ltd Eds that have thrilled me all that much. Closest prior to the SPECTRE edition was probably the Quantum of Solace model from 2008, which featured a pattern on the dial that mimicked the grip of Bond's PPK.
    However, what ruined this watch (for me, anyway) was that it was a 45.5mm model. Daniel Craig wore a 42mm Planet Ocean in that film and, for once, he copied me, since I'd gotten my 42mm PO 18 months before the film was released.
    Sad, aren't I?

    Either way, I'd prefer to have a watch like Bond wears on-screen rather than some limited edition commemorative watch with Bond film lore motifs plastered all over it. Which is why I think the SPECTRE Seamaster has been the best model so far.

    Lucky for me, though, my Bond watch stable is full.

    The first thing I thought of when I saw this watch is the old Steve Jobs quote about Microsoft: They just have no taste.

    It's cool but not for me. I am a Bond fan but the latest films have left me somewhat disappointed, Casino and Quantium I liked a lot, then they went a bit downhill thereafter plot wise. Watchable and enjoyable but not like the films that came before it.

    I feel the filmmakers tried to pull one over us by using editing backdrops and giving us fake locations (hotel in Casino is one example) but the stories of Casino and Quantum made up for it. Then they got a bit ridiculous with the plots thereafter too. Reminding me of every Brosnan Bond Film after the fantastic Goldeneye.

    For someone who is a true fan of the current films, I think it's the perfect watch. For me it's the first Omega Bond LE or the 2541 Quarz which I have and love.

    My view is these are sold as mantle pieces and movie events souvenirs. They are meant to be outlandish. They not designed to be daily watches. A bit like a baseball full of signatures you don't play with.

    I’ve got a 2541, which I love! The original Bond Omega, to me. Great piece.

    I suppose I don’t get spending thousands on a watch to not wear it. Other do it, more power to them, but it seems like a life unfulfilled for the poor watch, sat most-definitely-not gathering dust!

    This is exactly how I was describe it except I donít find that to be a good thing.
