Omega told me: “Alexander the year 2017 marks three noteworthy anniversaries for Albert R. Broccoli’s EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios’ (MGM) Bond franchise including: the 50th anniversary of ‘You Only Live Twice’; the 40th anniversary of ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’; and the 20th anniversary of ‘Tomorrow Never Dies.’ In each of these films, James Bond can be seen wearing his official military uniform.”
Raynald Aeschlimann, CEO and President told me: “Alexander, to celebrate these anniversaries we created a unique watch design inspired by the red, white and blue colours of the Royal Navy as well as the Commander’s insignia itself.”
I think you all know that Omega has been the choice of James Bond since 1995, when the spy first wore a Seamaster watch in the film “GoldenEye”. Since then, the character and Omega have shared every on-screen adventure together.
