A New Bond, a New Omega?

Omega Blogger comments on the new Bond and his potential Omega.

If Omega retain the “product placement” rights will they go with a new Bond watch? My money would be on the Planet Ocean, I think the old Bond watch is looking a little tired.

OmegaBlogger Selling Blue Dialled Omega Electronic


This excellent condition Omega features the innovative and supremely accurate F300 Tuning Fork movement. Holding a place in history as the first electronic watches it is based on the Bulova Accutron movements. Much preferred by the Omega collector due to the fact that the second hand sweeps round smoothly unlike the jerky action of the inferior quartz watches.

Review – Omega Speedmaster Pro

I love my Speedy Auto, but I still pee a little when I see a Speedy Pro. Les Zetlein writes a very cute review of the Pro and mentions that Buzz Aldrain actually hated his Speedy. This, however, is a GREAT exchange:

“Yes,” said Carretta, “I’m looking for a high-quality, accurate but sturdy chronograph that can time events up to 12 hours.”
“Hmmmm. Manual wind or automatic?”
“Doesn’t matter, as long as it can be wound by hand as well.”
