James Bond 007 shades of the Swatch

The wrist of James Bond, there is a Omega watch, and since the film GoldenEye in 1995. But the wrist of Q, in the next Not Time To Die, the 25th film of 007, and the last appearance of Daniel Craig in the skin of the spy mythical one imagined by Ian Fleming, it is a Swatch that we will be able to see it. A choice is disturbing, when one recalls that, in the past, Nicolas G. Hayek had said that if the Omega were made for 007, the villains prefer Swatch… Q would he have changed sides? Answer 2 April.

Meanwhile, Swatch has just introduced a new collection of watches dedicated not to the enemies of Bond, but in her adventures. For this capsule collection includes six models, whose launch is planned for 20 February 2020, the watchmaker was inspired by the original posters and opening sequences of James Bond 007 contre Dr. No (1962), On Her Majesty’s secret service (1969), Moonraker (1979), Licence to kill (1989), The world is not enough (1999) and Casino Royale (2006). We love the small space shuttle, the dial of the Moonraker as the atmosphere of the green carpet of the Casino Royale. The icing on the cake vintage: the presentation of the watches in boxes way VHS tapes…

A seventh creation part of this collection 007 should follow shortly: a piece created with the costume designer of the film death can wait, Suttirat Anne Larlab for Q, the creator of the gadgets of James Bond.

This is not the first time, as that the Swatch is a tribute to Agent 007, and many of the watches produced are now collectors. Thus, in 2002, a suitcase special contained 20 watches for the 40th anniversary of the franchise. In 2008, the Swatch returned, but this time with a collection limited to 222 copies of 22 creations, each devoted to a villain specific.
