    Wasn't there some talk that the next Bond could be a woman? Because that would TOTALLY work.... :rolleyes:

    Also the next Miss Marple will be Joe Lycett.

    I never read the books so I don’t know what James Bond is “supposed” to be but Daniel Craig as Bond is how I would imagine him to be. Total badass. From kid to adult, I always enjoyed the movies and actors. Good or bad, they are a nice escape from reality.

    In general, not specific to this forum, I've noticed that many will often pick the actor who they grew up with as their favorite James Bond.

    Likewise, many who grew up with Omega on the wrist of Brosnan & Craig can relate to Omega as Bond's watch. But since I've read some of the books (Fleming wrote Bond wears a Rolex) and grew up with Connery, the Martini (shaken not stirred), Aston Martin, Walter PPK and his Rolex are all part of the mythic persona to me. When they switch in other products, it's pure movie product marketing placement.

    As an aside, Bond drove a Bentley in the books, which was seen in From Russia with Love. But the Goldfinger DB5 is so iconic now, that only an Aston Martin will do. But I did think that Moore's Lotus Esprit (submarine) was really cool back in the day.

    This Seamaster is almost trying too hard to be a James Bond watch. Still very cool though.

    It was also Connery's personal favorite too.

    My favorite from each actor:
    - Goldfinger (Connery)
    - Spy Who Loved Me (Moore)
    - The Living Daylights (Dalton)
    - Goldeneye (Brosnan)
    - Skyfall (Craig)
    Lazenby only had one film, so... :rolleyes:

    I have never ever seen any Craig Bond movies. Something about his face just... I don't know.
    Maybe I should give it a try?

    Most of the Omega Bond watches are like that. If I were to buy one, I prefer the ones that don't have 007 stuff on it, like the Spectre and No Time To Die Seamasters.

    Spectre Seamaster looks great, so I assume James Bond wears this model in the movie then? I only knew of those classic weird bracelet Seamaster 300 diver professionals as James Bond watches, interesting

    The No time to die Seamaster is my favourite. Probably my all time favourite Omega in general.

    Yes he does. It's a gadget watch as well, explodes to save the day. This one is my favorite of the Omega Bonds. @Hubert has one.

    This one is nice, but I feel like they borrowed styling cues from the OG BB58. Like the one you just put a deposit down for, BB58 is a much better value too! :thumbsup:
