Dr No viewed the new Bond at the LA Omega boutique . . .

. . . last night.

Our Captain has already taken the plunge; not sure if there are others here contemplating acquisition, but a visit to your local boutique or authorized dealer would be worth your while in my humble opinion.

The development I'm unable to show was a prototype of a Speedmaster commissioned for American special forces.  I saw it briefly on the wrist of the President for Omega retail operations.  It apparently was (and I could be wrong about this) based on Speedmaster 57 with a totally brushed steel case, grey NATO strap, and (Flightmaster fans, take note!) yellow and orange subdial hands.  Unfortunately, they will not be released to the general public.  Many years from now, maybe one or two will seep into public domain from special operators or their descendants.  I probably won't be collecting then, but hope to see one in circulation eventually. 


Curious to see the special Speedie you mentioned, Don Turo.

We'll have to wait for an official press release from Omega . . .

. . . as photography was prohibited, Nicolas. 

If you're asking would I buy one, the answer is 'maybe', in the same sense as the lady in the diplomat and the lady joke.


Hehehe, good one, Amico. ;)

I think there’s at least 4 who took the plunge…

I’m one of them 🙌🏻

Why . . .

 By: Dr No : March 18th, 2023-22:40

Man, that is a very pretty watch 👍

Because of the lack of date? :)

Weren't you aware that Occam's Razor has officially received a corollary . . .

. . . in Nico's Test?


The screws in the caseback…decorative?

That it is, Cap. I tried the new Bond on . . .

 By: Dr No : March 21st, 2023-20:13
. . . and was favorably impressed with how it wore on my wrist. 


Hello dear Art! Thank you so much for sharing …

…  your experience visiting the Omega Boutique.

The new Seamaster Bond 60th Anniversary is very interesting specially for fans of 007. As you may imagine I ordered one but this watch as well as the Ultra Deep are much delayed in my country due to the big economic crisis here. Omega representatives here say I need to be patient.

Interesting what you tell about the Speedmaster for American Special Forces members.

Regrettably those won’t be available for us but as you well say in the future a few will show up in the market but I also feel I won’t be collecting regrettably. Lol!!

Best, Abel
