And so now we know. After months of speculation, the 24th James Bond film has been announced. The film will be titled SPECTRE, which older Bond fans will remember as the name of the criminal organisation bent on world domination, and from whom Connery saved us all during the swinging 60’s. Seven points if you know what SPECTRE stands for – no Googling!
After yesterday’s press conference, we know a lot of things about the film now. Daniel Craig returns for a fourth outing directed by Skyfall’s Sam Mendes; he’ll drive the luscious Aston Martin DB10 and face off against Christoph Waltz’s villainous Oberhauser. Backing up the super spy will be Ralph Fiennes’ M, Naomie Harris as Miss Moneypenny and Bond girls Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux.
However there’s only one question on our lips: which watch will he wear? Previously on this blog we’ve studied the long, illustrious heritage of Bond’s watches in the movies, from the classic Rolex Submariner to Roger Moore’s Seiko. But the secret service that is EON Productions is keeping us in the dark on which brand will grace 007’s wrist in the next film, due for UK release on October 23rd 2015.
The fair bet’s on Omega – after all, he’s been wearing them since 1995’s GoldenEye, starting with the Omega Seamaster Professional. In Skyfall Daniel Craig’s Bond wore both an Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean and Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra. Omega is a good fit too, given James Bond rose through the ranks to Commander of the Royal Navy.
And, frankly, we can’t wait to find out which watch Bond, James Bond will be wearing when SPECTRE unveils. In fact, you could say that when news of his latest timepiece hits it’ll leave us shaken, not stirred.
