Omega Seamaster 300M “James Bond” — Real Vs. Fake

HomeVideoOmega Seamaster 300M “James Bond” — Real Vs. FakeVideoOmega Seamaster 300M “James Bond” — Real Vs. Fake These fakes are getting better every day. We'll show you how to tell the difference! play video by Robert-Jan Broer June 23, 2020 MIN READOmega Seamaster 300M “James Bond” — Real Vs. FakeToday, we’re taking a look at an authentic Omega Seamaster 300M and a very high fidelity replica. It used to be very simple to tell the difference. Fakes were cheap knock-offs. They often made obvious mistakes. Many of the key details were wrong. Sometimes, everything was wrong. But in today’s world, replica watches are getting better and better. Sometimes, they are awfully close to the original.
The fake Omega Seamaster 300M James Bond limited edition for the 50th anniversary of “On her majesty’s secret service” we have here, is being offered online for prices that come very close to 25% below retail. And it is being offered as an authentic watch. So this is not a watch for those who w..

Interview With James Thompson, AKA Black Badger

HomeInterviewsInterview With James Thompson, AKA Black BadgerInterviewsInterview With James Thompson, AKA Black Badger From watches to coffee to cars and back again… by Rob Nudds June 18, 2020 MIN READInterview With James Thompson, AKA Black BadgerThe watch industry, like its products, has a lot of moving parts. Millions of people around the world play their part in bringing our interest to life. But it is true that some people play a much more visible role in the task than others. Those characters that come to define eras of watchmaking should be championed. They should be listened to, learned from, and respected. Even if they did name themselves after a badger…
If you’ve never met James Thompson, you should probably stick it on your to-do list. I don’t mean in a creepy, stalker kind of way. I mean in a nice, dignified, organic kind of way (like “accidentally running into him” at an event). Please, please, please, do not board a plane for Stockholm and spend weeks traipsing around t..

Pre-Owned Picks — James Bond Watches From Omega, Rolex, and Seiko

HomePreowned PicksPre-Owned Picks — James Bond Watches From Omega, Rolex, and Seiko Preowned PicksPre-Owned Picks — James Bond Watches From Omega, Rolex, and Seiko Our selection of pre-owned offers for week 10 by Robert-Jan BroerMarch 06, 2020 MIN READPre-Owned Picks — James Bond Watches From Omega, Rolex, and SeikoYesterday it became clear that the newest James Bond film “No Time To Die” will be postponed by seven months. Since we’re being forced to wait until November for our next Bond fix, we thought we’d step in with a solution. This week’s pre-owned selection is all about some of the watches that 007 wore over the years.
In the James Bond novels, 007 wore a Rolex. The brand was a favorite of his creator Ian Fleming (who famously wore an Explorer). In the movies though, James Bond wore a lot of different brands until 1995, when Omega took over. As such, I’ve compiled a small selection of watches that James Bond wore over the years. All of these models are available pre-owned on Chr..

Oris James Morrison Academy Of Music Limited Edition

HomeWatch ReviewOris James Morrison Academy Of Music Limited Edition Watch ReviewOrisOris James Morrison Academy Of Music Limited Edition Oris turns the class up to 11 with a jazz-influenced model from its Artelier collection by Ben HodgesFebruary 13, 2020 MIN READOris James Morrison Academy Of Music Limited EditionWe previously announced the Oris Artelier James Morrison Academy of Music on Fratello here. And now we have the chance to test drive it on the wrist. The Acadamy of Music slots into the existing jazz collection, but this time, it is inspired by a living trumpeting legend, James Morrison.
After the announcement, and the excellent article by my fellow Fratello, Andreas, on the Art Blakey, I just had to get my hands on this piece. I applaud Andreas for combining the Oris Art Blakey review with his passion for percussion. I’m a guitarist, and although I’ve chosen a piece intended for a trumpet player, James Morrison regards himself as a multi-instrumentalist. I’m hoping that cov..

Swatch Reveals The New James Bond Watch Collection

HomeWatch ReleasesSwatch Reveals The New James Bond Watch Collection Watch ReleasesSwatchSwatch Reveals The New James Bond Watch Collection But is it to die for? by Rob NuddsFebruary 12, 2020 MIN READSwatch Reveals The New James Bond Watch CollectionThank goodness for Swatch. Whenever we might find ourselves taking everything a bit too seriously, everyone’s favorite plastic-peddler shows up with a joyous dollop of color to remind us that watchmaking is supposed to be fun. The new James Bond collection is exactly that.
The new James Bond film, No Time To Die, will mark Daniel Craig’s final outing as the British super-sleuth. To mark the occasion, Swatch has released six new watches. There’s some low-hanging fruit (hello Moonraker and Casino Royale), alongside some odder, niche choices (who would’ve predicted Licence to Kill and The World Is Not Enough making the cut when this idea hit the drawing board?).
Six new models will hit the market towards the end of February, a few weeks ahead ..

Meet The James Bond Superyacht Concept That Can Disappear

For anyone who grew up dreaming of James Bond’s ’63 Aston Martin’ now has something new to dream about—the Carapace. As with any James Bond vehicle, the Carapace will be capable of things beyond the imagination, including disappearing.

Designed by Naval architect Elena Nappi of the Italian shipbuilding company, Fincantieri, the superyacht concept is a hybrid vessel engineered to cruise the high seas above and below water. The 256-foot boat is capable of diving to depths of 985 feet for up to 10 days at a time.

As with any luxury yacht, the Carapace features several beautiful on-deck entertainment areas, including a beach club complete with a pool, a spa, a gym and VIP cabins. However, what makes this dreamboat standout is its aluminum superstructure, which can be completely sealed up so that it can operate underwater. Talk about secret lair, diplomats and business bosses will be able to hold meetings in complete secrecy. When completely submerged, guests and passengers alike will b..

We thought it would be interesting to share some impressions of that event, as Omega also took the opportunity to talk about their connection with military watches.
In the past years, I’ve had many experiences which I would have never had if I would still be working in real estate.
