Details of James Bond's watch for the new film "Skyfall"
have emerged online...
James Bond's New Watch
28th March 2012
007's official watch provider Omega have
already announced two limited edition models to celebrate the
50th anniversary of the
James Bond film series, but fans and collectors have been left
to speculate which model Daniel Craig will be wearing in the
new film, "Skyfall".
According to leak on the WatchUSeek website, which was subsequently
removed, the "official Bond watch is a 38.5mm Aqua Terra
with a blue dial. Reference number will be 126.96.36.199.03.001.
Price is EUR 4.050,- (incl 19% VAT). This is the watch he wears
in the movie." An Omega authorized dealer, Ace Jewelers,
briefly listed the model matching those details in its 2012 price
list, before the entry was also removed.

Regular readers may recall an odd rumour that
Omega were going to match the colour of the watch to Daniel Craig's
photographs of location shooting also seem to confirm the information.
MI6 has seen price lists issued to Omega dealers and can confirm
the information is accurate and the watch has an estimated
launch date of August 2012.
The official Omega website and catalogue does not include the "Skyfall" model
(184.108.40.206.03.001) yet, but they do
list the model's close
relation (220.127.116.11.01.001) which appears to be identical
except for the black watch face.
