Olga Kurylenko Launches 007 Watch
30th November 2008

Last Sunday, Olga Kurylenko officially introduced the Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean James Bond Limited Edition model at the Omega Boutique in Aoyama, Japan. The Ukrainian beauty, who starred in "Quantum of Solace" with Daniel Craig, was invited by Omega to present the timepiece, which has been released in an edition of 5,007 pieces.

Omega was James Bond’s watch of choice in "Quantum of Solace", the 22nd installment in the most successful film franchise of all time. It marked the sixth film in which the iconic secret agent wore an Omega Seamaster. Daniel Craig reprised the role of 007 which he first played in Casino Royale. "Quantum of Solace", which has already broken numerous box-office records, is set to open in Japan in January 2009.

The Japanese press gathered in front of the Omega Boutique Aoyama as Olga Kurylenko unveiled the new show window decoration featuring Daniel Craig in his role as the world’s favourite spy. Kimono-clad children were on hand to present flowers to the Ukrainian star, who was touched by the warmth of their gesture.

The event also included the inauguration of the James Bond Exhibition on the second floor of the Boutique.

At the Nicolas G. Hayek Center in Ginza, the latest Bond Girl was given the opportunity to try her hand at watchmaking. Kurylenko laughed as she attempted to adjust the tiny parts in a mechanical watch movement as a master watchmaker and a delighted audience looked on.

The day ended with a party at the Cité du Temps situated on the top floor of the building with a riveting view of the Ginza prefecture by night. More than 200 guests joined Omega and special guest Olga Kurylenko, the stunning actress who is carrying on the Bond Girl legacy – nearly as important a part of the film series as 007 himself.
