WOW! I LOVE IT!............ Just kidding, I think they pushed this one too far with the QOS on the dial and the carbon fibre. I like what they did to the Casino Royale LE, very subtle, just a tinge on the sweep sec and the caseback minting. This one...........just too loud

I don't like it either but wow, you guys get excited easily. :roll:
It's just a limited run. Close your eyes and count to 10. Try and breath deeply, it will all be over soon.
You can go back to enjoying the standard PO now.

Oh come on! As soon as someone buys one and posts it, everyone will say "Nice watch".
...that's true. But that is because only people who like the ugly duck are posting... plus maybe a few friends, family and paid ghostposters... ;-)

Don't you think it would be rather rude to publicly denigrate someone's (thoroughly hideous) new love? :rodekaart

I really don't like this kind of marketing. A lot of films these days are like one big, long marketing film for various products - usually in the luxury bracket. Cars and watches being the obvious and most prolific example. It really turns me off.
That's just the way things are done nowadays. As unpleasant as it is, it isn't going to stop.

By the way, did you know that Die Another Day was the first film to receive its entire budget, not from the film studio, but from product placement? Sony, Omega, Phillips (Norelco in the US) and Ford. These companies must have a big part in how their products are used during filming. Take this little nugget of info taken from www.mi6.co.uk

Only five cars in the entire movie do not belong to either Ford or Ford's Premier Automotive Group (Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo). There are two Ferrari F355's, a Porsche 911, a Mercedes SL and a Lamborghini Diablo. All of these cars (except possibly the Merc) get damaged / destroyed / dropped out of the back of a plane. None of the Ford's get damaged at all*. It is also worth noting that none of the other manufacturers cars are examples of the latest models, whereas Ford is using all of it's latest or prototype models.

*Except perhaps for the Zao's Jaguar

As for the PO, if the QOS legend was removed, it is actually a nice watch. How come they've drop the 007 logo from the seconds hand? The CR LE PO was nice and subtle. The CR SMP LE was just bloody awful. The gun barrel swirl was the wrong way round to start with. The best Bond LE has to be the 40th Anniversary model.

I'm a hardcore Bond fan, but I wouldn't wear that. It's like the 2531.80. I loved wearing that one because of the Bond connection for one, but I wouldn't have worn the special edition.
Like-wise, Torrid. Perfectly said.:-!

Strange they are using the 45. In QOS bond wears a 42.
Unless they're gonna do the old let's-have-Bond-wear-TWO-watches-in-the-movie-like-we-did-with-"Casino-Royale" trick.

Complete pile of ****e.

They've just cheapened the PO for me. What makes them dream up crap like this Drugs?
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I would have to say this is the one thing about Omega that I don't like. And that version of the PO is gross.
Yep, Jarrod, Omega seem to be releasing limited editions to commemorate just about anything. I just heard they're releasing a new Speedmaster at Basel next year to celebrate 3 years of me owning a 1993 Toyota Corolla hatchback. You heard it here first.
How ya been, anyway?

The irony of it is 'hard core Bond fans' as you guys call them, want to wear the watch that BOND wears, not these kid's toys.
As a 'hard-core Bond fan' , I like the idea of wearing the same watch as Bond wears, just as Bond fans in 1968 would have worn a Rolex Submariner. You're right TSC, these Limited Editions are kid's toys, but I have been amazed at how well they tend to sell. When my store got the first of the Ltd Ed Bond Seamasters to celebrate "40 Years of James Bond" back in 2002 (when "Die Another Day" came out) , I thought we'd be stuck with them forever. They sold out within a few months to customers who told me they wouldn't never dream of spending that sort of money on a watch.
Having said that, I still have 2 "Casino Royale" 45mm Planet Oceans in my store. They might sell next week, they might sell next year, they might sell next century. I've given up trying to figure out the fickle customer's way of thinking. Perhaps Omega knows something that we don't...nah.

Teeritz, did the ones with the gun barrel on the dial sell? Was it just because that was the only Bond one around at the time? I still see them now for sale in jewellers, along with the new one. Both sell for about £1700GB.

Congrats on the 3 years!b-)

If I were to make a LE Bond watch, I'd simply put 007 on the back of the case with special packaging. Any serial that ends with "007" would get the 007 second hand (with the original color).

Personally, I'd rather have the one he actually wears.
