Last week, Christie’s hosted an online auction to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the third Bond movie “Goldfinger.” The film was first released in 1964. With all the proceeds going to NSPCC, online bidders spend huge sums of money trying to snatch James Bond’s landmark memorabilia. Omega has provided its own contribution for this auction, which is a unique crystal stone of 18k gold. The watch’s pre-auction is valued at 12,000 – 18,000 CHF. Did you finally realize the price? 106,000 Swiss francs.
Since 1995, GoldenEye, Bond has tied an Omega-3 wrist, while the Omega has produced limited edition watches to celebrate the partnership, such as the planet’s oceans. Although this section may be “limited” to 5007 pieces, but Goldfinger Best Aqua Terra Replica Watches is indeed unique, like a product designed specifically for this auction. Some details distinguish this water from other lands, including a rather unusual dial.
One of the most memorable scenes in The Finger is actress Shirley Eaton covered with gold (paint). This is a short and powerful image that eventually appears in movie magazines and posters. Omega did not mention that this is a dial inspiration, but the organic, loose leaf of course reminiscent of the iconic scene. In reality it is a sapphire crystal under 18k gold.
The gold theme runs through the entire watch, with a 18k gold case (38.5mm), a bracelet, and an engraved winding rotor visible through the exhibition box. Even his hands are made of gold, including the reflexive weight of “007.” In addition, the design of the display cabinet of this watch is inspired by Fort Knox’s U.S. gold nugget store, which is at the heart of the film.
In the special Aqua Terra Replica, there is an Omega Master Coaxial caliber 8501. It is the only element in the watch that lacks gold, except for the weight of the spin. It’s a 15,000 Gauss watch, just as we show it here for you, it’s made to the chronometer’s specifications. Therefore, if the new owner decides to wear a watch every day, there will be some practicality.
