Christie’s Auction Gold Aqua Terra Piece Uniquely Celebrates 50 Years Of Goldfinger

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.

Our Gift To You-Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Golf Replica

Omega gave us the opportunity to use one of the Golf Edition models of their 2017 Omega Aqua Terra Replica Watches line up. I happily accepted it as my 52Mondayz watch for this week.

Nice about the Sergio Garcia model on the black-green NATO strap, is that this watch is only available in this Golf Edition. It’s the only Swiss Made Omega Aqua Terra with an anthracite dial combined with green print and a green second hand. The Rory McIlroy variation on the black-orange NATO is available in the regular Aqua Terra collection as well. Looking at the Omega website it’s indicated as ‘Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra 150M Co-axial Master Chronometer 41mm Golf Edition’. I’m glad Omega didn’t put that all in the dial.

Omega positioned this watch in the Seamaster collection. Just like for instance the Planet Ocean, the Railmaster, and the Diver 300M. Within the Seamaster collection it’s named an Aqua Terra 150M, immediately indicating that the watch is made 150 meters waterproof. And then it’s a special Golf Edition within the Aqua Terra 150M Fake Watches For Sale series. Remains the indication Co-axial Master Chronometer and 41mm, which informs about the movement and the diameter of the casing.

Although very suitable for a sports Omega Replica Watches, and beautifully matching the colors of the dial in this watch, I’m not sure if I would always wear it with the supplied NATO-style nylon strap. I can imagine that in the long term a nice leather strap or even a stainless steel bracelet might be more comfortable. Of course looks are important, however putting a watch on every day benefits from some comfort as well. The strapping and closing of a NATO strap needs some skills. During mornings I find myself a bit lazy when it comes to putting on a watch.
