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.

New 41mm Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra Replica Review

Omega introduced to us a new line-up of Aqua Terra Replica watches. The dial changed and the case shape is become different: symmetrical instead of a-symmetrical. It seems to be the main problem for some watch brands these days, including Omega, to have their watches hit the market in a timely manner after its introduction during one of the big shows. Anyway, these are first world problems and no lives depend on these kind of things.It has a grey dial with blue hands and hour markers give a wonderful contrast and comes on the stainless steel bracelet with polished center links. Inside, we’ll find the in-house developed caliber 8900 movement.

Anyway, the 41mm Omega Seamaster Replica Watches   symmetrical case is very handsome and feels great on the wrist. I have fairly large wrists, and I am very comfortable with the 41mm case diameter of this Aqua Terra 2017 model. The lugs have this polished finish on top, and a satin finish on the sides. The watch is quite ‘flat’, so it sits nicely on the wrist. The crown shows the same patter as the case back, as you can see on the picture below.

At 6 o’clock you will find the date aperture, with a trapezoid shape. The white date disc gives enough contrast with the grey dial and the printing on the date disc is in black. One of the disadvantages of the caliber 8900 Omega Replica Watches Swiss Movement– in my opinion – is the lack of a quickset for the date. By turning the independent hour hand with the crown in first position, you can quickly advance the date of course, but not as quick as a dedicated crown position for the date feature. It is a matter of getting used to I guess, but I – for instance – swap watches regularly and each time I take my personal watch with this caliber 8900 it kinda annoys me.

In all fairness, I think this bracelet is pretty well done. However. I prefer the look of the blue rubber strap with the center metal piece a bit over the all stainless steel bracelet I have here. Then, the watch is also available on an alligator strap. The rubber strap emphasized the sportive character of the watch and make it suitable for almost all conditions.
