    Better judge yourself, my amazing AD called today...
    I am impressed:
    So light&easy to wear, true Bond-watch without yelling it. Technical qualities of the 8806 are stunning, dial is soooo stylish—you have to see this piece yourself! Photos&videos don’t do any justice. Even though I am a huge Rolex fan, this Seamaster beats the Rolex Sub in every way. Yeah, sub was the original Bond watch, but Seamaster is the Modern era Bond watch. IMO: Best Bond Watch Ever.
    I think this is one of the first Bond Seamasters in Europe!

    Congratulations @FinWatch, great purchase!

    I'm still hankering to kick off my search for a vintage Speedy once funds are in place but I keep coming back to modern, a Globemaster to marry up against my 168.0065 and then your new piece, looks fantastic.

    I think I'm slowly moving away from building a vintage collection to more modern pieces.

    Very nice, I have to re-think this now.


    I have a 300MC , this may pair well with it and the FOIS

    Congratulations! How does the bracelet feel on the wrist? Supple or stiff?

    Still need to see in the metal; i was hoping that 'live' photos would prove the 'vintage patina' to be more subtle, but these pics live pics appear still pretty taupe.

    PS: LUME SHOTS!

    I was looking at the Bond watches yesterday with a friend. Least favorite Bond watch is the PO from Quantum of Solace. The movie title is etched into the crystal. No thank you!

    As far as my favorite, it's hard to go wrong with the original Bond Omega. 5052b821801f8a35de9c19c3a9de27bb.png omega-seamaster-diver-300m-co-axial-41-mm-22208000-l.png

    The roll is very elegant. I am surprised how simple is the package; no accessories&small box compared the usual massive Omega-boxes.
