I’ll pass.

They always make ugly ass Bond LE’s.

Just make the modern 2254 already.

That may have been better as an LE of 007. May have had a slightly better chance of selling them out that way.

I’m not sure which is worse; the ugly crest at 12, or the gold plate on the case.

I feel like this logo looks like more like a toilet flushing than the James bond logo. The 10 o'clock crown (toilet handle) doesn't help.

I think it's to signify that this model is circling the drain.

The Quantum of Solace PO is just a crystal swap away from being great.

They continue to utilize the philosophy that "more is more."

I wonder if these will look a little different down the road than the
renderings make them look right now. But everyone is right, that
dial pattern has an iron-on effect happening with it here, and the
gold almost takes away from the watch it seems. Who knows though,
it may actually look nice when finished guys. :)

Thanks a lot for the news Chris ! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

P.S. You know, am not sure have actually ever seen this movie.
Think I've always just seen bits, and pieces really. Think I will
definitely have to watch it now. Thanks again !!!

I'd be okay with it if they'd delete the stupid faux rifling pattern on the dial. It's atrocious. The gold handset and indices are cool, and the crest at 12 is low-key. The dial kills it.

Doesn’t look like this one is getting much love here. Personally I really like it. Guess it helps that my last name is Bond, and for me the family crest stuff is pretty cool. I grew up thinking 007 was a distant cousin. The James Bond movies (and maybe a couple Indiana Jones) were the only movies I can remember sitting down and watching with my dad as a kid. Not sure if it’s $6500 cool, but guess I’ll see.

Love the Bond movies but not many of the watches including this one.

From what I hear of this upcoming “final” Bond movie I don’t think I’ll be a fan going forward.

I appreciate what they’re attempting to do but I don’t appreciate how it turned out.
