Agreed. If this had been posted following a discovery on ebay, I would be thinking 'It can't be real, can it?' Very poor taste although I suspect the TOWIE crowd will provide a handy market.

I'm sure, apart from 12 year olds who can't afford it, that there are many 'Adult' 007 wannabe's out there who can and will afford it, blissfully unaware of what a tool they will look :shock:

Not even close to being a good look!! :thumbdown:

i do not understand the point of a watch like this

james bond wouldnt wear an omega with 007 plastered all over it... so why would a fan want to wear one?

surely to be authentic and wear what your hero would wear, you just want a basic standard SMP?

this watch is just chintzy, cheap and tacky. Its right up there with a thundercats watch i used to have back in the 80's.

I may have seen one outside Goldsmiths...bloke explaining to his bored-looking girlfriend which one was the Quantum of Solace watch. Probably couldn't afford it, though, which leads me on to...

I don't think it will be cheap. I'm sure I'll see replicas of it if I go to Turkey this year, though.

You had a Thundercats watch??? lol .....you've got to find a picture and post it up :D

This will be dearer than other SMP's asthey'll have to include whatever license fee they had to pay to use the 007 logo :silent:

+1 ......about the thundercats watch - i'd love to see that! My brother had a transformers watch. You had to change it from Starscream (fighter jet) to a robot to see the time, was :cold:er than 8)

...caseback on this bond version is best so far though :-"
