^^^ I also saw one this week in the boutique. The bracelet is nice UNLESS YOU WANT 007 PLASTERED ON THE CLASP. :D

I also looked at the standard SM300 Master Coaxial and the guy told me that he would get the bracelet brushed for no charge.

Yes I noticed the 007 bit on the clasp, which I didn't like, but preferable to it being spashed all over the dial!

It's the marketing I think you'll find we dislike to inflate prices on items I.E Omega , Aston Martin & about a thousand other items they slap 007 on lol.

I'd hardly say the 007 logo is splashed/plastered all over the watch. From the ones I've seen the logo is subtly added to the dial, caseback and/or clasp. If Omega is on to a sure winner here (as is the customer for purchasing an investment) then who can blame them for knocking out a few extra limited editions. I'd snap one up if I had that kind of money, but then again being a big Bond fan I am somewhat biased.

I think most Brits like Bond (and most watch fans like Omega) Blowfish, really.

Bond movies are fine, so are Omegas, but it is bloody uncool in the extreme to slap 007 all over a watch, FFS! :thumbdown:

Haha. I guess this is subjective.

And of course, completely subjective. I would love it if they resurrected the Humphrey Bogart Longines, but if they stamped Mr Rick or Casablanca all over the dial I would certainly give it a wide birth.

I can certainly agree with you there Avo. But now it's out there, watch this space! ;-)
