2012 has a lot in store for us. Besides being the Year of Dragon, we also saw Bacardi making grandeur preparations for its 150th anniversary with limited-edition rum and worldwide parties. As it turns out to be 2012 also marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film series. Omega is celebrating this with a special edition James Bond 50th anniversary watch which is in the Seamaster series.
The watch here uses a “007” theme on the black lacquer dial with “50” filled in with red on the outer bezel, and uses Omega’s caliber 2507 co-axial movement. The winding rotor gives one an impression of a bullet is inscribed with “50 years of James Bond.” The watch is sized at 41mm and only 11,007 will be rolled out on the shelves earlier this year. if you think, the number is not all that small at all for a limited-edition tag for that is roughly 2.5 times the yearly production of A. Lange & Sohne, worldwide. I hope the makers are not using limited edition as a disguise to charge over-the-roof prices for products which are not actually running a limited number.
