James Bond and Omega
Ever since GoldenEye in 1995, James Bond has been wearing an Omega watch. Penetrate Brosnan was the principal Bond character that included a Seamaster Diver 300M (reference 2541.80).
Although it was reputed that a ton was paid to get Omega in the content of a Bond film, it was really the outfit fashioner Lindy Hemming that proposed to give Bond an Omega watch for GoldenEye.
Hemming said: “I was persuaded that Commander Bond, a maritime man, a jumper, and a prudent courteous fellow of the world would wear this watch rather than the one everybody anticipated that I should utilize.” She added, “My dad had been in the RAF however was cordial with naval force men and I recall as a youngster one frequently visiting us, and he generally wore this OMEGA, which intrigued me – this curiously energetic plan that looked like it was worked for reason. It’s the little subtleties that truly matter.

Costume planner Hemming was likewise answerable for James Bond’s closet and props on Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), The World Is Not Enough (1999), Die Another Day (2002) and Casino Royale (2006).
