OMEGA celebrated Bond's fiftieth anniversary with the launch of two commemorative limited edition watches and a selection of iconic props from every 007 film at its new store in London's Stratford Westfield today. If you’re in the UK capital over the next few days then head over to the store because it's an incredible opportunity to see props from all of Bond’s 22 missions so far. You can get an up-close look at the Parahawk from THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH, the Dom Perignon champagne bottle from DR. NO, a flask bomb used in A VIEW TO A KILL, Jaws’ teeth from THE SPY WHO LOVED ME, Bond’s piton gun from GOLDENEYE and the golden gun from, well, THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN.
The prop showcase continues through Friday February 24th at the OMEGA Boutique at the Stratford Westfield Mall and is open to the public. Check out the pictures in the gallery on this page or visit OMEGA’s website or Facebook page for more details.
The wait is finally over and BOND IN MOTION is now open. With fifty vehicles on display, BOND IN MOTION is the largest official collection of original Bond vehicles the world has ever seen. On display for one year only at the National Motor Museum, this could be your only chance to see these vehicles on display together.
2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film series and the 40th anniversary of the National Motor Museum (and the 60th anniversary of Beaulieu opening its doors to the public) and what better way to celebrate than with the biggest exhibition of James Bond vehicles ever staged?
Alongside the most famous vehicles like the Aston Martin DB5 and the Lotus Esprit S1, there is a host of treasures dating back to From Russia With Love including the elegant Fairey Huntress Speedboat, Goldfinger’s 1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom III, the buzzing autogyro from You Only Live Twice and Octopussy’s screeching Acrostar Jet alongside cars, bikes, trikes, sleds and boats.
Cars used in films starring Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig all feature in the exhibition, and there are a few record-breakers on display too including the Aston Martin DBS Stunt Car from Casino Royale.
