  • Well Omega, you've done it again!

    i'm all for being in business to make a profit and further your company but F me dead Omega, give it a rest.
    we get it, jimmy bond the fictional movie star wears an Omega sometimes (when he's not wearing Rolex or Seiko plus...bond nerds add here) the pic below shows what to my mind is wrong with some brands today. it's like instagash, twatter & all the other important social media platforms of the day. passing sensations, no substance and cool as feck for a week until the next idiot comes along. you would hope this was designed by a 14yr old but it wont be the case, it will be a feckstack of suits in a room with the goal of peddling yet another tenuously linked watch out to the world for an insane price. 7007 pieces is not limited!

    it's true; watch fans are never the target market for watch makers :cry:
    the ad below clearly states "Omega, we are clean out of ideas so we hawk tat to walts"
    a few special features of this watch include...
    1. the sec hand counter is the bond logo and gun! Ooh, the buyer will be neck deep in panties on that one alone
    2. the 7 on the date window is red? holy moly, i'm off to get my hand lotion.
    3. if you are a special type of retard (the wealthy ones) you can have 1 of only 7 gold cased examples, i give up.
    the worst of it is they will sell and make a killing. if this is what the manufaturers do then you know what, Alan, if you're out there sell your IWC, make a killing mate cos' you're no worse than these shit hawks.

    younger viewers may need to google basildon for ref.

    Always aim to be that man.

    I take it that you're not going to rush out and buy one then John I can't help wondering what a full collection of "Basildon" watches would be worth in say 50 years time
    Preparation and planning prevent piss poor performance

      thats it though, there will never be a full collection.
      there will be the 50-60-70 yr editions, the Jane Bond (has to happen everntually), the bond tuesday (i still laugh at that one)
      i know there are avid collectors out there and it just seems like Omega prey on them. they are capable of some great deigns and this is what they release. :thumbdown:

          Another great DW post :thumbup:

          The title reminds me of this song from 2000, which I never thought I'd ever be quoting from Reading the lyrics now does fit what I imagine Omega's response to this thread would be...


          Oops!...I Did It Again
          Britney Spears





          ...

          Oops, I did it again
          I played with your heart, got lost in the game
          Oh baby, baby
          Oops, you think I'm in love
          That I'm sent from above
          I'm not that innocent

          You see my problem is this
          I'm dreaming away
          Wishing that heroes, they truly exist
          I cry, watching the days
          Can't you see I'm a fool in so many ways
          But to lose all my senses
          That is just so typically me
          Oh baby, oh

          Oops, I did it again
          I played with your heart, got lost in the game
          Oh baby, baby
          Oops, you think I'm in love
          That I'm sent from above
          I'm not that innocent

          ....



          A watch journey that also serves the betterment of others is one worth taking.

              I like it except for the 007 on the second hand. Like having 007 or BMW on your number plate (yes, we can see it's a BMW and no, we don't think you're a bit like James Bond). The custom nato is really nice.
              If I think of something witty, I'll be sure to write it here.

                  It will still be a great watch, but I would just go classic seamaster if buying new. Really it is a bit much. The red 7 would be enough, a once a month reminder that it's 'different'. Wouldn't catch Bond wearing it. Us kiwis are pretty hard on celebrity culture though....which makes us unique. In a positive way.

                      Is that what you do in a Dunedin hotel on a slow afternoon?
