Ever since the 1995 James Bond movie GoldenEye (to first to star Pierce Brosnan), the legendary secret agent has been wearing timepieces created by Swiss luxury watchmaker Omega, all of them part of the Seamaster series. With this relationship firmly established, it comes as no surprise that the same brand has created the piece which celebrates the 50th anniversary of another important Bond film: Goldfinger. And of course, the watch is going to be all about gold.
The case comes in 18-carat yellow gold and is 38.5 mm in diameter, while the dial is also made from the same precious metal, while the gold hands are covered in SuperLuminova. There’s also a 007 logo counterweight on the seconds hand.
The timepiece has at its heart a Swiss automatic Omega in-house Co-Axial caliber 8501, with an 18-carat yellow gold rotor and bridge. It is resistant to magnetic fields greater than 15,000 Gauss. The caseback features the following engraving: GOLDFINGER, 50TH ANNIVERSARY, UNIQUE PIECE, ANTI-MAGNETIC, > 15,000 GAUSS.
This unique wristwatch is presented in a special box inspired by the U.S. Bullion Depository building at Fort Know (another nod the 1964 film). It is now presumably in the possession of a James Bond fan with really deep pockets, as the piece was recently auctioned at a charity event.
