James Bond’s Choice
James Bond is a man of refined taste. Between his Aston Martin, his Sunspel Polos and a closet full of Tom Ford suits, Bond prefers the very best.
The fictional British secret agent, otherwise known as 007, has been portrayed by seven different actors over the course of 60 years. Where most on-screen portrayals of the character emphasized a smooth and buttoned-up spy with perfect hair at all times, it was only the most recent actor's portrayal that highlighted a tenacious, rough around the edges and all business version of Bond — that actor was Daniel Craig.
Between 2006 and 2021, Craig quickly rose among the ranks of actors that have played James Bond. Barely relying on the ingenuity of Q Branch, Craig’s character met each henchman, assassin and villain with sheer brute force and the tools available to him in his immediate environment — remember when he used a Caterpillar 320D L hydraulic front end loader to fight the villain in the opening sequences of Skyfalll?
In his final James Bond film, No Time to Die, audiences were finally treated to several high-tech gadgets that they had been waiting for - including the use of his Omega Seamaster 300M which doubled as an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) to disable electronic devices (and to dispatch at least one final boss).
In this particular Omega ad curated by our friends over at Ad Patina, Daniel Craig is James Bond doing James Bond things. He is confidently wearing a tailored gray suit, shades donned, strolling away from the gorgeous Aston Martin V8 Vantage first seen in the 1987 James Bond film, The Living Daylights. He’s also wearing the Omega Seamaster 300M 007 Edition which is showcased on the ad’s periphery and dubbed in red text as, “James Bond’s Choice.”
This 2021 ad was previously 2 pages and precisely connected and cropped to fit this custom 21” x 15 1/2” solid wood frame with black painted finish. It features a custom-measured, hand-cut 4-ply border in a shade of white, as well as moulding with blue finish, complimenting all the ad tones. Every material used is acid-free and the glass is anti-reflective and offers UV-protection to keep this precious ad preserved no matter where you decide to hang it. Speaking of which, hanging your newly purchased ad is a seamless task, as this particular frame comes with an additional hanging wire and felt pads for wall protection.
This ad marks the end of Daniel Craig’s tenure as James Bond and features quite possibly the coolest Omega Seamaster 007 edition worn by Craig in any of his films.
If you agree, why are you still reading this? Q-Branch discontinued this ad in 2021, so don't expect to see too many more floating around!
