Swatch Collection Inspired by James Bond's Villains

Aug 08, 2008
Fans of James Bond are well-aware that the legendary spy has long given his preference to Omega watches, and the Seamaster collection in particular.

No doubt, James Bond fans would be really excited if they found out that now James Bond's adversaries are to have their own watches, too.

Swatch, a famous maker of Swiss fashion watches, has created a whole new collection of watches dedicated to enemies of Agent 007 of Her Majesty's Secret Service. The collection is dubbed the Swatch 007 Villain Collection.

Why would Swatch ever come up with the idea of creating a watch collection for villains? The answer is simple - James Bond would not exist without his powerful enemies, as villains and their henchmen are all important in Ian Fleming's novels and the James Bond movies.

The Swatch 007 Villain Collection is inspired by the most memorable Bond's adversaries, real outlaw heroes, dangerous and nasty, armed to the teeth and ready to kill, such as Dr. No with his metal hands and Oddjob and his deadly bowler.

The Swatch 007 Villain Collection honors most famous outlaw actors, too:

  • Christopher Walken's malicious Max Zorin gets his stylish Retrograde;

  • Gerd Froebe's Goldfinger is to wear an oversized golden Irony THE Chrono;

  • Lotte Lenyas Rosa Klebb has a pair of knuckle-dusters together with an Irony Lady;

  • Paying tribute to Casino Royale, impassive villain Mads Mikkelsen (alias Le Chiffre) gets an Irony Big with an Ace of Spades.

More details about the collection will be available after it is unveiled in early September.

According to Nicolas Hayek, founder and head of the Swatch Group, nicknamed Dr. Swatch, 'Omega is James Bond's watch of choice, but real villains prefer Swatch'.
