OMEGA OMEGA has been producing its classic Seamaster chronograph since 1947 and it is perhaps most famously associated with the 007 movies. When Daniel Craig reprised his role as James Bond in Quantum of Solace, he was wearing an OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean 600m Co-Axial Chronometer with a black dial – a subtle departure from the blue dials of previous Bonds. Apart from the 45.5mm model, Omega has produced a 37.5mm wide for women as well as 10,007 James Bond Limited Editions.

EBEL➔ With memorable


advertising featuring the likes of Madonna’s hennaed hand and Gisele Bündchen stretched out on a king-sized bed wrapped only in a sheet, Ebel knows how to make a statement. The Tekton, the youngest member of their classic 1911 series, follows on from the success of the Discovery and the BTR. With a titanium case, black rubber bezel and strap, the Tekton is super light and super smart. www.ebel.com


ROLEX Generally regarded as the original professional dive watch, the Submariner was launched in 1953 and remains the most iconic and certainly the most copied Rolex in the company’s 100-year history. The design has changed little apart from subtle upgrades – this first-ever watch to be guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 100m can now withstand pressure of up to 300m. With legendary toughness and dependability, this undisputed classic has been a favourite of many a James Bond, and looks just as good with a tuxedo and a dry martini as it does with a wetsuit and a torch. www.rolex.com


BLANCPAIN Established in 1735, this master watch manufacturer is renowned for its horological complications. With world firsts such as the smallest movement (in 1984) and the thinnest (in 1989), it has created yet another in 2011 with the Villeret Timezone 30 minutes Demi-Savonette, the world’s first half- hour time-zone watch. Perfect for travellers, this complication is simple to use as all the adjustments are made by using the crown. When the red gold half-hunter case-back lid is opened, the beautiful rotor with guilloche finish and sapphire crystals can be admired. www.blancpain.com
