Five of the Best Watches Worn by Daniel Craig in Bond Movies
When everything seems to be breaking apart in the film “Bond,” in which Daniel Craig plays a brooding anti-hero who is dark, raw, and grit, the movie hero often feels at peace. The characters of James Bond are said to represent their times, but Craig’s circumstances are unique. In the film industry, terms like “legendary” or “mastery” are frequently overused. However, Daniel Craig’s charismatic, hard-drinking, frequently bumbling 007 has added a much-needed human touch to the role.
Change is unavoidable. Regardless of the changes he might have experienced, the actor’s taste for nice things remains unaltered! He was able to maintain his reputation for wearing traditional timepieces. His unending love for watches has helped several manufacturers achieve recognition and visibility. Rolex, Pulsar, Seiko, and Breitling are just a few of the brands that have gotten a lot of attention.
In honor of the release of No Time to Die, Craig’s final Bond film, let’s take a quick look back at some of the Omega wrist candy he wore during his time as Bond. The highlighted timepieces are listed in chronological order of the years in which the films were released. So let’s get started!
1. Casino Royale, 2006
Co-Axial & Omega Seamaster 300M Craig made his debut in the critically acclaimed Casino Royale fifteen years ago, sporting two Omega watches. The actor’s wrist was precisely fit by the Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Co-Axial, which was somewhat smaller.
2. Quantum of Solace, 2006
The Seamaster Professional Planet Ocean 600M Co-Axial was worn by Daniel Craig. The stainless steel bracelet adds a touch of luxury to this version of the Planet Ocean, which is more sporty than its cousin in Casino Royale. Although Quantum of Solace didn’t receive as many accolades as its predecessor, Craig’s outstanding watch game is the one thing that hasn’t altered!
3. Skyfall 2012
In the film Skyfall, Bond actor Daniel Craig wore a 42mm Steel on Steel Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M watch. The watch was possibly the only thing benign about the film, with no frills, easy legibility, and simplicity. Craig wears a 42mm Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M, which is made entirely of steel.
4. Spectre 2015
The Omega Seamaster 300M “Spectre” limited edition was the first one featured in a Bond film. A gray NATO strap contrasts attractively with a faux-patina dial on this commemorative effort. It has transcended the Bond universe to become a desirable wishlist item among ordinary collectors due to its simplicity.
5. No time to Die, 2021
The Omega 300M Seamaster was inspired by the watch worn by James Bond creator Ian Fleming. It was a complete work of art, with taste and flair expertly combined. Daniel Craig opted for an Omega 309M Seamaster Special Edition Master Co-axial with a titanium bracelet. It has a little arrow head that signifies the British Special Forces and is a homage to James Bond. It’s comfortable to wear; timeless; light; and the perfect complement to a fantastic film series.
