Daniel Craig may be done with his most iconic career turn in James Bond but thanks to Omega he slipped back into the 007 fit for one last celebration in London to honour the super spy’s 60th anniversary. The Swiss watchmaker took the opportunity to also celebrate its partnership with the franchise that started back in 1995 with Goldeneye (although a certain Pierce Brosnan was visibly missing from the festivities). The celebration took place in a top-secret locale that was decorated to look like a hidden den complete with movie props and gadgets from Q’s lab. On the partnership with the watchmaker, Craig said: “It’s been a joy for me to work with Omega in all the films since Casino Royale. James Bond is a character who likes the very best of everything, so it’s always made sense that he would wear something as beautiful and trustworthy as an Omega.”
