After purchasing my first ever gen over 1k dollars, I thought we could give this a go.
I will soon be the proud owner of a 93′-95′ Replica Omega Seamaster Bond 2531.80
I have seen other clubs like tourbillion and casio royale.
I really think we should start an SMP Bond club as I have seen others in community with gen, frankens, and reps of this watch.
I will leave you with this informative quote:
Lindy Hemming, the Oscar-winning costume designer, was responsible for casting 007’s watch in Golden Eye.
She said, “I was convinced that Commander Bond, a naval man, a diver, and a discreet gentleman of the world would wear the Replica Omega Seamaster with the blue dial.”
Yeah it’ll suck to loose your watch so long but well worth it when it gets back. Finding these 2531’s in clean condition is a bit of a challenge. These days they generally look like Thrashers in terms of aging.
I like the multiple strap options you’ve shared. I’ve actually tried them all and grew tired of each one, especially the mesh. Of all their alternate non-metal straps I’ve tired the blue 8500 PO strap was my favourite:
It’s all a matter of preference as some of you have said. I prefer as new as possible. Original blue throughout and white creamy markers, but that’s only because my personal watch box situation is all ceramic Rolexes and a near new SMP chrono. If I had a mix of vintage pieces my perspective would probably be different.
I’ve always disliked the green tingy SMP dials, if I went vintage I’d go with the maxed out aged yellow effect like the OP.
Bought this threeliner new in 2002 and it’s been wreckdiving, cavediving and nightdiving down to 141 feet in the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans with me since. A watch that goes well in any setting with a T-shirt on, a business- or a divers suit. Aging nicely with some patina now, discontinued and – in the long run, this is on it’s way to become a classic like the sixties 4-digit submariners before it.
