National Watch & Clock Museum updates James Bond Watches exhibit page

Just over two months from now, "Bond Watches, James Bond Watches" will open at the National Watch & Clock Museum.

With exhibit space reconfiguration scheduled to begin very shortly, more publicly evident changes are already coming as well.

For example, this project moves up to the top of the "Upcoming Exhibit Schedule" page on the NAWCC website with the familiar image of an Omega 2907.50.91 "Casino Royale" Planet Ocean Seamaster BIG SIZE, reflecting an Aston Martin DB5 model in its crystal, replaced by a piece from the complete other end of the Bond spectrum.

A Rolex 1016 Explorer similar to the original literary James Bond wristwatch now dominates.

Descriptive text also highlights one of the true history-making features of the "Bond Watches, James Bond Watches" exhibit. For the first time since Ian Fleming was alive, his personal Rolex and the On Her Majesty's Secret Service manuscript in which he described it as the personal choice of Agent 007 will be together again.

Remember: The ribbon cutting and access for NAWCC Annual Convention attendees takes place on Thursday, June 17, 2010. Open to the general public on Friday, June 18.

James Bond Watches welcomes media inquiries for further information, background, and resources; images; and interviews. [link]

I almost bought one of these but opted for the 1996 Omega Seamaster Professional. Glad I did now, looks a lot less dated that the Heuer, IMO.
