The Bond, James Bond Appeal
The Omega Men’s Seamaster 300M. The Official Timepiece for none other than 007 James Bond. Why is James Bond such a Timeless Icon for Cool.
Could it be his Style… well I definitely think that’s at least part of it.
I think we have all wanted to be James Bond at one point or another in our lives. I myself have been guilty of this in probably one of the the more embarrassing ways.
When I was a teenager obtained my British Citizenship (I have a British Father) flew to the UK and applyed to join the Parachute Regiment.
My plan was to advance to the SAS and after that get a position with her Majesty’s Secret Service (MI5 or MI6…. to be honest I still don’t even know if MI6 is a real department).
I had many reasons to want to join the military and MI5/6 but I would be lying if I said I didn’t lie awake at night dreaming about wearing the suit and watch, carrying a shoulder holstered weapon and flying around saving the world from international terrorist and criminals.
My Life and Desires have changed a lot since then but a couple things have remained the same. First I still Love James Bond Movies and Second If I am going out to dinner with a Supermodel I am going to do it dressed just like James…. minus the gun of course.
