By combining all six James Bond actors into one single face, which could be considered the perfect aesthetic for the role. Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig have each portrayed 007, starting with Connery in Dr. No (1962) all the way to the present day with Craig in Skyfall (2012). To create the final face, they combined the three early Bonds (Connery, Moore, Lazenby) and then combined the three more recent bonds (Dalton, Brosnan, and Craig). The two resulting images were then combined to achieve the finished look.

Bollinger Champagne Pays Tribute To James Bond.


James Bond‘s soft spot for the martini is no secret, but a 50-year anniversary requires champagne. Enter a French brand that has decided to fete the spy’s longevity on the silver screen in style, with a box set titled “Bollinger 002 for 007″.  Inside the case, a silencer-styled box inspired by the accessory on Bond’s Walter PKK pistol houses a bottle of champagne. To access the bottle, you have to enter the code 007 and press the iconic pistol logo that is often seen in the film’s opening credits.  Inside the box lies a bottle (boasting a James Bond design) of Bollinger La Grande Année 2002 – “the most exceptional vintage of the past decade,” according to Mathieu Kauffmann, Bollinger‘s chef de cave. The  ”Bollinger 002 for 007″ box set will go on sale for €150 October 1 in select outlets. Skyfall is due to have in the UK on October 23.

Omega Seamaster James Bond 50th Anniversary Watch.


To celebrate fifty years of James Bond films, Omega is releasing a special update of  their Seamaster Diver 300m James Bond watch.  The watch offers Omega’s caliber 2507 co-axial movement, with the winding rotor designed to look like a bullet. It’s also inscribed with ’50 years of James Bond.’  The James Bond 50th Anniversary watch has been created in two sizes, 41 mm and  36 mm. The 36mm case size has a diamond index at the 7 o’clock position.  The 41 mm version is being produced in a limited edition of 11’007 pieces and the 36 mm version in a limited edition of 3’007 pieces.  No mention of price as yet, but as both a classic watch and a limited edition, this is unlikely be one of the cheaper watches on the market.  Interestingly, 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film series — though fifty years ago Bond was not wearing an Omega at all.  The classic timepiece has been worn by 007 in every adventure since GoldenEye, when it replaced the Rolex Submariner.
