A one-of-a-kind piece: gold bracelet, gold case, gold dial, gold hands, gold. Created by Omega to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of James Bond epic Goldfinger. Not gold? The OMEGA Master Co-Axial calibre 8501 (more on “Master Co-Axial” below) revealed through the transparent crystal caseback. The rotor is gold, though!
The words engraved on the 18K yellow gold ring around the transparent caseback further distinguish the unique nature of the watch:
GOLDFINGER | 50TH ANNIVERSARY | UNIQUE PIECE | ANTI-MAGNETIC | >15,000 GAUSS
This exquisite timepiece was sold for 106,000 CHF ($113,000) Wednesday, September 17 as part of an online auction that celebrated the renowned 007 film. GOLDFINGER!
Truly a special piece, helped a lot by the fact that Omega did not overdo the 007 branding on it – subtle and tasteful!
