SWATCH SPECIAL EDITION - OO7
A brilliant tribute to Oddjob, bowler-hatted henchman to the Midas of malice featured in the memorable Goldfinger, released in 1964.
The heavy gold-coated stainless steel bracelet of this stunning Irony The Chrono features a lightly engraved 007 logo on one of the links that evoke gold ingots leading to the massive, golden, stainless steel case.
Mounted on the case is a golden bezel with engraved minute ring. The brown and gold diamond-patterned dial is circumscribed by a brown flange with a golden minute ring and golden Arabic numerals (05, 10, 15 ... 60) at all hours.
Flush with the flange is a flat outer ring with engraved gold-on-black tachymeter scale. Embossed gold ingot-shaped markers indicating hours 4, 8 and 12 are complemented by applied golden Arabic numerals at hours 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11.
The grooved golden chrono and continuous seconds counters feature black Arabic numerals and black or white indices and black hands. Lustrous golden hour and minute hands with white superlite highlights and a slim white chrono seconds hand mark the time.
