Stuff we like: Goldfinger 50th Anniversary Aqua Terra
Posted on 18 September 2014
To celebrate 50 years of Goldfinger, Omega have produced a one-of-a-kind Aqua Terra plastered in 18K Yellow Gold. The watch was sold exclusively at an online auction handled by Christie's. The watch performed well exceeding its estimate and the hammer went down at 106,000 CHF (70,000 GBP) on Wednesday 17th September.
This pimped out Aqua Terra has a 'discreet' 18K Yellow Gold case and matching bracelet. There are a few other details on the watch that let you know it is a James Bond limited edition, they are the 007 logo as a counterweight on the second hand and some classy engraving on the case back of the watch, all paying tribute to the occasion. Powered by Omega's ever popular Master Co-Axial movement (8501) making it anti-magnetic >15,000 GAUSS. The watch is presented in a box inspired by the U.S Billion Depository building at Fort Knox and rounds off a beautifully unexpected one off watch from OMEGA. Congratulations to the winner of this auction.
