Yea, I pretty much thought the "promo photo" looked like someone did it at home. Sure Connery could have owned an Omega, but as you stated he never wore one in a Bond film. If he had I'm sure Omega would mention it in their website section dedicated to Bond...but they make no mention of their watches and Bond films prior to Goldeneye.

Which I shall stick up my butt before ejecting myself from the DB5 and eating the 9mm from the Walther PPK as requested. It's unpleasant, but a guaranteed YouTube hit. Bite me, "Psy". Gangnam style just got old.
Yes, Bond/Connery did wear a Breitling as did a lesser character in the Film Thunderball. Bond's Breitling was equipped with a Gieger counter to detect atomic bombs that were supposedly on board villain, Largo's boat. Bond's is the 2 subdial Breitling shown in this link. http://watchesinmovies.info/movies/thunderball-1965/ There was also a 3 dial Breitling (maybe a Navitimer ...I've never been into Breitlings) worn by a pilot that gets killed early in the film. Bond also wears a Submariner later in the film.
The link I provided mentions watches worn in tons of movies (Bond, Deer Hunter, Glenn Garry Glenn Ross, etc). You can search by movie or watch brand. Someone put a lot of time into that site, there are lots of photos of the watch scenes.
