    Does anyone here know all the watches that Bond wore in the movie?

    Also which light blue tie did he wore with the suit?

    My dear friends. the suits were OK. the tuxedo was OK, but no cummerband, but the most revealing scene was that at the runaway of the airport, on top of the Gas tanker. My friends, he wore WHITE SOCKS.
    Sadly to say, James Bond is dead. I still have not recovered from that vision from hell.

    So you prefer that zip up light blue furry thing that Connery wore in Goldfinger.[​IMG]

    One of them is an "O-mee-gah" Planet Ocean. O-mee-gah currently has a "Casino Royale" limited edition Planet Ocean. I believe he also wore a second model, but don't know for certain.

    Brioni was listed in the film credits, so I assume the suits and DJ were by them.

    I liked the tan, peak lapel suit as well, but I didn't really care for the white short-sleeve shirt with epaulettes. However it did seem appropriate to the character as something that a Brit on holiday in the Bahamas would wear - especially one with a military background like Bond.

    As others have stated, his tuxedo shirt had a placket covering the buttons and I actually didn't notice the lack of a cummerbund.

    I also quite liked the more casual look he adopted during the day for some of the scenes - like the look he was wearing on the hotel balcony in Montenegro and the outfit on the boat in Venice. I'm glad to see that Bond can be updated to show that you can look good without wearing a suit everyday.

    EDIT - found a picture of Brosnan in one of my books, which I believe is from The World is Not Enough where he is wearing a similar tuxedo shirt with a placket covering the buttons. Not surprising, considering it was Brioni as well.

    FYI - I realized that I wasn't shocked by that look on Craig because I've had a picture of that (Bond in a Tuxedo) as my screensaver for the past 2-3 months.

    Sorry - light gray, not tan, you are correct.

    Regardless, it was gorgeous. The roll on that suit was perfect. Even though it was only on the screen for a few seconds, my eyes jumped to it.

    And I posted this on the film review thread, but did anyone else notice that the striped shirt he wore near the beginning of the film was too large around the neck, whereas the tux shirt was an absolutely perfect fit?

    I'm surprised so many of you didn't like the movie. That was the best action film I've seen in years. The Bourne Supremacy was the last film in this genre I liked a lot, but I thought this was significantly better. Totally exceeded my expectations, and Daniel Craig in particular was amazing.

    Agreed, he dressed accordingly to the situation. You're not running thru a construction site in a 5k Brioni and Lobb monk strapes (or church's). I like the theme of a rugged kick ass Bond who physically is one of the first who looks like he could actually throw a punch, jux'ed with the elegant/refined sophisticated suave Bond. Bond always dressing for the situation. You wouldn't be wearing a suit and tie on a boat either; that's silly. His casual was perfect.

    Well, you don't seem to be impressed by much at all, no offence.
    None taken, but you probably missed my being imressed with your favorite tailor recently. [​IMG] I happen to dress the same almost every day just changing the color of my suit and shirt, so I can relate to that in a character. I actually liked some of the casual clothes in the movie, but there was nothing as good as the slothing from the early Bonds. Those movies had a lot of style. For me, Brioni just doesn't do it and never has. As far as Craig/Bond/Movie, I love the goofiness of the early Bond movies. The books are terrific and gritty, but the movies should be more fun that this one IMO. It was simply an action movie with an OK plot. Also, I have to say that the Bond girls have gotten much worse lately. Eva Green has a nice, natural body but her face is so-so. Give me Honey Rider or Domino any day.

    Yeah, that was actually a somewhat important plot point. The girl even made a comment that he shouldn't wear off the rack unfitted clothes. Bonds unrefined, not suave, more of a brute of a killer that uses his head. Later on he get his own style.

    "the white short-sleeve shirt with epaulettes."

    i had a problem with this too but it grew on me. I keep wondering if it wasn't supposed to look like the valets at the hotel? what was that first car: a Ford?

    Well, even though I was not a big fan of those particular suits, the idea of dressing bond in the same thing over and over while only changing the color is, well, correct. That was the basic idea in the books anyway.

    I guess the costumes were ok. I thought the movie stunk and that Craig was the worst Bond in history. He is a terrific actor and was great in Munich, but he is no more correct for James Bond than is Whoopee Goldberg.


    I actually went in with the attitude that I thought the movie wouldn't be that good, but he was surprisingly good in his role, which was definitely different than Brosnan, a little bit of Dalton in License to Kill, clearly much colder and more impassionate than previous Bond's, but I thought it was effective. Looking forward to the 2008 edition.

    countdemoney, thanks for the picture of the Casino Royale Special Edition watch, I was wondering what it looked like since I was led to believe it had a rubber strap instead of a metal bracelet.

    [​IMG]

    The other watch is called the James Bond watch which is not the 2531.80 SeaMaster Professional but rather the new improved version using a Omega 2500 Coaxial Movement.

    I just wished this one had the Professional Coaxial Chronometer printed on the front.

    This is the none limited edition:
