Bond celebrates its 60th with a party and a new watch

Omega drops a new gadget-laden timepiece, and stars line up on the red carpet to commemorate the first Bond film.

It’s been 60 years since Sean Connery graced the screens with the release of the debut James Bond film Dr. No in 1962. To celebrate this momentous occasion, the stars lined the red carpet in London last night, among them, Daniel Craig, Hayley Atwell, Daisy Edgar-Jones, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw, dressed to the nines in tuxedos and glitzy glamour.  

Omega, who partnered with Bond, back in 1995, taking over from Rolex, has assumed the permanent duty of furnishing the English super spy with the ultimate gadget-laden timepieces were on hand to provide the ‘Bond’ factor.

Daniel Craig famously hung up his martini and gun last year with his final performance as James Bond in James Bond: No Time To Die. Although there have been a lot of names thrown in the ring, no word yet, as to who the next Bond will be. 

Lucky for us Bond fans have had no shortage of 007 stories to keep them occupied. Post-Ian Flemming, there have been a few authors that have taken on the job of giving extended life to the iconic secret agent. In particular, Anthony Horowitz who has already written the most recent bond novels Trigger MortisForever and a day, and the highly anticipated latest release With a Mind to Kill.
