Från Nick Hackos nyhetsbrev: For the last couple of months, I've noticed a strange new trend: some of you have started collecting Omega James Bond Seamasters. And by 'collecting' I mean stockpiling. Quite frankly, this is a bit weird. A typical scenario: someone will walk into our shop wearing a blue SMP. "Do you have an Omega James Bond?". My answer: you've already got one - are you now looking for a present? It turns out (on at least 3 occasions so far) that the buyer is looking for EXACTLY the same model he already has. Reason: there is a strong belief that Omega prices will continue to rise, and the new SMP are going to be beyond the reach of the 'average Joe Bloke' or disappear completely of the market. Of course, I would perfectly understand the need to upgrade from a quartz to an automatic or from a 10 year old one to a "like brand new" piece, but I am a bit bugged with twins and even triplets. Your explanation: you are piling them up because James Bond blue is a great robust everyday watch. Which is fair enough, and quite honestly, a very valid reason to buy one in the first place. Or a few more, if you wish so.
