< Special edition >
In a series of heroic adventures from Dr. No to Quantum of Solace, James Bond outfoxes and destroys a nefarious bunch of evildoers bent on conquering the world. Destroys? Well, not quite. Like Bond himself, true villains live on forever, remembered fondly by their fans, and now by Swatch.
Celebrating the legendary British secret agent’s most memorable adversaries, the Swatch 007 Villain Collection presents 22 Swatch watches inspired by the best of the worst: the bad guys Bond fans love to hate.
More than 45 years have passed since Dr.No debuted on the silver screen in 1962, but the fascination that has nourished the myth of 007 shows no signs of fading. The 22nd watch in the new collection is a fitting tribute to Dominic Greene, the latest Bond villain.
This darkly elegant Swatch Chrono Plastic presents the distinctive mark of Dominic Greene on a black silicon strap with ivory silicon inserts leading up to the matt black plastic case, which has ivory chrono pushers and a matt black crown. The silicon loop features the famous 007 pistol logo and the words ‘Greene Planet’ appear in ivory on the 6 o’clock side of the strap.
Mounted on the case are a rotating black plastic bezel with silver Arabic numerals and a white tachymeter scale on the narrow black flange. Subtly printed on the glossy black dial we find the mark of Greene again. Tapered silver hour and minute hands with superlite white highlights and a central chrono seconds hand mark the time.
