Occasionally there is some piece of cinematic swag that impresses me so much that I just have to share it with all of you. This would've been much better suited for our own James Bond Week, but alas, we just came across it today. Swatch has debuted a collection of watches called the 007 Villain Collection. The collection features a total of 22 watches for all 22 James Bond movies to date, one for each villain. Given I'm a huge Bond fan, I always already curious, but taking a closer look at these they're pretty damn cool. Whether or not you're a Bond fan or are just in the market for a new watch, you may as well start here.
My personal favorites are the Thunderball one and the On Her Majesty's Secret Service one. In fact, I'm actually considering ordering one or the other (or both). Even if you don't need a watch, all James Bond fans must check this site out. It's really cool to even just scroll through all 22 of them and see they're designs. I'm amazed they did so much research into the intricacies of every last villain. Bravo Swatch.
The prices range from $60 (for Live and Let Die) to $245 (for Moonraker). Or you can buy the entire set of all 22 for $4000. Head to your local Swatch store to pick one up or you can order them online at their store - but they don't seem to have too many left in stock. As I mentioned before, this is a must-see for any Bond fan and I'm glad I came across this (thanks to Cinematical). In the world of movie swag, a lot of it is just plain junk, but Swatch has created something incredibly unique and very impressive - at least I think so. When and if I ever come across any more cool stuff like this, I'll be sure to let everyone know.
