James Bond Sunglasses Skyfall
The Tom Ford Marko FT0144 James Bond Sunglasses Skyfall
The Tom Ford Marko FT0144 glasses worn by James Bond in Skyfall have been a hot topic for a while now. This is the first time that Tom Ford has made glasses for a 007 movie and they were an instant hit.
The movie was very popular when released on DVD/Blu-ray, so it’s only natural to want to own these authentic pair of sunglasses as part of your 007 collection if you missed it in theaters. So without further ado, let’s look at the James Bond Sunglasses Skyfall By Tom Ford and see why they look so damn cool!
The question is, are the pair worn by Daniel Craig in Skyfall real Tom Ford glasses or just a cheap replica? And how can you be sure that you’re buying the genuine article? Read on for detailed photos and my analysis of the sunglasses seen throughout Skyfall .
From what I can tell, these are 100% real Tom Ford Marko FT0144 sunglasses. The lenses are dark green and the serial number of 007 is printed on the inside of both arms. A square black case with the ‘Ford’ logo embossed in gold is provided to store your glasses. It seems that this case is specific to the Markos, as it does not resemble the Tom Ford cases that come with most of their other sunglasses.
Other than being a promo item from Bond’s wardrobe, I am unsure what this case is for. This certainly isn’t something I have seen available online or at any store so don’t use it as an indicator of whether you have the real thing.
The glasses do come with a Tom Ford authenticity card, which has care instructions printed on one side and 007’s signature on the other. What is interesting about this card is it says “Only available at Tom Ford boutiques worldwide.” This leads me to believe that these were not given out to just anyone. I wonder what the distribution process was like and if we will ever get to see any unopened boxes in the future?
THOM FORD MARKO FT0144
If you’ve been following Tom Ford’s line of sunglasses, you’ll know that these glasses are part of their newest series called “Marko.” This new line is a flat metal design with a keyhole bridge, where the rubberized arms attach to.
The original FT0144 sunglasses retail for $365 at Tom Ford boutiques and online on their website, but shop around and you can usually get these cheaper.
What About A New Watch?
Why not go the whole hog and invest in a new watch too, while we’re looking at the Stylish James Bond character.
James Bond Omega Seamaster SkyfallSkyfall
The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Skyfall is a milestone in the 50 year history of James Bond films. For the third time in this series, Omega was commissioned by EON Productions to create a limited edition watch for James Bond. The previous two watches featured in Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale have both been timepieces from the Omega Seamaster family of watches.
For Skyfall, Omega once again paid homage to the history of the James Bond series with a limited edition Seamaster watch which is a recreation of the watch worn by Sean Connery in Goldfinger. It is an iconic watch within the very tradition-rich James Bond series. I’m sure you’ll fall in love with a James Bond Omega Seamaster Skyfall watch as these are limited editions.
The watch is a 45.5 mm chronometer with helium escape valve and 904L steel bracelet, it has an attractive dial which appears “nuclear blue” when illuminated by ultraviolet light. The second time zone is set using the rotating bezel on the side of the case which also provides protection for its scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating.
The watch has a power reserve indicator, with a date window at 4 o’clock and is water resistant down to 600 metres (2000 ft). Like all Omega Seamaster watches it features the distinctive Seahorse logo on its face and has specially designed co-axial chronometer grade movement which is chronometer-certified by the Swiss Official Chronometer Testing Institute (COSC).
As with the other James Bond limited edition watches, this Seamaster is limited to 7,007 pieces. The James Bond Limited Edition Omega Seamaster Skyfall really is eyecatching!
The watch can be seen throughout Skyfall worn by Daniel Craig as Agent 007; first on the iconic pre-title sequence where he makes his spectacular leap from a rooftop in Istanbul onto the roof of a train speeding through the countryside, and later in Scotland where he wears it during much of the film’s exciting finale.
So there you have it! The Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M Skyfall limited edition watch featured in the James Bond film; “Skyfall”.
This is one stellar timepiece. This article really doesn’t do it much justice, but to see more pictures of this watch you can check out Omega’s official page here .
