Looking Fresh with a James Bond Golden Eye 007 Watch
James Bond is one of the most influential spies in the history of film and literature. In fact, his influence spreads even to real-life espionage and politics. Of course, we can’t forget about the fact that James Bond was also the inspiration for one of the biggest games of the Nintendo 64—and even of all time! GoldenEye is regarded as one of the best in the pantheon of classic Nintendo titles.
In case you’ve been bitten by the bittersweet pangs of nostalgia, worry no more! We have the perfect recommendation for you: the James Bond Golden Eye 007 Logo sports wristwatch.
What is James Bond GoldenEye?
If you’re a true blue Bond fan but had only started with the franchise after the 21st century, here’s a bit of trivia. GoldenEye was Pierce Brosnan’s long-awaited (and long-delayed) debut into the Bond franchise. It was also the first Bond movie of the 90’s. In this particular Bond-venture, our eponymous hero must stop a fellow agent from taking control of a Russian space superweapon that sends electromagnetic waves down to any target on Earth, effectively shutting it down. Squaring against someone who shares the trade as him, the femme fatale (played by Famke Janssen) tested Bond’s skills to the limits.
As for the game of the same name, it’s a first-person shooter developed by Rare. It already goes without saying that it’s based on the movie, so it’s no surprise that the single-player campaign follows Agent 007’s foray in the film. What made the game shine and boom into one of the most popular and bestselling games of the 90’s are its graphics and visuals (that were pretty advanced for its age), diverse & well-made environments, intuitive controls& interface, and noteworthy multiplayer option.
Why Should You Buy this Watch?
Speaking of the interface, one of the coolest and most aesthetically pleasing features of this watch is the life and armor gauge. Instead of being two bars at the periphery, they appear right at the middle of the screen like two translucent half-circles. Even in 2018, the idea is still super-cool—as is this watch which is being sold on Amazon. For only $25.99, you can now strap something on your wrist that reminds you of how much fun you had with an N64 back in the day. Other than the nostalgia factor, it also looks cool and proves that good interface coupled with well-though graphical design translate so well in real life.
However, just because it looks like something straight from a game doesn’t mean it’s a good watch. Thankfully, this timepiece, while nowhere near as good as those made by Rolex and Casio (for obvious reasons), is good enough to be useful from a practical perspective.
Perhaps the most practical feature of the watch is its huge clock face, with the design printed on it made in glossy paper. That means you won’t have to bring it close to your eyes whenever you want to check what time it is. As for the straps, they’re made of rubber. While not exactly classy, it’s definitely tough. It can withstand the rigors of everyday wear and tear. And if in any case, you manage to break it, you can always replace it with a new strap anytime.
Lastly, there’s the matter of the price, which is actually relatively cheap price. For a few dollars, you can wear something that will remind you of the famed spy as well as one of the best shooters in the N64’s rich history. Both of these definitely make the watch quite a steal.
Like James Bond Golden Eye, you deserve a cool, stylish watch. And as a gamer and/or a Bond fan, what better watch to wear on your wrist than one inspired by 007.
