    I don't know if any of you had the opportunity to watch Top Gear's 50 Years of Bond Cars but if you did not, try to watch it.

    It was GREAT! It showcased the most memorable Bond cars and it contained interviews with directors, stunt drivers and even Sir Roger Moore and Daniel Craig.

    As always, the presenters are wearing nice watches as well. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Hammond for example, is clearly wearing an early model, vintage Speedmaster Professional. His Breitling Chrono Avenger is visible as well but the Speedmaster is what he was wearing for the most part.

    Somebody put the whole thing on YouTube and if you have an hour to burn, you can see the show at the link below. :thumbsup:

    The Speedy is clearly visible around the 26 minutes mark.

    I've seen the show the other day! The Toyota 2000GT was awesome! He mentioned that the car is worth around 500,000 pounds now!

    Funny you mentioned that... I always liked that model and while watching the show I thought to myself maybe I can find one for a couple of grand somewhere. Yeah,,, that thought got crushed.

    Watched last night...

    I loved the cars and think that the 1987 DB was the prettiest for me, not to discredit the '67 or 2010. Love them all, but especially loved the label on the TopGear made vanishing vehicle. Tried to get the full name and watch in the mix, not sure how they will come out but it was on the new toy(60 inch Plasma!)
