Speculation is rife that the plot may involve the global spread of a virus, which might have looked in poor taste at the height of the COVID-19 epidemic.

 

 

For Omega, which is intimately associated with the 007 franchise, it has pushed back plans for a big splash with a special Seamaster that Daniel Craig is seen wearing in the film.

Not that you would have known that over the weekend, when Mr Craig stuck with a scheduled appearance on America’s Saturday Night Live wearing the $9,200 Seamaster Diver 300M 007 Edition watch.
