The talented 40-year-old English actor, who is best known for playing protagonist Newt Scamander in the Fantastic Beasts film series, has been spotted wearing an aaa quality replica OMEGA Seamaster Planet Ocean 600M (ref. 22.214.171.124.03) while out and about promoting his latest film, the true crime drama The Good Nurse.
What’s particularly interesting about the watch is that he’s been wearing it with a black and grey NATO strap from perfect replica OMEGA’s 007 collection of watches and accessories. Then, when you consider that the Planet Ocean is also officially a ‘Bond watch’… Maybe it’s a hint that he’s eyeing the coveted role?
While the OMEGA watch that’s most associated with James Bond is the luxury fake Omega Seamaster Diver 300M, which was the first OMEGA to be seen in a Bond film and was worn by both Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig, Craig also wore a black Planet Ocean in both Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.
One of Swiss made fake OMEGA’s beefiest and sportiest dive watches, the Planet Ocean is water-resistant to an impressive 600 metres, boasts a helium-escape valve at 10 o’clock like the cheap replica Omega Seamaster Diver 300M and its in-house Master Chronometer calibre 8900 can be admired through a transparent caseback. It’s the perfect watch for a man of action like James Bond.
Of course, this is just speculation. Redmayne is an OMEGA ambassador after all, so it could just be that he’s wearing the high quality replica Omega as a contractual obligation and that he likes that Bond NATO strap on his blue Planet Ocean.
Redmayne has also previously suggested that he wouldn’t want to take up the mantle of the famous fictional spy, telling Variety back in 2016 “I would hate to see myself play James Bond. I love going to see James Bond and seeing really freaking cool actors that I admire doing great things. Never say never, but… No.” Talk about mixed signals.
