September/October 2015 Watch & Clock Bulletin

The wristwatch on the front cover refers to the article starting on page 426 titled “James Bond Wore Quartz Wristwatches. You Noticed.” Omega made this 300-meter divers’ wristwatch. It has a Seamaster model with a quartz movement (caliber 1538), which its manufacturer specified accurate to within minus 0.5 and plus 0.7 seconds per day. Originally, its battery would last 42 months. This timepiece is from 1994 and is believed to be identical to the one worn by Pierce Brosnan as James Bond in the movie GoldenEye, released in 1995. Of note is its dial, which features tritium markers. A few years after the movie was released, Omega changed the model—but not the model number—by using SuperLuminova for the luminescent dial marker paint. In the background is the pure legacy 1964 Aston Martin DB5 motor car, iconic “James Bond.” This photo was taken by Dell Deaton, who curated the Watch and Clock Museum exhibit titled James Bond Wore the Quartz Revolution and wrote this article.
The photos on the back cover were taken by Pete Schreiner during the 71st Annual Convention of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors, June 17-20, in Chattanooga, TN. He was the official photographer for the event with its railroad horology theme. Next year’s convention is set for Louisville, KY. The photo in the middle of the page is of a clock made by Bernie Tikippe, of Atlanta, GA. This precision regulator clock was presented to the National Watch and Clock Museum at the National Convention. It also was featured in the April 2010 issue of the Watch & Clock Bulletin in an article titled “A Simple Regulator with an Isochronous Combination of Pendulum and Escapement.” For more photos from the Convention, visit the National Association of Watch and Collectors Facebook page, go to Photos, and click on Albums.
