OMEGA “Commander’s Watch”
2017 is the 50th anniversary of “You Only Live Twice”, the 40th anniversary of “The Spy Who Loved Me” and the 20th anniversary of “Tomorrow Never Dies” in each of which James Bond can be seen wearing his official military uniform. As a celebration OMEGA created a unique watch, saluting the ensign colours of the British Royal Navy, with touches of white, blue and red found throughout the watch.
For the launch at the Tate Gallery in London on the 5th July, Rutters were commissioned by AD Events to create a carpet which had to echo the design principles of the magnificent watch. The carpet was 160 metres long, 2m wide and produced using FP400, a carpet with tufted velour pile which offers great color depth and gelfoam backing which offers superb anti-slip properties.
