Anunciado como un destacado temprano para la próxima subasta del Monterey Jet Center este 18 de agosto, el único Aston Martin DB5 que el legendario e icónico actor haya poseído se ofrece directamente de la familia Connery, que se ha comprometido a donar una parte significativa de las ganancias de la venta a beneficio del Fondo de Filantropía Sean Connery. Encuentre más información sobre el Aston Martin haciendo clic a continuación.

Descripción

Número de chasis DB5/1681/R

Revestido con carrocería de aluminio ‘berlina’ de la casa de diseño milanesa, Carrozzeria Touring, chasis Aston Martin no. El DB5/1681/R resplandece en Snow Shadow Grey sobre cuero rojo Connolly. Entregado nuevo al Sr. A. White el 7 de julio de 1964, este DB5 de cinco velocidades pasó gran parte de su vida en el Reino Unido hasta que Sir Sean lo compró a través de RS Williams, un conocido especialista de Aston Martin. Hoy en día, la disponibilidad del DB5 de Connery representa una oportunidad única en la vida, el DB5/1681/R es el único DB5 de propiedad personal de Sir Sean y se ofrece a la venta directamente desde el patrimonio de Connery, que también se ha comprometido a donando una porción significativa de las ganancias de la venta para beneficiar al Fondo de Filantropía Sean Connery.

Otro aspecto a destacar en la venta del Connery Aston Martin es que su viejo amigo, compañero escocés y piloto de carreras del Campeonato Mundial de F1, Sir Jackie Stewart, se ha ofrecido a darle al comprador exitoso un paseo en el automóvil en un momento mutuamente conveniente. Si bien el viaje en sí sin duda será memorable, la oportunidad de quizás escuchar un poco más sobre Sir Sean de un amigo de toda la vida será sin duda un aspecto igualmente convincente de la bonificación adicional. Sir Sean y Sir Jackie compartieron una larga historia de trabajo caritativo juntos que data de más de cuatro décadas y la familia Connery ha seguido apoyando el trabajo y el compromiso de su padre con su amigo. Continúan haciéndolo hoy al apoyar la Fundación Race Against Dementia de Sir Jackie Stewart, un esfuerzo admirable compartido entre generaciones de familiares y amigos.

El Aston Martin DB5 está en muy buenas condiciones. De hecho, poco después de que Sir Sean comprara el automóvil, fue al destacado especialista en marcas RS Williams, donde recibió una renovación mecánica junto con un repintado completo al Snow Shadow Grey correcto, el tono plateado correcto para el Aston Martin del Sr. Bond. Desde entonces, el coche ha recibido un buen mantenimiento y recientemente se ha sometido a una inspección y un mantenimiento exhaustivos por parte de RS Williams en preparación para la subasta.

THE LARGEST OFFICIAL BOND VEHICLE EXHIBIT IN THE UNITED STATES LOCATED IN THE MULLIN FAMILY GRAND SALON

OPEN September 25, 2021 THROUGH October 22, 2022

SPECIAL EVENT TICKETS

EXHIBITION ABSTRACT

Produced in collaboration with EON Productions and The Ian Fleming® Foundation, Bond in Motion is the first official exhibition in the United States to feature original vehicles from the James Bond film franchise. The exhibit celebrates the 60th anniversary of the 007 films, since Dr. No was released in 1962.

With the publication of his first spy novel, Casino Royale (1953), author and former naval intelligence officer Ian Fleming introduced the world to the enchanting exploits of James Bond, a British officer in the Secret Intelligence Service, also known as MI6. In all, Fleming would produce twelve novels and two short stories, laying the foundation for what would become a global literary and cinematic legacy.

Beginning in 1962, with the movie adaptation of Fleming’s sixth title, Dr. No, the exciting and dangerous world of James Bond was translated to screen, setting the tone for Bond films to come. Much like the novels on which they are based, Bond films combine the adventure of exotic locations and scheming villains with the action of death-defying stunts, and heart-pounding chases in nearly every type of vehicle imaginable. Often modified by quartermaster “Q,” these vehicles, much like Bond himself, conceal their true nature until their weapons and gadgetry become important plot devices.

The Bond in Motion exhibit offers visitors a rare up-close experience of the most iconic vehicles associated with the world’s most famous secret agent, 007.

OMEGA – Goes Platinum-Gold For New James Bond Watch

Cutting-edge style and innovation have always been essential parts of the James Bond story. In keeping with that legacy, OMEGA has now delivered a brand new Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Numbered Edition, offering plenty of high-tech details for 007 fans to enjoy.

OMEGA Goes Platinum-Gold For New James Bond Watch

OMEGA has been equipping James Bond with its Seamaster timepieces since GoldenEye in 1995. This special new release is a proud celebration of that partnership, and provides a new addition to the 007 collection.

For an exceptional look, the 42 mm case is crafted in platinum-gold, with a platinum-gold plate on its side, engraved with each Numbered Edition number. The same beautiful material is also used for the polished-brushed buckle of the watch’s black leather strap.

More unique details can be uncovered throughout the design, including a black ceramic bezel ring with a platinum diving scale in positive relief, as well as a black enamel dial, which has been given a spiralling gun barrel design in 18K white gold.

As part of the OMEGA James Bond collection that was launched last year, this watch also includes a hidden number 50 within the Super-LumiNova of the 10 o’clock index – a reference to the 50th anniversary of the James Bond film On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. Elsewhere on the dial, you can find a 007 logo at 7 o’clock on the white enamel minute track, as well as 18K white gold features, including the hands, indexes and Bond family coat-of-arms at 12 o’clock.

Turning the watch over reveals a second Bond family coat-of-arms, which has been laser-engraved and filled with platinum on the sapphire crystal caseback. Its captivating final effect is completed with hand-engraved finishing in the finest detail. Through the glass, you can spy the OMEGA Co-Axial Master Chronometer Calibre 8807 – certified at the highest standards of precision, chronometric performance and magnetic resistance.

Finally, for fans who are able to obtain this Seamaster Diver 300M James Bond Numbered Edition, it comes presented in its own Globe-Trotter™ suitcase, bound by NATO-inspired straps. Inside, an additional black rubber strap is included.
