Gadget porn, or why I officially...

...covet this watch.

It's a Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Chronograph Canvas Watch and it is awesome for the following reasons:

It has a canvas strap - so did all of James Bond's watches. He never wore metal against the wrist and had a canvas strap even for his Rolex Oyster Perpetual.

Likewise, if Bond hadn't had £2,000 to blow on a watch, I think he'd have appreciated this
Rolexesque black face and clear lettering (which is phosphorescent.)

It incorporates a stopwatch - something I've always thought was vital in a watch, since I spent so long writing 30' second commercials (and reading them aloud 'to time.)

It's powered by Citizen Eco-Drive - a tiny solar panel which means you never need to replace the battery.

As most readers of my blog know, I have very fanciful James Bond aspirations and this watch matches most of them!
