Omegamania Preview #2: Grima Ring Watch


Ursula Andress (pictured), the original Bond girl, was the former owner of this jeweled Omega ring-watch by Andrew Grima that is up for auction at Omegamania taking place 14-15 April 2007. The force behind the 1969 "About Time" series for Omega, Grima was also a designer of only one-of-a-kind watches including the radically futuristic (for its time) solid gold LEDs originally featured here.

This 1972 ring-watch, like others by Rolex and LeCoultre, is built with very small mechanical movements but this vintage bling is iced with 28 diamonds, bark-finished platinum and a watch crystal of tourmaline. The expected price is on request only, so I can only imagine. Check it out here.
