Mark your calendars for the weekend of September 10-11 when a special James Bond Enthusiasts Weekend will be held at the National Watch and Clock Museum in Columbia, PA. Attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite James Bond character, and prizes will be awarded for the best costumes.
The event kicks off Friday night September 10 with a black tie-optional Bond-themed Casino Night that will include poker, blackjack, and slot machines. Saturday events include tours of the National Watch & Clock Museum’s James Bond Watches exhibit, a Jeopardy-style game, a discussion of Ian Fleming’s books, a James Bond drink seminar (shaken, not stirred), and a screening of For Your Eyes Only. Prizes will be awarded to participants with the highest chip count at the casino night, the best character clothing, and the winner of “Bond Jeopardy.”
The James Bond Enthusiasts Weekend is being held in conjunction with the first-of-its-kind “Bond Watches, James Bond Watches” exhibit at the National Watch & Clock Museum. This show will include the widest selection of 007-related watch models ever assembled, representing all brands in the Eon Productions movies and officially-licensed timepieces. Highlighting the exhibit will be the only known Rolex owned and worn by Bond-creator Ian Fleming — believed to be his reference for the original, literary James Bond wristwatch.
